Montpellier will face Ajaccio on Wednesday - Ligue 1

Montpellier will host Ajaccio at the Stade de la Mosson on Wednesday evening in the fourth matchday of the 2022-23 Ligue 1 campaign.

La Paillade suffered back-to-back defeats after their opening day win over Troyes. However, they bounced back with a statement win last time out, beating 10-man Brest 7-0 away from home to record their biggest ever Ligue 1 victory.

The home side have now picked up six points from four games and sit eighth in the league table. They will be looking to pick up back-to-back league wins when they play this week.

Ajaccio, meanwhile, have endured a tough return to the French top flight and are without a win so far. They were beaten 3-1 by Lille in their last game and were already three goals down before Cyrille Bayala scored a late consolation goal.

The newly-promoted outfit sit rock-bottom in the Ligue 1 standings with just one point from four games. They will aim to pick up their first win of the season when they play on Wednesday.

Montpellier vs Ajaccio Prediction

Montpellier's latest result ended a run of back-to-back defeats and they will be looking to build on that this week. They have struggled on home turf of late but will hope they can capitalize on their home advantage this weekend.

The visitors are on a four-game winless streak with four of those games ending in defeat. The hosts are in much better form ahead of their midweek clash and should win here.
