Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Ajaccio and Rennes face each other at Stade Francois Coty in the opening match of Sunday’s program. Ajaccio failed to win the last ten league matches and, as a result, they failed to secure the Ligue 1 survival. Considering that L’ours have been struggling at the back of late, home win should not be considered. Thomas Mangani is banned for the match, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
Les Rouges et Noirs, on the other hand, aim to build on a 4-0 win over Troyes. Rennes are eager to represent France in European competitions next term and we predict that they will take advantage of Ajaccio’s shaky defence. Keep in mind, though, that all Djed Spence, Birger Meling, Desire Doue, Adrien Truffert, and Xeka should miss out with injuries for the away team this time out.
