Ajaccio settle for point after failing to break down 10-man Guingamp

GFC Ajaccio secured a precious point to keep them out of Ligue 1's bottom three following a 0-0 draw with 10-man Guingamp.
L'EAG made a horrible start when Lionel Mathis was sent off after just eight minutes for a nasty challenge that saw John Tshibumbu substituted off.
The hosts tried to make full use of the man advantage but the closest they came in the opening 45 minutes was a powerful Jacques Zoua effort from inside the area that cleared the crossbar.
And it was very much a similar scenario in the second half with both Khalid Boutaib and Issiaga Sylla, but the latter's close range header was gathered by Jonas Lossl while Sylla's effort from the angle of the area flew over the bar.
