Nice - Bastia

PICK: Nice AH -0,75 @1,93 PINNACLE 5/10

1st against 16th team in Ligue 1. In my opinion bookmakers are underrating Nice here. I think that they won't stay on 1st place for a long time, but fact is that they are very very solid team and even without Balotelli, they are much better side then Bastia. 


Nice lost against Schalke with 2-0 and story in Euro league is finished. It was finished more or less already before the match in Gelsenkirchen and Favre started it with Plea, Sarr, Cyprien, Eysseric and Serri on the bench. Eysseric and Plea came in, but instead of Belhanda, Walter and Ricardo, so again three important players. What I wanted to say is that he was rotating strongly and already thinking about match against Bastia. Now they're focus is totally and only on Ligue 1 and I believe that they won't lose points against Bastia. 

Bastia is in poor form, losing 4 times and drawing twice in last 6 matches and even if defeats were only with goal difference, they were against Nantes, Angers, Lille and Lyon. Except Lyon all really poor teams this season while match against Olympique could (should!) finish with 5 goals difference in favour of Lyon. Except Saint-Maximin no one's performance is close to acceptable and with what they showed till now they are one of teams which will have hard time in battle for relegation. 

Nice will be in possession and everyone who watched they're matches saw how good they are with through balls and also with finishing. Bastia on the other side has the biggest problems exactly with this! They're positioning in defence is catastrophic and even if Nice is team who allows opponents to create chances I think that they will have too big problems with style of Favre's football, so my call here is on home team!

FT: 1-1
