AC Ajaccio vs Toulouse Soccer Prediction
Nineteen clubs are already certain to participate in the next edition of Ligue 1, while the last available place will be assigned to the team that will emerge victorious from a play-off full of interesting ideas, whose first match will be played in the next hours.
AC Ajaccio won the Ligue 2 playoffs, which ended two days later than expected. Having finished the regular season in third place, the team coached by Olivier Pants had the opportunity not to dispute the inaugural round of the postseason and entered the scene directly in the next, where he hosted the Le Havre, which had just eliminated the Brest.
The conclusive challenge of the second series French play-offs was originally scheduled for Friday, May 18, but was postponed because some AC Ajaccio fans threw stones and firecrackers at the Le Havre coach, generating an extreme situation tension and causing the slight injury of a policeman.
The match was recovered last Sunday and proved to be full of emotions. After the 1-1 of regular time, the Le Havre has unlocked the situation and now seemed close to the passage of the round, but the hosts have rebalanced the score at the fifth minute of extra time and then they are imposed on penalties. Both teams closed the match in nine men.
Despite having obtained the qualification, AC Ajaccio can not be very calm, because it has consumed a lot of energy and will have to deal with the disqualification of important players. Not only that: it will also be forced to play behind closed doors and in the neutral field the forward challenge of the promotion-relegation play-off. The Disciplinary Committee of the Ligue de Football Professionnel, in fact, decided to punish in this way the incidents that led to the postponement of the match against Le Havre. The training run will move to the Stade de la Mosson in Montpellier to play the first round against Toulouse, club placed in the third last place in Ligue 1.
The team led by Mickaël Debève could take advantage of the difficulties of their opponents, whose tiredness will probably emerge with the passing of minutes.
The return match is scheduled for next Sunday, starting at 21.
