AC Ajaccio require a positive result, as RC Strasburg go to Stade Francois Coty
Auxerre were beaten 1-0 at Stade de l’Abbe-Deschamps, the last time that Ajaccio played.
Also, Olivier Pantaloni may ponder the reasons why his Ajaccio team are struggling at the bottom of the table this season. But nine defeats out of the last 13 games, should be all the analysis that he really needs. Their position is nineteenth in the League and they have eight points, that is, 2W, 9L and 2D having won two matches, drawn two games, and lost nine meetings.
Ajaccio have drawn one game and lost five meetings of their six League matches at home this season.
Victory for AC Ajaccio would take their points tally to 11 so far this season.
It is likely that one key players will miss Saturday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Olivier Pantaloni and his Ajaccio team.

Now they have 1 matches won, 5 games lost and 7 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in seventeenth place, with a total of 10 points having won one game, drawn seven matches, and lost five meetings.

Winning this fixture will see RC Strasburg on 13 points.
