French Ligue 1
Date: 28 December 2022, Wednesday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francois Coty (Ajaccio).
AC Ajaccio host Angers on Wednesday afternoon at Stade Francois Coty as Ligue 1 returns to action after the World Cup break.
We can consider this a proper relegation six-pointer with both outfits currently sitting down in the red zone at the moment.
AC Ajaccio are hoping to avoid the immediate return to the second-class football. To fulfill their mission, the team led by Olivier Pantaloni need to improve the home form.
AC Ajaccio have a poor record at Stade Francois Coty with one win, one draw, and five defeats in seven league games there so far in the season.
On a positive note, they did break the negative run in their own backyard by beating Strasbourg 4-2 in the previous home match back in early-November.
The win helped AC Ajaccio move up to the 17th position in the league standings. The safe zone is very close with both Nantes and Brest sitting lock on points with them after 15 games.
Angers, on the other side, hold the very foot of the Ligue 1 ladder at the moment. They have lost 11 of the inaugural 15 matches of the season and are four points behind AC Ajaccio going into this Wednesday’s clash.
Head coach Abdelaziz Bouhazama can’t be satisfied with the team’s form in the recent friendlies either since Angers lost two, drew one, and won one of four mid-season exhibitions, despite facing modest rivals in the process.
