Today's Predictions for Bastia vs Lorient

Ligue 2 outfit Bastia host Ligue 1’s Lorient in the Coupe de France on Saturday. Can Bastia cause an upset on the island of Corsica? Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Bastia Double Chance

Last season, Bastia enjoyed a thrilling cup adventure when they made it all the way to the quarter finals of the Coupe de France and the second tier side will be eyeing up a similar run this time around. Bastia eliminated a couple of Ligue 1 outfits during their deep run in the competition 12 months ago and they could prove tricky opponents for Lorient on Saturday. Bastia are on a run of three straight victories on home soil and they could be worth considering in the double chance market at favourable prices this weekend.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams will believe they can win Saturday’s Coupe de France tie at the Stade Armand-Césari, and our second prediction forecasts action at both ends on the island of Corsica. Bastia have notched in six of their last seven competitive matches on home soil, while Lorient have rattled the net in 100% of their 11 away assignments in all competitions since August. Both teams have goal-scoring potential in their ranks, so expect that to be reflected in the final scoreline.
