Nantes vs Bastia France Cup Free Predictions
Based on stats from the last 20 meetings, Nantes and Bastia matchup has been a tough duel. Out of previous twenty encounters, nine games ended in a draw, 6W for Nantes and 5W for Bastia. Our best predictions for this Cup fixture are as follows:
Nantes to win 11/20 (1.55)
We are backing Ligue 1 side, Nantes, to win this game. Antoine Kombouare’s men have been on a path of rediscovering themselves after surviving relegation last time. And while this matchup has never been easy for either side, playing at home against a Ligue 2 outfit should hand Nantes some advantage in this game.
No goals on both ends @ 3/4 (1.75)
Our second prediction for Nantes vs Bastia is fewer than three goals at full-time. This match pits two teams that have registered more draws than winnings between themselves. And given that the winner will progress to the semifinals of France Cup, a tough duel will likely yield few goals in this game.

Nantes vs Bastia France Cup Preview, Lineups and Team News
While the visitors will have all players available for this fixture, Nantes will be without a number of players for this France Cup quarterfinal. A notable Nantes absentee is central midfielder Cyprien who remains sidelined with COVID. Coulibaly, Castelleto and Traore have been away on international duty and will need some time to rest hence unlikely to feature in this game.
The winner in this match will face either Monaco or Amiens. Notably, Nantes head coach has never lost to Bastia’s Regis Brouard. The hosting manager boasts 1W and 3D, a record that further highlights that this match has never been easy. Given that nine draws were registered between these teams in the last twenty meetings, 6W and 5W for Bastia, we expect another show of might when these teams meet on February 10th 2022.
The last meeting was in 2017, a Ligue 1 meeting that ended 2-2. Moreover, there has not been a cup fixture between Nantes and Bastia in recent memory dating back to 1997.
