Bastia vs Marseille by Peter
SC Bastia is prepared for a new season of Ligue 1, since 1 July they have a new coach, Claude Makélélé. They lost Wahbi Khazri (23 years, left wing) transferred to FC Girondins Bordeaux but they brought some good players like Mathieu Peybernes (23 years, centre back) transferred from FC Sochaux-Montbéliard, Floyd Ayité (25 years, left wing) transferred from Stade Reims, Alphonse Aréola (21 years, goalkeeper) loaned from Paris Saint-Germain and Guillaume Gillet (30 years, right-back) loaned from RSC Anderlecht. In the last friendly matches SC Bastia played has shown a good football, notable matches were the win against Genoa CFC with 1-0 and the 1-1 against Norwich City.
With a new coach, Marcelo Bielsa and some new good players Olympique Marseille want the title this years. They lost some good players like Mathieu Valbuena (29 years, attacking midfield) transferred to Dinamo Moscow, Jordan Ayew (22 years, centre forward) transferred to FC Lorient but they brought good players like Michy Batshuayi (20 years, centre forward) transferred from Standard Liège, Romain Alessandrini (25 years, left wing) transferred from Stade Rennais FC, Morgan Amalfitano (29 years, right wing) returned from the loan at West Bromwich Albion, Modou Sougou (29 years, right wing) returned from the loan at FC Évian Thonon Gaillard and Foued Kadir (30 years, attacking midfield) who also returned from the loan at Stade Rennais FC. In the friendly matches Olympique Marseille didn't lost any game, notable matches were, victories with 4-1 against Bayer 04 Leverkusen, 2-1 against SL Benfica, 3-1 against Chievo Verona.
SC Bastia objective in this year is avoiding relegation and on the other side Olympique Marseille want the title.
Olympique Marseille by far more valuable than SC Bastia.
Both teams have a new coach but Marcelo Bielsa is more experienced than Claude Makélélé who will have first official match as a coach tonight.
Definitely Marcelo Bielsa will want a win on his first official match at Olympique Marseille.
In my opinion Olympique Marseille will definitely win this match, my pick is Olympique Marseille at -1 Asian Handicap so if they will win this match with only 1-0 you will get your stake back.
