Bastia vs Angers
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 15th October 2016
Kick-Off at 19:00 BST
Venue: Stade Armand Cesari (Bastia).
Bastia should be quite content to be in 11th place as this season has to be about finishing as realistically high up the table as they can. But they have many inconsistencies to their game which has and will hamper them this season.
At home though Bastia have been impressive where they have lost 1 match but gone their last three unbeaten and that loss was to PSG.
Angers three game winning run came to an end when they lost to Monaco and then drew against Marseilles. That was two difficult games and on both occasions they had a great chance to win those matches.
Angers are not travelling well where from four games they have lost 3 and have scored just two times.

Bastia vs Angers: Prediction
One team is solid at home the other shaky away and this match looks like a solid home win to us. Bastia will have enough quality. As always Angers will bring their die-hard fans with them and create a great atmosphere but there is nothing to suggest an away win here.
Bastia have grouped their squad together and have been preparing for this game for the past couple of days all in close camp. A good advantage over Angers who have to travel over 1,200km to get to this match. All this should play into our hands. Home win.
