OL to stay in contact with PSG
Olympique Lyonnais coach Rémi Garde
Rémi Garde’s men are only separated from Paris on goal difference and are hoping to make the most of the slightest slip-up on the part of the leader, in order to steal the lead.
Lyon have just enjoyed an away victory and have only lost one championship game since end November (1-0 defeat in Paris).
Les Gones had no new signings during the winter exchange window which came to an end on Thursday evening, while they let go of four of their players - one of which was Brazilian Michel Bastos, who joined Schalke 04 on loan.
This away game in Corsica should be a tricky one for OL against an Ajaccio outfit who have strung together three consecutive draws, one of which was at the Parc des Princes.
But President Alain Orsoni’s protégés have not had a win since mid-December with their success against Reims, and are only lying two points above the first team threatened by relegation.
So Albert Emon and his troops must ensure a result at home against the co-leader.
