2014-2015 Ligue 1 Predictions: Week 18 (Part 3)

Montpellier- Week 18

Bastia vs. Rennes


Match Date: 13 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stade Armand Cesari



Bastia desperately needs a victory to salvage its Ligue 1 campaign this season. The club hit rock bottom after suffering a narrow defeat to Saint Etienne.  It was also their 3rd consecutive loss.


Although it’s  still too early to say that it will lose its top-flight league status soon, Bastia’s current performances readily show that their a top relegation candidate. They have only won thrice during the past seventeen (17) playing weeks  and thrives through even steven finishes.



Rennes will visit Armand Cesari with overflowing confidence despite its loss to Montpellier. The latter thrashed them with four (4) goals, but the said defeat was their first in their last six (6) matches. It doesn’t take a genius to see that the club has the overt edge over its opponent. The ranking doesn’t lie and with Rennes, occupying the 6th spot of the table, Bastia, will indeed, have a hard time beating their opponent.

Montpellier- Week 18


Montpellier vs. Lens


Match Date: 13 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Satde Auguste-Delaune



As mentioned, Montpellier just had a convincing win against Rennes and definitely, the squad will be taking all the positives from the said match to continue their winning streak. It can be remembered that Montpellier succumbed to Saint Etienne in its previous match, thus, making this recent win an incredible response from the mishaps they encountered before.



An even steven finish against Lille barely helped Lens move higher in the league table. As a matter of fact, it already dropped to the relegation zone. Although, their current status elicits tons of potential in helping them retain their Ligue 1 status, it seems that they would need to wait for a while since the online betting favorite, Montpellier is one heck of an opponent.
