Ajaccio once again had a bad season, despite I, really, expected more from them in this season. They show lot of availability and creativity in pre-season but they haven’t been able to keep a good pace during the season. Is true they struggled with some injuries: Sainati, Mandanda, with Lippini same “joker” with red cards and rounds of suspension, with young strikers Chaibi and Gapka too shy upfront. They are coming after lost 1-4 city derby against GFC Ajaccio, playing in 10 men for more than 1 hour, Lippini being sent off. So he will miss here.
Nimes had a difficult start of the season but after round 5th they had an excellent period becoming the best team on the road. But suddenly, in last 5 games they forgot to play losing on the road against poor Orleans and Auxerre losing they aura of best away team. Their main problem was the games played on their own pitch, wining a single game in 9 games losing 3 times. After the inter-season transfers, I expected Nimes to be on a downtrend (remember they lost almost all strikers). But they re-discovered another 2 strikers Alioui and Kouakou who kept Nimes alive. Bad news for Nimes came this week: Kouakou got a nasty injury and will miss about 2 months. Also another 3 starters will still miss for this last trip: Gallon, Angoula and Ripart.
After the disappointing result in Ajaccio city derby, AC doesn’t afford to make another embarrassment game. Keeeping in mind latest evolutions Nimes had on the road and their problems upfront, I guess Ajaccio will snatch the win here. Don’t sure if AH worth a try but I’ll take Ajaccio -0.75 ah. gl
