Ajaccio have only collected 13 points from their away games in the Ligue 2, after 3-4-6 (13 played).

Ajaccio aren't clicking offensively as they have gone 314 league minutes without a goal. M. Barreto was the last player to find the net.

Ajaccio might have something to prove in this game as they lost at home in their previous match. Clermont proved too strong as Ajaccio slumped to a 0-2 defeat in front of their own fans at Stade François Coty. It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Toulouse wasn't a success with a 0-3 loss.

It's a bit worrying for Ajaccio that their goalkeeper Benjamin Leroy made six saves in the Clermont game last time out, but still couldn't prevent the loss.
