Marnaval vs Bastia Betting Picks and Odds

French league system minnows are going to battle against former Coupe de France winners.

Bastia to Win

Marnaval doesn't have much experience playing in the Cup competitions, this is an amateur side that is playing for honor and their communities benefit. Bastia will be looking to take advantage of their higher status, and the fact that they are more than relevant in France football terms.

Under 2.5 Goals

Bastia hasn't scored many goals this season in Ligue 2, and their goal-scoring problems were confirmed in the first round of the Cup when they barely beat another amateur side Prix les Mezieres. They could find themselves in a similar situation playing away at Marnaval.

Bastia aiming to bolster their season

Marnaval has only one relevant result in the Cup competition, and that happened three weeks ago when they beat Armentieres in the opening round of the French Cup. This is a club from a small commune in the North of France. They play their football in the amateur leagues. They don't have much experience participating in this kind of competition, and they will relish the opportunity to lock horns with a team that plays far beyond their reach, in the Second Division of French football.

Marnaval predicted 11: Fouilloux, M. Gerard, Locatelli, Pecheux, Szczerbicki, Leroy, Lepoix, Arnaud, A. Gerard, And. Gerard, Zorgniotti.

Bastia is a former French Cup champion, but those days passed a long time ago. It was in 1981 when they won their biggest trophy. Once upon a time, Bastia was an established club in the French top division, but the last decade or so has been tough. Currently, they are playing in Ligue 2, and they are struggling to keep themselves out of the relegation zone. They are 18th with three points security cushion in front of the teams beyond savior at this point of the season. Bastia has a lot of problems scoring goals, they did it only 14 times this season in 15 games which is not something that will satisfy their fans or their management. In Ligue 2 they are without a win for the past five matches, with two straight losses. In those five games, they scored only a couple of goals. Even when it comes to their attackers, there is only one that scored more than two goals, Frank Magri. It's been a tough season for manager Regis Brouard who is looking for some necessary break to rest his team and prepare them for what is coming next. That break came at the best possible time with the World Cup.

Bastia's predicted 11: Placide, Sainati, Ndiaye, Guidi, Van Den Kerkhof, Ducrocq, Kaiboue, Tavares, Camara, Salles Lamonge, Alfarela.

Team News:

Marnaval: No news to report.
