Marseille vs Bastia: Preview and Predictions

Marseille vs SC Bastia-French Ligue 1 Match Preview 20th May 2017

Marseille vs Bastia
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 20th May, 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK Time
Venue: Stade Velodrome, Marseille.

Marseille will be the big favourites to win this game and they have the chance to end their season on a high with a win in front of their home fans. Marseille need the win to fend off Bordeaux and claim a 5th position.

The club are in very solid form where they are unbeaten for the last 10 games, although many of these have been draws. The good news is that Marseille are not used to losing and should be full of confidence for this game.

Bastia in 19th place on 34 points are virtually relegated. If they win here other results involving Lorient, Caen and Dijon could still see the club go down. A win is a must though for their chances of staying up.

Bastia are trying where they have recorded two wins from their last 3 matches, but their away form overall remains a worry.

Marseille vs Bastia: Prediction

Bastia will give their best, but they are up against a team with too much quality who still have something to play for. This should be a cast iron Marseille victory. To give some value to our bet we have gone with the following markets, get on ht/ft and have Marseille to dominate from the beginning of the match. Florian Thauvin has been in impressive form too for the home side and we expect him to get on the score sheet.
