Caen and Bastia are both currently marooned in the relegation zone, with the former occupying the rock bottom. Both sides, apparently, have horrendous dilemma in consistency. Their attacking prowess compares pale to other sides, but it is in their defense that they are really challenged. Caen have never won a single game in their past eight matches although they were able to pick up two points from their draws against Monaco and Montpellier. Meanwhile, things look better for Bastia who have made successful displays in their two most recent matches: an impressive clean sheet against Rennes in Ligue 1 and an entertaining 3-2 thrashing at—coincidentally—Caen in the Coupe de la Ligue.


Football betting tip: Caen and Bastia’s brawl in the French knockout competition was a tight one. Expect their meeting in Ligue 1 to end in a stalemate.




Lorient vs. Nantes

Match Date: 21 December 2014 (local)

Match Venue: Stade du Moustoir


It has been a roller coaster ride for Lorient I Ligue 1. Whilst placing fifth in the opening week of the season, they went on to spend two consecutive weeks in the drop zone. Currently, they are relatively safe but a plummet back to the relegation zone remains a threat. Thus far, they have recorded good performances in the last five weeks. They were winners in three occasions, have drawn once, and were also beaten only once.

Nantes, meanwhile, moved up to the eighth spot after they  have won their bout against Bordeaux and finally broke their four-week streak of winless results. In addition, they trounced Metz at the Coupe de la Ligue on extra time, with the late goals from Audel and Bangoura deciding the result 4-2.


Sports betting tip: Lorient and Nantes will share the spoils.
