Nancy vs Bastia
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 14th January, 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Marcel Picot, Nancy.
Nancy got a good win in the Coupe de France last weekend when they knocked out Nantes 2-0 away from home. It was a victory that the side will want to build on because they had a very good December. Coach Pablo Correa has been working on defence and the team have responded by conceding just 1 goal in their past 4 matches in all competitions.
Nancy has risen up to 13th position but will still be weary that they are only 3 points from the drop zone, but for sure the attitude and confidence around the club now is different and the second half of the season must be about stabilization.
Les Chardons have also been brilliant at home where they have won their last 4 matches and will fancy themselves in this duel with Bastia.
Bastia was destroyed in Paris when in the Coupe de France they lost 7-0 to PSG. This is certainly not the way to start 2017. They are just a point behind Nancy coming into this game and could go above them with a win. Away from home Bastia have won just 2 times all season.

Nancy vs Bastia: Prediction
This game is really Nancy’s to lose, they have great form at home and it’s difficult to see Bastia pick themselves up after their huge loss to PSG. Nancy should have more than enough to secure a professional victory.
