Team News

  • Gael Angoula misses out for Bastia, after picking up a thigh strain against Montpellier.
  • Sylvain Marchal, Mattheiu Sans and Florian Marque are all expected to be absent, as are Yannick Cahuzac and Salim Moizini.
  • Bottom club Nancy have no new concerns going into the clash.
  • Fouad Rachid has a leg injury, while Jean Landry Bassilekin is out with an ankle problem.
  • Jeff Louis is absent with a groin injury, but otherwise Jean Fernandez has a full squad to choose from.

Prediction

  • Bastia meet Nancy aiming to bounce back from a hefty defeat at the hands of Montpellier last weekend.
  • The Corsicans had demonstrated renewed defensive stability in recent weeks, but they were soundly beaten at the Stade de la Mosson, and will need to recover quickly and pull further away from the danger of the relegation zone.
  • Nancy have been stranded at the foot of the table for much of the campaign, however of late they have proven to be a difficult side to beat, drawing all six of their last encounters.
  • Manager Jean Fernandez will be eager for his side to turn those draws into wins, and against a Bastia defence that is among the most fragile in the division, they will have few better opportunities.
