The superstars of Paris Saint Germain will play their second match of the French league as guests of Ajaccio. In the first round of the league PSG managed to take only a draw 2-2 against Lorient at home, which wasn’t a dream start for Carlo Ancelotti’s players.
In this match PSG’s players created around 16 goal attempts but only Zlatan Ibrahimovic managed to score. Although he made it twice, the defence conceded two goals from just 6 goals attempts, which certainly speaks of problems in both the attack and the defence line. Surely one of the main factors that influenced for this is the presence of too many new players in the squad. The time is not enough for the new names to fit in the team and to do what the fans expect from them.
The question is whether one week between the two matches was sufficient to smooth out the problems and so the players of PSG to appear at their best against Ajaccio. Personally I don’t believe that.
Unlike PSG the team of Ajaccio succeeded to gain a killing efficiency in their first match. The visit was in Nice and for the entire match Ajaccio’s attackers managed to reach the scoring position exactly three times. Of these three, however, fell the only goal of the match, which gathered all three points for the players of Ajaccio.
The team stood well in defence. The opponent’s attackers were able to shoot eight times to the net, but with zero efficiency.
The bookmakers naturally placed PSG as the favourite in this match, but my preference will go to the competitors of Ajaccio. Asian Handicap odds for this meeting offer odds of 2.025 with an advantage for Ajaccio on +0.5;+1 goal. This will be my prediction for the match.
