Marseille vs Bastia Prediction 20 May 2017

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Velodrome Stadium
Match date: 20.05.2017 at 20:00

On May 20 2017 at 20:00 in the last 38th game of the French Ligue 1 at the Velodrome Stadium the local Marseille are going to play against Bastia.

Marseille used to be one of the best football clubs of France and yet in the latest season they just had to stay in the middle of the standings. Anyway, they managed to combine a nice squad in the current championship and showed obvious progress as they are now among the five best teams of the national elite division with just one match left to play. At the moment Marseille are in the Europa League zone and yet they aren’t surely going to take part in that competition as they are just one point above Bordeaux who can outpace them in case they make a mistake. 

It seems to us that nobody expected Bastia to show such poor results in the current season. they only gained 34 points in their 37 matches played in the current season of the national elite division only let them take the 19th position in the standings, yet they still have chances to stay in the French Ligue 1. They are still in the race for the safe places due to the fact that they won their latest two games against Lorient and Rennes. Anyway, their chances to stay in the league are just miserable as they only gained 10 points in their previous 18 away matches.

Marseille have an advantage in the history of the latest games played between the teams. Marseille were the ones who won their game in the first round against Bastia 1:2 at the home pitch of Bastia. Both teams are extremely motivated, yet Marseille are played in at home and they are in the race for the places in the Euro Cups zone and they are definitely stronger than Bastia. These are the reasons why we think that the hosts are very likely to win in the upcoming game.
