The Ligue 1 tie at Stade Francois Coty on Sunday sees home team AC Ajaccio up against Auxerre.
With 5 defeats in the last 6 matches across all tournaments, the situation at AC Ajaccio could probably be a lot better. They need to improve their game or prepare for more disappointment as they face Auxerre at home.
AC Ajaccio are not a high scoring team these days, as they only found the back of the net five times in the last ten outings. That is an average of just 0.5 goals per game, as they conceded 18 goals. They managed zero clean sheets in these matches.
