Bastia vs Nancy: Preview and Prediction

Bastia vs Nancy
French Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 21st September 2016
Kick Off: 18:00 BST
Venue: Stade Armand Cesari (Bastia).

Bastia are keeping up their pattern of winning one week and losing the next and the latest instalment happened when they went down 1-0 at St Etienne. At home Bastia have played two games, won 1 and lost 1 and the loss was to PSG so not too bad. They did impressively follow that up with a 2-1 win over Toulouse.

Nancy is trying to recover after a horrific start to the season which saw 3 straight losses. They have now gone two games unbeaten with a victory over Lorient and a draw away to Nantes. But sceptics are not buying this recent form, because Lorient and Nantes have also been poor this season.

Bastia vs Nancy: Prediction

A win for Bastia will push them into the top 10 and a slow start will quickly be forgotten. Nancy simply cannot be trusted to get a win in this game, not only is history against this but Nancy are yet to face and cause any trouble to a decent team like Bastia.

Bastia can be more trusted at home than on their travels and let’s dive in and take Bastia to control this game from the first whistle and make a positive impact early in the game.
