Nice vs Bastia
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 27th November 2016
Kick off at 16:00 UK Time
Venue: Allianz Riviera, Nice.
It’s not been a great week for Nice who have crashed out of the Europa League at the group stages and are not showing any of their form in Europe. However the Ligue 1 leaders might just see no more European football as a blessing in disguise as they try to win their first league title in nearly 60 years.
Nice got back to winning ways after losing their first match of the season to Caen a few weeks ago but they followed that up with a hard fought victory over St Etienne 1-0. Monaco and PSG are closing in and the pressure is on Nice to keep on winning games. At home they are unbeaten with six wins and one draw from seven games.
Bastia are in 16th place and have no wins in six matches stretching back to almost two months. Away from home they have lost 5 straight matches on the bounce with just one win on the road. The only minor consolation is that they have only conceded 8 goals and have been hard to break down.
Nice vs Bastia: Head to Head Stats
Bastia has a good record at Nice, they beat them here 2-0 last season. They also recorded a 1-0 win the year before, though Nice have got good results in Bastia too. The balance should be restored this season though. 70% of games have ended in fewer than 3 goals.
Nice vs Bastia: Prediction
The price for a home win is odds on but it still represents great value. Nice should have very little troubles to get the victory where at home they have been simply superb. A banker home win.
