AC Ajaccio vs Lorient
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 04 September 2022
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francois Coty.
AC Ajaccio are yet to record a victory upon returning to the elite division of French football. They have just a point after playing four fixtures this campaign.
However, it is worth noting that Pantaloni’s men indeed have had a pretty tough schedule to begin with, featuring the clashes with Lille, Rennes, Lens and Lyon in their previous four rounds.
Ajaccio showed some of their offensive potential in those fixtures by scoring one each except for a goalless draw against Lens. The problem for French manager lies in his team’s defensive line which allowed two or more goals in three of the inaugural four games of the season.
Meanwhile, Lorient were one of worst the last season, and they were lucky to have avoided relegation.
They had finished 16th in a table of 20, and they evaded dumping into the second division with the clear of just four points. They had won just eight times all through the previous campaign, and had let in goals in huge numbers.
However, they have started off this season with a set of unbeaten outcomes. They are on a three-game unbeaten run so far this campaign.
