AC Ajaccio – Brest AC Ajaccio is continuing their good run having now a single defeat in last 8 games (3 win and 4 draws in rest). Playing away at Evian they won 2-0 but let’s face it Evian were way better than their opponents but too lack of concertation upfront made them to lose this game. Evian had at least 4 good chances to open the score but on a counter Ajaccio did it with fem minute before the break. In second halt the heavy snow started and of course the quality of the game suffered a lot. Because of this after 60 mins the game was stopped and re- opened after aprox 20 mins. Soon after this Ajaccio remained in 10 men while Evian still chasing the goal. An unfortunate and wrong decision of the referee made that both team to play in 10, Tejeda being sent off totally wrong. No much action till the end from Evian, only a stupid owngoal who made Ajaccio to take a vital win in their fight for avoiding relegation. And so, after a very long period with Ajaccio on a relegation spot, starting with this win Ajaccio saw themselves out of relegation spots. Some fatigue in Ajaccio squad, team playing in French cup away at St. Etienne, losing 1-2 after extra time, conceding in 120 mins, in a game where they used standard team. For this game they have almost all squad available, Sainati remaining the only suspended player. Brest started 2016 with a clear defeat 0-2 at Nimes, but last week they keep to a draw the leader Nancy after a pretty good game. Is true Nancy have had much time the ball but without putting in real danger the Hartock’s goal. Nancy need a stupid mistake made by the new comer Sane who play the ball with the hand in penalty area. They converted this penalty and the game finished 1-1, despite the fact Brest tried a bit much in the last minutes. But when they play on the road they were quite poor this season took only 9 points losing 6 times. Anyway if they will continue in this way as they started 2016 will be difficult for them not to be involved in relegation battle. Falette is suspended, while striker Adnane recovered from an injury and will be in first 11 So keeping in mind Ajaccio had only 4 days for rest (while Brest had 9 days for preparing this game) is possible to see some tired legs in Ajaccio squad this time. Brest can take advantage of this and can claim at least a point from this trip. Gl PS Interesting fact: The referee Thual shown 4 red cards in last 3 games he conducts in Ligue 2. Keeping in mind Ajaccio is a very undisciplined team, I believe is a good think to consider a red card in this game – if some bookie offers this option.
