AC Ajaccio vs Monaco – After losing to Montpellier 0-1 in their previous match in Ligue 1, AC Ajaccio will be looking for a better outcome this time.

In that contest, AC Ajaccio had 48% of the ball and 7 attempts on goal, with 1 of those being successful. Four of Montpellier’s 12 attempts on goal were on target. Montpellier struck through Elye Wahi (68′).

In recent years, AC Ajaccio has rarely refused to surrender. They will be troubled by the fact that AC Ajaccio has conceded goals in six of their previous six matches, totaling 11 goals during that span.

But there’s no guarantee that trend will continue into this game. In their prior three league games against Monaco, AC Ajaccio had failed to win any of those games.

Monaco will be looking to right the wrongs from their last Ligue 1 match, which they lost to Reims. Monaco had 49% of the possession in that game and made 14 shots on goal, three of which were successful.

Reims had eight of its 17 attempts on goal at goal at the other end. Reims struck through Folarin Balogun (51′). Goals have been scored in as many as 21 of Monaco’s last 6 games, or an average of 3.5 goals per game, indicating their participation in successful contests.

From this sum, their opponents have made 12 hits. Monaco hasn’t lost in any of their previous seven league away games coming into this contest.

AC Ajaccio vs Monaco – Betting Analysis

A review of their most recent head-to-head matches, which date back to the 29th of October 2005, reveals that AC Ajaccio has won one and Monaco has won five, with no outcomes being drawn.

In total, 21 goals were tallied in these matches between the two teams, with 4 coming from L’Ours and 17 coming from Les Rouge et Blanc. There are 3.5 goals scored on average per contest.

These teams’ latest league encounter took place on Ligue 1 Match Day 19 on January 15, 2023, with Monaco defeating AC Ajaccio 7-1.

Monaco had a 66% control advantage and 8 of its 11 shots on goal were successful. Axel Disasi (2′), Krépin Diatta (6′), Wissam Ben Yedder (21′, 28′, 35′), and Breel Embolo (63′, 89′) were responsible for the goals.

AC Ajaccio, on the other hand, had 5 attempts total, with 2 of them finding the back of the net. The goal was scored by Youcef Belali (11′). Ruddy Buquet served as the judge.

Olivier Pantaloni, the manager of AC Ajaccio, will be without Vincent Marchetti (hamstring injury), Mickal Alphonse (illness), Yoann Touzghar (stretched ligament), Youssouf Koné (sprained foot), Romain Hamouma (unknown injury), and Thomas Mangani (pneumothorax).

We believe L’Ours should use a 4-4-2 system with the following players: Mickael Barreto, Ismael Diallo, Clément Vidal, Cedric Avinel, Mohamed Youssouf, Cyrille Bayala, Moussa Djitté, Mounam El Idrissy, and Youcef Belali.

Philippe Clement, the boss of Monaco, must make a decision from a group that has some fitness issues. Both Mohamed Camara (ankle injury) and Kevin Volland (fractured rib) aren’t healthy enough to be chosen.

With Alexander Nubel, Ruben Aguilar, Axel Disasi, Malang Sarr, Caio Henrique, Krepin Diatta, Youssouf Fofana, Eliot Matazo, Aleksandr Golovin, Wissam Ben Yedder, and Breel Embolo as their starting lineup, Les Rouge et Blanc appear likely to open the game with a 4-4-2 formation.

We believe that AC Ajaccio would be unhappy if they were unable to defeat this Monaco lineup with a goal, but even a single goal might not prevent them from giving up a few goals on the other end.

 What are the top odds for this match?

Turning to the betting odds on the 90-minute result market, staking on AC Ajaccio can be had for 5.05, a wager on the game finishing all-square is 3.7 and putting your money on a win for Monaco will get you 1.73. They’re the top market prices offered at present.
