AC Ajaccio:

AC Ajaccio returns to Ligue 1 after an eight-year break, during which it played only in the second league. Last season, AC Ajaccio finished in 2nd place, obtaining direct promotion, but the season was not easy at all, the battle for second place being very tight, as proof that today’s hosts had only one point ahead of 3rd place. One thing it is also worth appreciating the fact that coach Olivier Pantaloni was retained, he led the team in all the eight years that the team played in Ligue 2. In the five friendly matches played this summer, AC Ajaccio recorded two victories, two defeats and one draw.
