Bastia vs Lorient
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 14th May 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Armand Cesari, Bastia.
A huge clash will take place at Bastia when they take on Lorient. Both clubs have had their personal struggles this season and it could all come to a head here. Bastia’s heavy 5-0 loss against PSG last weekend sent them to the bottom of the league and they are now 4 points from safety. Bottom line is if Bastia doesn’t win this match they will be relegated.
The good news for Bastia is that they perform much better at home and this was underlined when they last played here and got an excellent 1-0 win over Rennes.
Lorient drew with Angers last game which was a good result for Angers but for Lorient it kept them firmly down there and with a chance to still go down. They are in 17th place and two points clear of the drop but desperately need to get a win on the board. Recent form has been patchy.
