Team News

  • Ajaccio have no new injury concerns heading into their clash with Saint-Etienne.
  • However manager Alex Dupont will have a number of decisions to make following a slightly disappointing display against Nancy.
  • Adrian Mutu netted from the spot in the draw with the bottom side, while Chahir Belghazouani has also been in impressive form in recent times.
  • That attacking duo will be expected to remain in the starting eleven, but the likes of Eduardo and Sigamary Diarra may find their first-team places under threat after failing to impress so far this term.
  • Saint-Etienne have no new injury concerns but will still be without a number of players who are yet to recover from fitness problems.
  • Ismael Diomande and Banel Nicolita have still not recovered from thigh injuries, Kurt Zouma has not quite shook off an ankle problem, while Danijel Aleksic is also unavailable.
  • Expect Romain Hamouma to be included in the side after he netted the winner against Valenciennes, while the impressive trio of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Max Gradel and Brandao to be involved in some capacity.

Prediction

  • Saint-Etienne travel to Ajaccio hoping to continue a fine run of form that has seen them emerge as title contenders.
  • Les Verts earned a 1-0 win over fellow high-flyers Valenciennes last weekend, a result that temporarily moved them to the top of Ligue 1.
  • Paris Saint-Germain quickly overtook Christophe Galtier's men as league leaders, but the men from the Rhone can keep themselves in the thick of the championship race with a win over an Ajaccio side that has fallen to home defeats against Marseille and Sochaux.
  • The Corscians will be eager to show some of the steel that has made them such a difficult team to beat on home turf in past seasons, however Saint-Etienne possess much more quality going forward and should be able to overcome Alex Dupont's men and keep pace at the sharp end of the division.
