Toulouse vs AC Ajaccio
French Ligue 1
Date: 1 January 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadium de Toulouse (Toulouse).
AC Ajaccio celebrated a huge 1-0 victory over direct relegation rivals Angers on Wednesday evening.
Youcef Belaili made the difference by netting the only goal of the game from the penalty-spot. Olivier Pantaloni can be thrilled with the defensive performance his men have put up on the occasion.
AC Ajaccio thus continued from where they stopped before the World Cup break. They now have two wins and a draw in the previous three Ligue 1 affairs.
This fantastic thread has finally moved them into safe waters. Pantaloni’s troops jumped to the 14th position in the league table.
They will be hoping to extend this three-game unbeaten streak on Sunday afternoon when they travel to Stadium de Toulouse to battle the last season’s Ligue 2 rivals Toulouse in Matchday No 17.
A quick turnaround may represent an issue for the hosts who had a very tough away game against Marseille on Thursday evening. It ended late (22:00 pm UK time), meaning Toulouse had less than three days to recover ahead of this fixture.
Moving forward, Philippe Montanier’s men did not finish the first part of the season (pre-World Cup) in the best way since they lost three games on the spin.
Toulouse are now just one point above AC Ajaccio in the bottom half of the standings and they could easily drag themselves in the relegation scrap with a potential defeat on the first day of the year.

Toulouse vs Ajaccio Prediction
Toulouse allowed two or more goals in five consecutive league matches before the World Cup break and they did not look great in the recent friendlies either. Knowing also this is a very quick turnaround for the hosts, we will back C Ajaccio to claim the spoils here.
