In their previous match, Ajaccio met Rennes on Sunday and it finished in a heavy 0:5 defeat at home. The club is going through a streak of two successive defeats and could not reach a victorious outcome in any of its last ten encounters. Performing at home was of little help throughout the last ten Ajaccio meetings as the hosts won 4 times and the guests won 4 times. Only two of the club’s last 10 clashes resulted in draws. Three out of the last five matches of the team featured over 2.5 goals, with none witnessing goals at both ends of the field. Ajaccio’s defensive efforts proved enough to limit the opposition to no goals in two of these games and they failed to score on their own in all five. The total of netted goals by the sides involved across the club’s last five meetings amounts to 13.
