GFC Ajaccio vs Lens
GFC Ajaccio – Lens
GFC Ajaccio is on a free falling, being the single team who took 0 points in last 5 rounds. Is in a similar situation Lens was at the start of the season when lost all first 7 games in a row. Albert Cartier’s boys didn’t find themselves making quite poor games and being now close to relegation spot having only 6 points more than play-out spot occupied by Bourg Peronnas. 13 goals conceded and only 4 goals scored shown the dimension of the disaster from these last 5 rounds. At Chateauroux they had almost an incredible good first half of hour, leading 1-0, missing another 4 great chances before opening the score but all fall apart after Chateauroux leveled. They need rapid a positive reaction in order to not be deep involved in the relegation and must link few positive results in the coming rounds. Interesting to see how the things will develop for them keeping in mind they will play against bottom ranked team as Nancy, Tours, Niort even Lens. For this game Puel + Ba are suspended.
Also Lens is not doing very well, at least at home when they lost 3rd game played this year in front of their fans, once again 0-1 versus Clemont this time. The pressure when playing at home seems to be big, because Lens is doing much better on the road, in 2018 being undefeated with 2 wins and 2 draws. Sikora tried to change something in the squad last games playing without few starters ( Lopez, Bayala, Bellegarde, Koukou, DjeDje) rotating a lot but not so much luck. A lucky win came in 92 mins versus Quevilly and a harsh defeat versus Clermont after not so great games. Now another fact who must be taken in account (together with a hard winter all over the France and with possible a lot of difficult pitches) Lens played in French Cup being knocked out by a National team after playing 120 mins and losing at penalties. No fresh missing for Lens.
So GFC should have fresh legs here. But their shape is quite incredible. I think we will see a close game, both trying not to lose despite trying to win. Perhaps a low scoring draw. Gl
