Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals

A real chess match could be in store as Valenciennes and Ajaccio go head-to-head, with hardly anything between the players in terms of who could claim victory. The statistics do not provide any proper confidence in that regard, but they are pointing strongly towards there being 2 goals or fewer in the fixture. That's a prediction available at best priced odds of 1.40 with the bookies, so we make under 2.5 goals our tip of the day on this occasion.
