It has been seldom in recent games that Paris FC have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that PFC have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 9 goals on the way. That kind of trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, however.

Team News: Paris FC
Lamine Diaby-Fadiga (Thigh Problems) and Lalaïna Nomenjanahary (Knee Injury) will not be able to play for Paris manager René Girard.
Team News: AC Ajaccio
With a completely injury-free squad ready to go, AC Ajaccio manager Olivier Pantaloni does not have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that AC Ajaccio may find it difficult to score against this Paris FC side who we think will get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
That’s why our selection here is for a good tussle with a 1-0 win for Paris FC at the end of the match.
There should be little in it.
