We can talk about a waste. Three days after its first loss of the season against Guingamp (0-1) at the Charléty stadium, Paris FC lost once again to AC Ajaccio (1-0) in a late match (from the 5th day) at the top between two contenders for accession in L1. A frustrating defeat for the Parisians who missed a penalty in the second half by Lopez before losing at the very end of the game on a header from Gonzales. Paris FC, now 4th, is four lengths behind the Toulouse leader and 2 points less than its evening opponent. The PFC marathon, 4 matches in 11 days, will continue with meetings against Sochaux (Saturday 18th), Nîmes (Tuesday 21st) and Niort (Friday 24th).
🔚 After having obtained the best chances, Paris FC were punished at the end of the match.

What you must remember
The Parisian staff made four changes in the starting XI with the incumbents of Corsica from the Campanini team (the 1st since his arrival at the PFC in June 2020), Camara, Caddy and Alfarela. The Ajacciens start the meeting with their feet to the ground. Nouri infiltrates on the right side but his attempt passes flush with the post of Demarconnay. The Parisian doorman then brilliantly diverts an off-center free kick from Courtet (15th) on his crossbar. The capital club reacts at the end of the first act. Caddy rushes into the area before seeing his shot pushed back by Leroy (44th). The turning point of the match comes at the hour mark following a penalty resulting from a foul by Gonzales on Caddy in the box. But Julien Lopez's attempt is hijacked by Leroy (64th). After a shot from Courtet on the post,the Corsicans make the difference on a corner, the 5th time since the start of the season, following a header from Gonzales (1-0, 89th). Laura is sent off during extra time for a bad gesture on a Corsican player.
Man of the Match: Warren Caddy
For his first tenure after 3 substitutions in the last 3 games, Warren Caddy was the most agitated Parisian on the front of the attack.
The 24-year-old was back at AC Ajaccio after playing in U19 and then in the reserve team between 2015 and 2017. The former Sétois, who arrived at the PFC last season, came close to opening the scoring at the end act but his shot from a tight angle was deflected by Leroy.
In the second half, he caused a penalty following a ride in the Corsican area which could have resulted in the goal of the Parisian victory.
Caddy then gave way to Guilavogui.
The number: 1
The capital club recorded their first loss of the season away from home.
After 3 successes in Grenoble (0-4), Le Havre (1-2) and Quevilly (0-1), Thierry Laurey's men lost in Corsica.
But with 9 points out of 12, they remain within the lap times of a contender for L1.
