AJACCIO, France — Only five minutes away from their fourth consecutive French Ligue 1 win, goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa and Ajaccio surrendered a goal as they settled for a 1-1 draw on Saturday.
Ajaccio (5-10-7, 22 points) could have made some more room between the team and the relegation zone. The club is is 15th place out of 20 teams, three points out of 18th place, which is the top of the zone. Nice, Auxerre and FC Sochaux-Montbeliard are tied with 29 points ahead.
Brazilian striker Eduardo converted a penalty kick in the 57th minute after defender Kevin Gomis took down Frederic Sammaritano in the penalty area.
Nice, however, came back as substitute Esmael Goncalves took advantage of an Ajaccio defensive error to beat Ochoa in the 84th minute.
