Bastia - Montpellier

PICK: Montpellier AH -0 @1,917 PINNACLE 4/10

Match between 17th and 13th placed team in French Ligue 1. 


Bastia is facing lots of problems with injuries and suspensions. On they're last match they lost against Lyon with 2-1, but this result is far from reality. If it would be 4-0 it would be much closer to what we were able to see on the pitch. Suspended are Danic, Cahuzac and Leca, while Squillaci, Thievy Bifouma, Diallo, Djiku, Boulaya and El Katouri are all injured. 

Montpellier surprised Marseille with 3-1 win, but it is needed to be said that they were fantastic from counter-attacks and that Marseille was team in control of the match. They have poor run away, with 3L and 3D, so I think that it's the right time to take all three points. 

I expect that Bastia will try to play, because Montpellier is not a team who would like to be in total control of possession. I expect them to attack hardly in the middle as they did against OM and play quick counter-attacks. I think that this pick will be at least voided, because I don't believe that Montpellier can lose against this side of Bastia. They are already one of the poorest teams in league, so with that many missing players I don't believe that they are capable of winning against Montpellier.

FT: 1-1 void
