Ajaccio will be buoyant, following a 2-0 away win against Montpellier in their last fixture.

Also, Ajaccio have a huge task to over-turn their rivals in this fixture, having already lost three games this season. Now they have 0 matches won, 4 games lost and 1 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in twentieth place, with a total of one point having drawn one game and lost four fixtures.

Ajaccio have drawn one game and lost one game of their two League matches at home this season.

A win in this fixture would take AC Ajaccio’s points to 4 in the League.

It is likely that one key players will miss Sunday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Olivier Pantaloni and his Ajaccio team.

FC Lorient go into this game with seven points secured

Can Lorient make it three out of three, having turned over RC Lens 5-2 and Clermont Foot 2-1 in their last two games?

Also, Lorient will be hopeful of shaking off the poor form that has seen them lose one game this Ligue 1 season. With seven points, they currently sit seventh in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 2 wins, 1 losses and 1 draws having won two matches, drawn one game, and lost one game.

Lorient will travel to Ajaccio with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one win, one draw, and one defeat.

A victory for FC Lorient would put them on 10 points.

Good Attacking Performance

Lorient will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (7). Their stand out attacking players have been Terem Moffi (4), Ibrahima Kone (1), and Vito Mannone. Lorient’s defensive record in the Ligue 1 has so far been very weak, with eight goals conceded in their last games. This is an issue that Regis Le Bris urgently needs to address within the dressing room.

Injury and illness have depleted Regis Le Bris’s Lorient and they will likely be missing three key personnel for Sunday’s match.

The last time both teams met in this competition was July 2022 and the score line ended up with a 1-1 draw.
