Angers vs SC Bastia Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

SC Bastia will look to get back to winning ways in Ligue 1 when they travel to the Stade Jean-Bouin to take on Angers on Saturday evening. Angers managed a hard-fought 1-0 home victory over Nancy last time out in Ligue 1 thanks to an early goal from Jonathan Bamba. On the flip side, SC Bastia were held to a 1-1 home draw by Monaco last weekend despite having took the lead in the 19th minute through Sadio Diallo. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Angers should have no problems in picking up all three points in this one as Bastia are one of the worst away teams in the league. On the flip side, Angers are unbeaten in their last four home fixtures across all competitions, having conceded just two goals in the process. In addition, Angers have won three of their last five home meetings with Bastia in all competitions.

Angers to win at 7/10

Both teams to score - No at 11/10

Angers Preview

Angers have enjoyed a decent run of form in the first two months of 2017, having lost just two of their nine games across all competitions. Angers are currently on a three-game unbeaten streak in Ligue 1, including a narrow 1-0 home win over Nancy last weekend. They have been incredibly strong at the back over the past three weeks, conceding just one goal in their last three league outings. Angers currently stand in 12th spot in the Ligue 1 table tied on 30 points with the 13th-placed Nantes, just three points clear of the drop zone. Angers aren’t a bad side, but they have been struggling to find the back of the net throughout this Ligue 1 campaign. They have only scored 22 goals in 26 league outings, which is one of the worst offensive records in the division. Famara Diedhiou has been Angers’ most dangerous player in front of goal so far this season, as the 24-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with six goals in his 21 league appearances. On home soil, Angers have been a tough nut to crack this season, having lost just three of their 14 home fixtures across all competitions. In addition, Angers have won three of their last five home meetings with Bastia across all competitions.

SC Bastia Preview

On the contrary, SC Bastia are winless in their last eight games across all competitions, losing five and drawing three in the process. However, they did well to secure a 1-1 home draw against Monaco last time out despite having had an inferior ball possession and fewer goal attempts than the Monegasques. The Corsicans still find themselves in a precarious situation as they are second from the bottom in the league table, four points behind safety. Similar to their Saturday’s opponents, Bastia have also struggled going forward throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, as they managed just 22 goals in 26 league fixtures this season. Despite this poor attacking record, Enzo Crivelli managed to help the team with seven goals and one assist in his just 17 league appearances. Their away form has also been a problem, as the Corsicans have only won two of their 13 competitive away games this season. They are currently on a four-game losing run on the road, conceding 14 goals and scoring just two. Furthermore, Bastia have only won one of their six visits to the Stade Jean-Bouin, having scored just five goals in the process.
