Bastia vs Guingamp
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 24th September 2016
Kick Off: 19:00 BST
Venue: Stade Armand Cesari (Bastia).
Bastia will have a second chance in a row to try and get all three points at home after their underwhelming performance in mid-week when they could only draw 0-0 with Nancy.
That’s not to say that the home team didn’t have chances because they did but they just kept failing in the final third. Now they play the impressive Guingamp who will be a much tougher task to get through.
Bastia comes into this game in 12th place having secured 7 points from a possible 18. The worrying aspect is that they have only scored 2 goals at home so far.
Guingamp have done very well so far and have 11 points, and are just 3 points from the top spot. They have lost just 1 game from their first six matches.

Bastia vs Guingamp: Prediction
This is one of the more difficult game to predict this weekend because Guingamp have the better form and momentum and Bastia are simply unpredictable. However it’s hard not to think that the home team will under achieve again. They need wins at home to stabilize and Guingamp have had some dips lately on the road. The only worry is that Bastia has not scored for two games, but they may just start with three up front for this fixture.
