EA Guingamp enter this game following a 0-0 Ligue 2 drawn game against Clermont Foot.
Games with EA Guingamp have been quite unexciting encounters lately with a drought of goals being the norm. Over their past half dozen clashes, a miniscule aggregate goal total of 5 has been recorded between both them and their opposition at an average of 0.83 goals per game. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily be sustained into this next game, of course.
Their previous form shows that EA Guingamp:
- have not lost a league tie with AC Ajaccio in their last 6 matches.
- are undefeated in their previous 3 home league matches.
AC Ajaccio will go into the game following on from a 0-1 Ligue 2 win vs Rodez in their last outing.
The only player to score from AC Ajaccio was Riad Nouri (82').
The trend of at least one team drawing a blank in games involving AC Ajaccio has been noticeable in recent matches. Checking on their last 6 games reveals that this has occurred 5 times. During those clashes, their opponents have hit a goal aggregate of 10 while L 'Ours have scored 5.
Their past results show that AC Ajaccio:
- have not emerged victorious against EA Guingamp when having played them away from home in the previous 9 league games. A very poor run of away results.
- are undefeated in their previous 2 league matches away from home.

Team News: AC Ajaccio
Owing to a completely injury-free group ready to go, AC Ajaccio boss Olivier Pantaloni does not have any fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game.
We feel that in this game, AC Ajaccio are dangerous enough to score against this EA Guingamp lineup, but it may not quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We can see a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 advantage for EA Guingamp after 90 minutes. Let’s just see how this one goes.
