AC Ajaccio vs Monaco
French Ligue 1
Date: 19 March 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francois Coty (Ajaccio).

Monaco took just one point from the previous three Ligue 1 affairs and dropped out of the top-three in the league ladder as a consequence.

They are five points behind Marseille in second and two points shy of Lens in third as Philippe Clement’s men desperately need to bounce back if they want to stay in contention for the top-three finish and a spot in the UEFA Champions League next year.

Les Monegasques have really been struggling in defense in recent weeks, allowing two or more goals in three successive games across competitions.

They fell 0-1 at home to Reims last weekend in a game in which they could have easily conceded more goals as their rivals created numerous clear-cut openings on the occasion.

Clement’s men are now up against the league’s worst attacking line as they visit Stade Francois Coty to tackle relegation-threatened AC Ajaccio.

The hosts lost five of the last six league affairs without scoring a single goal in any of these defeats.

Olivier Pantaloni’s squad currently sit third form bottom in the league table and they will enter this off the back of a 0-1 home defeat to Montpellier.

AC Ajaccio registered only a single shot on target in the 90 minutes of action seven days ago at their Stade Francois Coty.
