Team News: AC Ajaccio
AC Ajaccio manager Olivier Pantaloni will be grateful to have no fitness worries whatsoever coming into this match with a fully healthy squad to pick from.
Team News: Paris FC
In an otherwise full-strength squad, there’s only a single fitness problem for the Paris FC boss René Girard to be concerned with. Charles Boli (Muscle Injury) misses out for this game.
We think that AC Ajaccio could well find it tough to get anything against this Paris FC side who we think will get the vital goal that wins it.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a very even match with a 0-1 victory for Paris FC after 90 minutes.
Expecting it to be tight.
