The information of the aceist group
Thanks to its success at the Vélodrome stadium last weekend againstOlympic Marseille (1-2), theAC Ajaccio no longer occupies the red lantern place in the championship standings League 1. Indeed, Oumar Gonzalez’s partners now appear at 18e overall rank, just one length behind AJ Auxerre, the first non-relegation team. Suffice to say that the competition is completely relaunched for the Acéistes who will move, tomorrow, on the lawn of the Stade de l’Aube to face Troyes (12e), 15 hours. This formation of theESTAC seems more on the ropes of the Corsican team. However, this is precisely the trap that Olivier Pantaloni wants his players to avoid. To achieve this, the latter relies on a group from whom the last success snatched not far from La Canebière could finally have triggered this famous click so much sought after in terms of realism. Especially since this week, the Bears obtained the reinforcement of Youcef Belaili. The latter arrived free and therefore took on the role of the offensive joker that Ajaccio recruiters were waiting for so much. « I don’t have to judge everything that happened before with him. I judge the player and I think he can bring us a lot in the attacking sector », said the coach, Olivier Pantaloni, about the new recruit of the ACA. If Belaïli is not yet 100% physically, he will be on the trip to Aube tomorrow. « He is not ready but depending on the face of the game, he could bring us his qualities in a short period of time », added his new coach. On the other hand, the white and red technical staff will once again have to do without the services of Touzghar, Hamouma, Mayembo and Laci, injured, but also Bayala and Diallo who will be suspended for this meeting.

The player to watch
The Guinean international striker is simply the best passer (2) and the best scorer (5) of this Trojan team. At 26, Mama Baldé is currently making the best start to the season of her career. Powerful and fast, the center-forward is often well placed and does not hesitate to carry out a very high pressing in order to disrupt the raises of his opponents. Baldé is also very comfortable on the counter-attack. He springs from his camp very quickly to bring solutions to his partners and generally concludes the opportunities which are offered to him. The ESTAC striker will undoubtedly be the player to watch in this meeting.
Bruno Irles (Troyes coach) : « I don’t know if we will be favorites on Sunday. Ajaccio have nevertheless won on their last two trips. Then, I have faced this Corsican team in the past and I can tell you that they have a hell of a defensive solidity « It’s very hard to pass! It doesn’t take much for him to turn a match in his favor. We will have to work to break his current good dynamic away. »
