Paris Saint Germain

Incumbent football champion and online bookie favorite, Paris Saint Germain (PSG) is determined to keep their title contenders at bay,  via securing a big win over the minnow, Ajaccio. With constant threats from AS Monaco and Lille, the club will ensure that they will be the last team standing at the season’s end.


Match Date: 11 January 2014 (local time)
Venue: Stade Francois-Coty
Team Form


Thrashed by Reims with four (4) goals, Ajaccio’s possibility of remaining in the top-flight league continues to decrease. Unable to improve their performance, the squad faces a bigger problem as they need to overcome Paris Saint Germain at the start of the season’s second half.


Already at the rock bottom part of the table, Ajaccio’s quest to survive the tournament becomes even harder. Their team form speaks well of their lackluster performance. To note, the club has only won once since the season started and it is only through draws that it is able to secure points under its belt.


Giving the club more headaches is the lack of a steady manager, who can pitch in more enthusiasm, motivation and determination to stay alive.


Moreover, with the departure of team captain Jean-Baptiste Pierazzi, Ajaccio continues to manifest a bleak future ahead of them.


Paris Saint Germain

PSG’s even steven finish against Lille placed them in an uncomfortable spot. The draw prevented them from securing a comfortable lead from their contenders. With just a 3-point lead against Monaco and a not so stable 4-point advantage over Lille, the two (2) clubs continue to pressure and remind them of their volatile position to win the title race.

Nevertheless, PSG is off to a good start. An upcoming encounter against the rock bottom Ajaccio gives them the opportunity to score extra points and have a strong grip of the lead. They have been successful in twenty-nine (29) of their last thirty (30) matches and averages at least two (2) goals in their eleven (11) encounters. This therefore, gives them the overt upper hand in the match.


Football betting tip:  Paris Saint Germain

Laurent Blanc shall not waste the opportunity to seal their lead in the French League. The club shall not take the risk of giving their close contenders the chance to steal the limelight from them due to some unjustifiable mistake. As for Ajaccio, their stay in Ligue 1 remains uncertain. Unable to secure their second victory, the club is headed toward an early end this season.
