The 2022-23 Ligue 1 season rolls on this weekend as Lille make the trip to face newly promoted Ajaccio at Stade Francois Coty. The former champions suffered an all-timer of a loss to a rampant PSG last time out, and have been left to lick their wounds.

It has been a tough return to the top-flight for Ajaccio so far, with just one point gleaned from their first three games.

They will have to pick up a win somewhere along the way sooner rather than later if they hope to avoid being drawn into an expanded relegation battle in Ligue 1 this term.

Predicted Ajaccio starting XI: Leroy; Alphonse, Vidal, Gonzalez, Diallo; Bayala, Mangani, Marchetti, Spadanuda; Hamouma, Moussiti-Oko.

There can't have been many more humiliations like the one Lille suffered at the hands of old boss Christophe Galtier and his Paris Saint-Germain side last time out, as they shipped seven goals against the champions.

Surely, there will be a response this weekend - but quite how it will manifest after such a drubbing is anyone's guess.

Predicted Lille starting XI: Jardim; Zedadka, Fonte, Alexsandro, Gudmundsson; Andre, Gomes; David, Cabella, Bamba; Bayo.
