Ajaccio defender Yoann Poulard admits his side travel to Rennes tomorrow still fearing the drop.
The visitors lost 1-0 in their crunch relegation clash at second-bottom Troyes last time out when victory would have sealed their Ligue 1 status.
Instead Ajaccio sit four points above the drop zone with two games to go and Poulard knows survival is anything but assured.
``We are in danger,'' he said in L'Equipe. ``We will go to Rennes before hosting Nice. There is no guarantee that we will get some points.''
Tomorrow's match would appear to be their best chance of getting the win that would allow them to breathe easy, with mid-table Rennes having nothing left to play for after a disappointing campaign.
They have lost seven of their last eight games in the league to plummet down the table.
Final-day opponents Nice, in contrast, are very much in the hunt for a European place.
The club hierarchy is feeling twitchy too, with club president Alain Orsoni saying: ``The situation is worrying.''
Tomorrow's match will be an emotional occasion for Rennes coach Frederic Antonetti, who will take charge for the last time at home before stepping down in the summer.
And he admits he will leave the Stade de la Route de Lorient with a ``heavy heart''.
``You do not leave a club like this with a light heart,'' he said on the club website.
``I had a lot of fun in charge of Rennes. The club should have a coach for 10 years.''
Antonetti accepts the expectations of fans have been difficult to live up to.
``There is an impatience that is not always justified,'' he added.
