Our recommended bet for Sunday’s clash at the Stade de l’Aube comes in the form of a draw between Troyes and Ajaccio, featuring a goal from Mama Balde.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £150 with Bet365.
Troyes are set to act as the hosts this weekend, when relegation-battling Ajaccio make the trip to the Stade de l’Aube for a Ligue 1 clash on Sunday, October 16th.
Whilst it is the former who boast the advantage when it comes to position in the French top-flight, though, Ajaccio will actually head into proceedings altogether brimming with confidence.
This comes on the back of a timely resurgence over the course of the last couple of weeks.
After slipping to defeat in six of their first seven outings, L’ours were widely labelled as being amongst the favourites for the drop come the season’s end.
Two wins from their last three, though, have culminated in Olivier Pantaloni’s troops climbing off the foot of the Ligue 1 standings, to within point of safety.
The latter of these results came in particularly headline-grabbing fashion, as a Leonardo Balerdi own goal added to Bevic Moussiti-Oko’s first-half strike to guide Ajaccio to a 2-1 triumph at high-flying Olympique Marseille.
Upcoming hosts Troyes, on the other hand, will enter Sunday’s action fresh off an altogether more disappointing result last time out.
After slipping to defeat in just one of their prior six, a run which included wins over all of Angers, Clermont and most notably, Monaco, ESTAC slipped to defeat at the hands of OGC Nice.
Despite a spirited late comeback attempt, strikes on the part of Xavier Chavalerin and Abdu Conte ultimately proved to be little more than a consolation en route to a 3-2 final scoreline.
Troyes, in turn, sit 12th in the Ligue 1 table, three points clear of the drop zone and a further point clear of Ajaccio.
We at 101, though, based on form, view an eventual sharing of the spoils as the most likely outcome come the full-time whistle at the Stade de l’Aube on Sunday evening.
