Ligue 1 Match Preview: AC Ajaccio vs. Stade de Reims

Updated: May 7, 2014

Match Date: 10 May 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stade Francois-Coty


The Corsican club, AC Ajaccio, shall take the opportunity to put up a good show to its supporters after failing to retain its Ligue 1 status. The club will try to clinch a victory against Stade de Reims despite the difficulty that lies ahead of them.


The season has already ended for the L’ours. Throughout the season, AC Ajaccio has already struggled to survive. Its unfortunate story shows a squad that was able to save other clubs through its losses, but was unable to score points for its survival.


Apparently, the upcoming match at Stade Francois Coty is the Ajaccio’s last hurrah and should they win, that will serve as their best gift to those who never dared to leave their side.


As for Reims, its story is a total opposite of Ajaccio. After struggling in the 14th spot last season, the club made it to Ligue 1’s top 10.


Currently, Reims is ranked as the 8th best club of France’s top-flight league. But it is a bit disappointing to see their team form suffer. Reims was able to snatch a narrow 1-0 victory over Evian Thonon Gaillard. But it was their first win after failing to collect points in its 5 previous matches.


Clearly, Reims is the top pick of sports betting sites. But as usual, they cannot afford to be complacent as Ajaccio is determined to pull off a victory during its remaining days in Ligue 1.


Prediction:  Stade de Reims
