Ajaccio vs Rennes Lineups, Match Information, and Preview

Ajaccio

Whenever a team is relegated there is always some sort of unknown what is going to happen next. For Ajaccio, it means another stint in the Second Division. The scoring has been the main problem for this team throughout the season, and the lack of a proper striker was one of many reasons the team failed to stay in Ligue 1. Thomas Mangani is suspended for this week's match.

Possible lineup: Sollacaro, Youssouf, Avinel, Vidal, Diallo, Marchetti, N'Diaye, Coutadeur, Barreto, El Idrissy, Spadanuda.

Rennes

The visiting team has come to only a point away from Lille in a battle for the final place in Europe into next season and this week's opponent is the perfect one for Rennes at this moment. There could be a fair amount of changes within the team during the summer months, and every player on the team will look to make something out of the remaining three games of the season. Rennes has some serious injury issues for the match: Martin Terrier, Djed Spence, Christopher Wooh, Birger Meling, Desire Doue, Adrien Truffert, and Xeka are all out.

Possible lineup: Mandanda, Belocian, Theate, Omari, Traore, Santamaria, Gouiri, Majer, Bourigeaud, Doku, Toko Ekambi.

Player to Watch: Jeremy Doku

Another one of the ever-emerging young Belgian attacking players, Jeremy Doku is only 20 years old and has become a key figure for Rennes this season. He appeared in 26 league matches while scoring five goals and assisting a couple of times.
