Team News

  • Bastia will again be without Yannick Cahuzac, who has a shoulder problem, while Wahbi Khazri and Sambou Yatabare, are both at the African Cup of Nations.
  • Rennes will be without Onyekachi Apam, who has a thigh problem, while Victor Montano has an ankle injury.
  • John Boye, John Mensah, Cheick Diarra and Jonathan Pitroipa are all in South Africa preparing for the African Cup of Nations.

Prediction

  • Bastia pulled further away from the drop zone with their win over Reims in their last outing, and they will hope to increase their points tally against Rennes.
  • However, that may be easier said than done, as the visitors travel to Corsica buoyed by their Coupe de la Ligue semi-final win over Montpellier in midweek.
  • Frederic Antonetti's men are in the top six of Ligue 1, and they will hope that they can challenge the top four and bounce back from their home defeat to Bordeaux last weekend.
  • Bastia will look to take advantage of Rennes' lack of defensive options, and with the likes of Florian Thauvin and Ilan performing well in their last encounter, a bump back down to earth may be on the horizon for the visitors.
