Bastia - Marseille

PICK: Marseille AH -0,25 @2,00 PINNACLE 4/10

Match between 12th and 6th team of French Ligue 1 will be played at 20:50 on Stade Armand Césari in Furiani.


I said million times that Bastia didn't convince me so far. They won last two matches - first against Dijon at home, and then away in Rennes. As I wrote in post match analysis there was nothing really special about them and I expect that they will have big problems with Marseille. They won't be able to count on player in form recently - Danic, who is suspended, while also main attacker Crivelli's is not included in squad.

OM is coming to match after 3 wins in row, and as said in one of my analysis this last matches of this year were with easier opponents, and with win over Bastia they will be able to hold good position, maybe even jumping for 1 place higher. Garcia started with good work in OM. Players are showing much more then they did before, and it looks that better times are coming for the team from Velodrome in near future. 

I am not sure about possession, but I am pretty sure that with individuals as Thauvin and Gomis are, OM will create good chances to score. Possession could depend on result here, but anyway I think that it won't be too much on any side. If it will be on any, then it will be on OM's side. Even if Crivelli would play, I would be on OM's side as they are simply better in build up, they're playing more compact football, with less mistakes. Rudi is not allowing through balls throw his defence, and I think that Bastia will try more or less with shots from distance, which won't be enough.

FT: 1-2
