Bastia to Win

The guests have won the National league last season, the third rank of French football, to get back into Ligue 1 again. Meanwhile, Bastia finished the last season in this competition in the middle of the standings.

The last two most recent meetings between these two teams have both ended in wins for Bastia and we can see that being the case on Saturday as well. After all, they are the better team on paper and they will host the game.

Over 0.5 Total Goals in First Half

Even though we don’t expect to see many goals in this match since both teams averaged less than 2.50 goals per game in their respective leagues last season and their last two h2h duels have both gone under 2.5 total goals, we can see at least one goal being scored in the first half.

After all, that was the case in the last two meetings between Bastia and Laval since Bastia scored in the first half in both of them. We pretty much expect the same outcome from this game.

Both Teams to Score – No

We did not see both teams score in either of the two most recent h2h duels between Bastia and Laval since Laval failed to score a goal in both of them. So, we don’t see both teams scoring here either.

That being said, both teams scored in 50% of Bastia matches last season in Ligue 1, while the same is true for 53% of all games played by Laval in National last year.

Bastia vs Laval preview: Can the guests avoid defeat in their debut?

Bastia

Last season in Ligue 2 Bastia was pretty much average, ending the season in the twelfth place in the standings. The team was largely inconsistent and they were never really close to making the playoffs at least. We will see if Bastia can do better this season and get into the fight for one of the places that could lead to promotion.

Laval

Winning Championnat National last season secured Laval a place in Ligue 2 for this one and they will try to keep the same form going in the higher rank. Of course, as the newly-promoted team, they are one of the candidates for relegation, but Laval has the quality to avoid this faith with a bit of luck.
