Team News

  • Bastia will be without Ilan due to a thigh injury, while Julien Sable and Yannick Cahuzac are both also unavailable.
  • Ajaccio will again be without Adrian Mutu, who has a calf injury, while Fousseni Diawara and Damien Tiberi are also unavailable.
  • David Oberhauser is out with a knee injury, Arnaud Maire has an ankle complaint and Benjamin Andre is still out with a thigh problem.

Prediction

  • Bastia and Ajaccio will do battle in the second Corsican derby of the season with both sides looking to earn a vital three points.
  • The two sides played out a fiery 0-0 draw earlier in the season but neither side will be satisfied with that with both needing a victory to boost their hopes of survival.
  • It is Ajaccio who go into the game in better form, their 3-1 defeat to Lille last weekend was their first since the winter break, while Bastia have won just once since the resumption of the season.
  • Both of these sides have attacks capable of scoring plenty of goals, but it is Ajaccio who possess the slightly better defence and they may be able to negotiate their way through a difficult contest and emerge triumphant.
