LIVE - AC Ajaccio-Lille: the Mastiffs recover after the debacle against PSG

Lille reacts after their Parisian slap!

Second success of the season for Lille, who won 1-3 on the pitch of promoted Ajaccio and did well after their thrashing against Paris. Thanks to the jewel of Yusuf Yazici and the goals of Jonathan Bamba and Tiago Djalo, LOSC made a great leap and stood at the foot of the podium for the rest of the weekend’s matches. The ACA put their heart into it, but it remains in 18th place.

The lack of Nouri in the box

We probably would have had a completely different ending to the match if Nouri hadn’t completely unscrewed his half-volley in the Lille box. It is probably over for the Corsicans who will not return.

Extra time

Minimum four minutes. François-Coty keeps pushing!

Penalty missed by David!!! (1-3)

David was quick to convert the penalty obtained but the Lille striker spread his right foot too wide. His powerful shot of him crashes into Leroy’s post!!

Penalty for LOSC!! (1-3)

Gómez had come to set fire to the Corsican area and Laci is surprised by his double contact. Lille gets hooked and falls, the penalty point is signaled by the referee!

Yellow card for striker Bayala

Very, too generous in his two consecutive innings, Bayala is sanctioned with a yellow card.

What if, what if

Will the ACA be able to do it and topple the Mastiffs in these final minutes? It seems a bit late but the whole stadium believes in it again!


The Corsicans finally score, cheer up!! In a new corner for ACA, the ball navigates dangerously in the Lille area. Nobody wants to take it out and finally it is Bayala who emerges to place a furious whim that lodges in a small net, Ajaccio comes back from 1-3!!!


Lille had scored exactly 3 goals in 5 of their last 6 games at Ajaccio in Ligue 1, including the most recent 4.

Djalo gets injured

Apparently, the third scorer of the game is touched on the grass and asks for the change. He is replaced by the young Yoro.

Botué hits wide! (0-3)

There was a lot of spontaneity in this attack from the young ACA participant. Botué takes advantage of a ball behind the defense to accelerate and hit hard without asking questions. The ball misses, but that’s what the Corsicans have been missing so far!

Change by LOSC

Exit of Ismaily, replaced by Zedadka. The usual right back occupies this time the left corridor of the defense.

The people of Lille are serene

Everything under control, LOSC is quietly heading towards the second success of its season. The Corsicans are playing to the maximum, but so far they have been too little dangerous to aspire to score 3 goals against Lille.

Double attack change for the ACA

Pantaloni plays his last cards: Laci and Moussiti-Oko enter the arena, Marchetti and Hamouma leave their place.

Yellow card for Mangani

Corsican spirits heat up and Mangani, due to a protest of encouragement, is warned of a yellow card.

Double change for the Mastiffs

From Yazici and Zhergova, Martin and Gudmundsson enter the field.


Terrible scenario for the ACA!! As they had just touched the crossbar, the Corsicans are surprised by the action that follows. An eccentric center is badly pushed back into the area and Leave it, full axis, asking no questions. The Lille defender takes over with a half volley that goes right through the opposing goalkeeper!!! It’s 0-3 for the Mastiffs.

The bar for the ACA!! (0-2)

Great opportunity for Corsicans in this corner of Marchetti! In the pack, Mayembo jumps higher than the others and picks up… from his shoulder a ball that bounces off Jardim’s bar!!

Triple change for the ACA

Youssouf replaces Alphonse, Nouri second Spadanuda, and Botué replaces El Idrissy.

LOSC usually passes through the right

Lille has space and tilts the game to the right, as is often the case. Zhergova is displaced by Yazici but her cross to David is too deep. Leroy takes advantage of it without concern.

Yellow card for Zhergova

Mr. Leonard pulls out the yellow for Zhergova, in protest.


Ajaccio have picked up just one point after three Ligue 1 games this season, their lowest total at this stage of the competition since 2004-05 (0 points).

The Corsican threat is getting closer

The Corsicans are playing higher up the pitch and are showing better streaks since they returned from the locker room. But Jardim’s many crosses to the surface are always returned by a Lille player.

Yellow card for Diakite

The versatile Diakité is sanctioned with the first yellow card of this match, for a foul in the opposite field.

Jardim has found colors

We hope that the Corsicans will be a little more precise in the second act to come and excite an attentive Lille rearguard. After taking 7 against PSG, Jardim is reassuring in his captures, like here on this high cross from Alphonse.

Francois-Coty is back! (0-2)

No changes to highlight at the break, we leave with the same on both sides.

It’s François-Coty time! (0-2)

Lille shows good things on AC Ajaccio’s pitch and returns to the locker room with a well-deserved two-goal lead. Yusuf Yazici, author of a pure gem (0-1, 17), then Jonathan Bamba before the break (0-2, 43), came to reward the intentions of the Mastiffs. The ACA is an opposing player but lacks precision to really worry Léo Jardim.

Extra time

An additional minute is announced by the fourth official.

Bamba remains decisive

This is Bamba’s second goal this season in Ligue 1, the one who scored his team’s only goal on Sunday against Paris.


Lille stands out thanks to Bamba!! Ismaily is unstoppable in the left lane and manages with some success to the edge of the surface. Serves Bamba who controls, turns and shoots with a perfect flat foot towards the small goal, 0-2 for LOSC!!!

The good return of Djalo

Hamouma is on the left flank and goes on a solo offensive. The former Stéphanois will throw himself into the defense of Lille but he rubs shoulders with the good return of Djalo, solid.


Ajaccio have won only one of their 9 home games against Lille in Ligue 1 (3 draws, 5 losses), the first being in December 1967 (2-1).

The attentive referee in front of David

Mr. Leonard intervenes in this duel in the Corsica area between David and his defender. The referee judges the attacker to be foul for coming to unbalance his rival, after this center by Zhergova.

The ACA is getting closer

Alphonse’s super center, shifted in the correct tempo to the right. His ball is dangerous for Idrissy, who only grazes the ball with his head, which then bounces off Fonte.

gomes a little clumsy

Bad play by Gomes in midfield on Spadanuda. The referee intervenes but is lenient with Lille.

The ACA wants the sanction

The François-Coty team asks for a penalty after this center by Alphonse was countered in his area by Ismaily. The action is outlined on video, but it is a corner that will continue, sanctioned the side would have been very severe.

Marchetti could have made another decision

Symbol of this first Ajacian half hour, Marchetti shows good things in the middle and is not lacking in momentum, as here in this full axis trailer. But the ACA lacks that technical precision to see the action through to the end.

mastiffs have wings

Lille’s game is fairly balanced spatially and attacks come from both sides. Zhergova and Bamba are highly sought after.

Yazici treats and rewards mastiffs

This is the first goal this season for Yazici in Ligue 1, and what a goal! The Turk comes to realize the good intentions of Lille.


What a great goal by Yazici to launch the Mastiffs!! After a sail repelled by the Corsican defense on the axis, the Turk connects a hat in front of Mayembo to turn it around and then a straight and forceful half volley that pierces Leroy, 0-1 for LOSC !!!

David did not apply! (0-0)

Magnificent action from Lille and delivery of Yazici’s perfect chest in this cross from Bamba. The ball is ideal for David who arrives thrown but the Canadian loses precision on the surface, and he launches a missile into the air!


This is the first meeting between Ajaccio and Lille in Ligue 1 since March 2, 2014 and a 3-2 win for Les Dogues at François-Coty. ACA have lost their last 7 top flight games against LOSC, conceding 20 goals in this series.

Goal denied to David! (0-0)

Lille thought they opened the scoring, but David, after scoring alone against the goalkeeper, was flagged for offside! In fact, the Canadian was in an illegal position at the start of Zhergova’s counterattack.

Ajaccio presses a little

The ACA has been putting a lot of pressure on for a few minutes, and it’s giving Lille’s rearguard problems. The hinge manages to move away a dangerous center from the left.

Strike Marchetti! (0-0)

First fuse lit in this match from outside the area by Marchetti. However, in a deadlock, the Corsican midfielder manages to launch a dry shot from the right that Jardim comes out of a good dive.

The ACA does not hide

The Corsicans seem willing to tease the mastiffs, but they lack precision in their transmissions at the moment.

Lille’s first imbalance

Launched on Diallo’s back, Zhergova places a first acceleration and manages to cross towards the surface. It’s a little too strong for David, who can’t unbalance him.

Let’s go to Francois-Coty! (0-0)

It was Lille, in black, who opened this opening match of matchday 4 of Ligue 1! The lawn is in a pretty catastrophic state, attacked by a fungus.

Kick-off is imminent!

The players are on the pitch of the François-Coty stadium, accompanied by the match official Thomas Leonard.

Absences on both sides

As against PSG on Sunday, LOSC will have to do without Rémy Cabella, injured, and Mohamed Bayo, still out after his night out. ACA’s newest recruit, Yoann Touzghar, is not yet available.

The 4-2-3-1 of the Mastiffs with two changes

The defeat against Paris inevitably left its mark. Therefore, it is logical that Paulo Fonseca has made decisions: the coach leaves his eleven Alexsandro, in great trouble against PSG, to replace him in the hinge with Tiago Djalo. Edon Zhegrova occupies the right flank in place of Gabriel Gudmundsson.

Olivier Pantaloni has made only one change from the team defeated in Rennes on Sunday: in this 4-4-2 draw, Yanis Cimignani gives up his starting job to Kevin Spadanuda as left midfielder.

A new great piece for the Corsican ascendant

Promoted to the top flight, AC Ajaccio had a rocky start to the Championship. Two defeats against the greats (Lyon and Rennes), a draw against Lens… and the Corsicans are still fighting hard tonight. Against the pesky Mastiffs, it’s not easy for Olivier Pantaloni’s men to consider starting the season.

Lille has to be forgiven

Five days after humiliating 1-7 at home against an overexcited PSG, LOSC returned to Ligue 1 wanting to erase that bad memory. With a win, a draw and a loss, Paulo Fonseca’s Mastiffs are blowing hot and cold at the start of the season.

The composition of LOSC

Jardim – Diakité, Fonte (cap.), Djalo, Ismaily – André, A. Gomes – Zhegrova, Yazici, Bamba – David.

The composition of AC Ajaccio

Leroy – Alphonse, González, Mayembo, Diallo – Bayala, Marchetti (ch.), Mangani, Spadanuda – El Idrissy, Hamouma.
