Rennes continue their assault on the European places as they face Ajaccio in Ligue 1 this weekend.
Ajaccio currently sit 18th in Ligue 1 with six wins, five draws and twenty-four losses from thirty-five games this season.
Ajaccio, along with Troyes and Angers, have been woeful this season and have been relegated without a fight as they sit eleven points shy of safety with three games remaining.
They enter this game in awful form having failed to win any of their last ten matches, the most recent of which was a 5-0 trouncing away at PSG.
They've also failed to win any of their last five games on home soil having drawn two and lost three of those encounters.
Ajaccio will be desperate for this season to end but you would likely think they'd want to salvage some pride in these final games of the season.
Their recent form suggests not, however, as they look overwhelmingly likely to fall to another defeat here.
Rennes currently sit 6th in Ligue 1 with eighteen wins, five draws and twelve losses from thirty-five games this season.
Rennes have had another strong season in Ligue 1, if not quite as strong as last season, as they look to secure a spot in the European places in these final three games of the season.
They're just one point behind Lille in 5th so they're well placed to capitalise on any slip-ups, and two of their final three games are very favourable fixtures so they'll feel confident of securable a spot in the Europa Conference League qualifiers at least.
They're coming into this game in mixed form having won three and lost two of their last five games, the most recent of which was a thumping 4-0 win over Troyes.
Their form away from home is a big worry, though, with Rennes having lost their last three consecutive matches on the road.
They will, though, be thankful they're playing one of the worst teams in the league here and having already beaten Ajaccio 2-1 this season they should not be fearful of anything.
All signs points towards a Rennes win as they take another step towards a top five finish.
For our Ajaccio vs. Rennes prediction, we're going for a 2-0 win for the away side.
