Reims vs Bastia – Ligue 1.
Stade Auguste Delaune II, Reims – 13 February, 19:00.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
Reims will be hosting Bastia this Saturday as part of Ligue 1 Week 26 and both teams should put up a decent fight. They were big rivals in France Ligue 2 in last couple of years and both fan bases are happy to continue these duels in the most elite French division. Reims could consider themselves very unlucky to have 8 injured players prior to this match, while Bastia’s coach F.Ciccolini can count on everyone. Despite that fact, Reims are still considered as big favorites to win with 8/10 odds. Last time these two rivals met Bastia were victorious at their Armand Cesari Stadium. Game ended 2 – 0 in their favor and F.Ayite and J.Romain were the ones to net goals.
After getting eliminated from Coupe de France in early stages, Reims could focus only to their Ligue 1 matches and they have done it pretty well. Last two weeks were especially exciting for them and their fans as they managed to beat Angers 2 – 1, followed with 2 – 0 victory against Caen. Potential victory in this match would probably reduce their chances of getting relegated back to Ligue 2 to minimum. Reims are currently on 16th position with 29 points.
If somehow Bastia could play all their Ligue 1 matches on their home ground, I have zero doubts that they would be great candidate for one of top 3 positions. Because that is not the case, they are lurking somewhere in the middle of the table and losing majority of their matches on the road. That was the case in their last three matches against PSG, Guingamp and Monaco. Recently there were rumors of Tottenham Hotspur being interested in their best player F.Ayite but those allegations were denied by club board.
