Bastia vs PSG by DamirJ
Bastia started the season very well - with two victories over Sochaux and Reims, but as the season progresses, they are starting to show their weaker face. In next three matches they have three consecutive losses and are finding themselves in the middle of a table, with not that great atmosphere inside the team.
With three consecutive losses, fairytale is finished for them and they are into reality now, knowing that the rest of the season won't be any easier for them and that European Cup spots were just a dream for them in previous weeks. Losses from Rennes and Evian on the road and St Etienne at home, made them starting worrying about their future, but at the same time all alarms are on in the team and they know that they must perform much better, starting from this match. Often enough in previous three matches, they have taken the offensive approach in the game, but conceded rather easy goals. Everyone in Bastia squad is ready for this clash, while the stadium is already sold-out for tonight's game.
PSG, on the other side, have started the season with couple of draws and not that stylish play, which is normal for a team that changed a lot of players during Summer, but the things are starting to look better and better for them, as the season progresses.
They are coming from a great performance in mid-week when they defeated 4:1 Dynamo Kiev in the first round of Champions League group stage, making a perfect start in another competition and surely boasting their morale a lot. They were already three goals up till thirty second minute, led by in-form Ibrahimovic who already scored five goals in Championnat till now. However, the guests will be without their striker Lavezzi, while midfielders Motta and Pastore are doubtful, but the guests have great rotation and should miss either of players a lot.
Bastia showed that they have pretty good attack for a team that is newly promoted, while their defense is more than unstable and one of the weaker points in the team - very normal for a team that reached promotion from the League 2 few months ago too. PSG, on the other side has terrific attack, but still not that fluent and they are winning a bit on a individual quality while the defensive errors still do exist. Under such circumstances, over goals should be value bet in next weeks to come when speaking about PSG and so it is in this game.
