ajaccio by 1 @ 4,00
I really dont like the home side and I always bet against them, but here they got great chances to take something, having home advantage and being much more fresher that their opponents.
Ajaccio won promotion only due to their great home results in League 3. They lost just 1 of their last 5 matches here, beating Nantes and Laval, both with 3;1. Last round before the break Ajaccio made goaless draw away from home against Giungamp and I expect their unbeaten run to continue in their 1st match for 2013.
On the other side Istres played cup game with extra time and penalties against French league 1 side - Valenciennes winning progress for the competition. Its a great achievment and the players gave their best, so I see some of them rested here. Also Istres are not from the best travelers, losing 4 straight times in French League 2 away from home.
expected results: 1;0 or 2;1
