Team News

  • Ajaccio will be without Ricardo Faty for a month, after the midfielder underwent surgery on an ankle injury, while Eduardo is a doubt after missing the defeat to Troyes with a groin injury.
  • Midfielder Jean Makoun and defender John Boye are both still doubtful due to thigh injuries, while Abdoulaye Sane and Victor Montano are still on the sidelines. However, there is some good news as Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik returns from suspension.

Prediction

  • Ajaccio take on Rennes at the Stade Francois Coty looking to end the first half of the campaign on a high following the sacking of manager Alex Dupont.
  • Dupont was dismissed days after the 3-2 defeat at Troyes, and caretaker boss Stephane Pagannelli will be tasked with guiding the Corsicans to a positive result against the in-form Bretons after a run of just one win in six games.
  • The likes of Adrian Mutu and Chahir Belghazouani are likely to be involved if the islanders are to take the points, but they will also be faced with a big challenge at the other end of the pitch, where the home defence will have to try and stand firm against an attack headed by talented playmakers Romain Alessandrini, Julien Feret and Jonathan Pitroipa.
  • If that trio are able to inflict the same damage on Ajaccio that they have to many sides this term, then it could be a long evening for Pagannelli's men.
