PSG v Ajaccio Preview, Ligue 1, Sunday 18th August 2013

PSG will be looking to put behind them a poor performance last weekend in which they could only manage a 1-1 draw away against Montpellier, as with their squad boasting numerous world class players their fans will have been very dissapointed with the result.

However, now with home advantage the hosts will be expected to comfortably win this game and with the likes of Ibrahimovic, Lavezzi and Cavani all likely to be involved, we should see the current defending Ligue 1 Champions pick up their first win of the new season come sunday night.

Ajaccio were defeated 1-0 at home against Saint Etienne in their opening game of the season last weekend and are now up against a much superior opponent in PSG.

Ajaccio struggled to survive relegation last season and with coach Fabrizio Ravenelli having not brought any signifcant new signings into the club during the summer it looks almost assured that Ajaccio will again be fighting for their Ligue 1 survival again during this campaign.

PSG v Ajaccio Team News

PSG Team News:

Coach Laurent Blanc has no reported injuries or suspensions to contend with and after last weekend’s dissapointing 1-1 draw against Montpellier looks likely to play his strongest side here which will include the big money signing of Cavani who only came on as a late substitute in last weekend’s game, starting up front alongside Ibrahimovic.

Ajaccio Team News:

Coach Fabrizio Ravenelli will be forced to make at least one change to the side that lost against Saint Etienne last weekend with right winger Benjamin André suspended after being sent off during that match for two bookable offences. Sigamary Diarra or new signing Laurent Bonnart look the most likely candidates to come in and replace him.

Who Has The Advantage?

Sunday night’s game from the Parc de Princes will become the 13th meeting between the two clubs over the years of which PSG have won 4, Ajaccio have won 2 and there has been an incredible 6 draws.

The most recent meetings does see PSG with a slight advantage though having won 2 and Ajaccio having just the 1 victory, but there has been 2 draws and that would be a result that Fabrizio Ravenelli would be very happy to settle for in this game.

Average Goals Per Game?

24 goals have been scored during the previous 12 matches which gives us with an average goals per game statistic of 2.00 which suggests this game might only see one or two goals scored come sunday night.

PSG v Ajaccio Match Betting Odds Market.

PSG have a squad that many managers only dream about and with home advantage this weekend it should come as no real shock to see the online bookmakers making the hosts the clear odds on favourites to win this game at a best price of just 1/5 with Bet365 – £200 Free Bets for New Customers.

The Draw will no doubt tempt some interest at a current best price of 6/1 with BetVictor – £25 Free Bets for New Customers as this has been the most common result when these two sides have met each other over the years and with Ajaccio having lost their opening game last week, they would certainly settle for a point here against the defending Ligue 1 Champions.

Ajaccio are given absoloutely no chance what so ever in winning this game as their price of 17/1 with Betfred – £10 Free Bets No Deposit Required for New Customers suggests and it would come as a major shock if they did manage to pull off a miracle and win this game.

PSG v Ajaccio Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

PSG were not that impressive last weekend in their 1-1 draw against Montpellier and there were signs that the side could have more individuals than it does team players at the moment.

Coach Laurent Blanc would of no doubt made his feelings very clear to the players after the game what he thought about that result and as such I would expect to see at least a couple of changes to his starting lineup for this game which should include Cavani and Ibrahimovic leading the attack up front.

Ajaccio do seem to have been a side that has frustrated PSG over the years as the previous two games that took place last season both ended up all square, but with the firepower that this PSG side has available this season I would be extremely shocked to see this game finish up in a draw and expect the hosts to win comfortably on the night by at least a couple of goals.

Not much value to be had here as the online bookmakers really can’t see PSG losing this game, so the goals markets look your best opportunity here it seems.
