Venue: Parc des Sports, Annecy

 

Quite surprisingly, Evian Thonon Gaillard is the top pick of sports betting site, 12BET in its match against Bastia. The former brags a better form, which makes them deserving of merits and recognition.

 

Evian occupies the 17th spot of the Ligue 1 table. It is just a notch away from the dreaded relegation zone and trails Bastia by 6 points. Nevertheless, it has managed to secure at least 3 wins in its last 6 matches. And those were not just ordinary wins. Evian got the best of stronger clubs such as Nantes, Guingamp and Monaco. Just recently, it earned another point when it forced a draw against Lorient.

 

Meanwhile, Bastia’s most recent performances have failed to meet expectations. It has more losses than wins during its last 6 matches. It was able to snatch a win, though when it went against Reims. But it was their first and only win within their last 6 encounters. It tried to seek redemption when it went against Sochaux, but a draw was the best that it could generate as of the moment.

 

More problems crop out for Bastia in the upcoming match as they will be playing in a foreign territory. The club’s away form has been suffering. As a matter of fact, Bastia had already lost 15 of its last 16 away matches.
Certainly, this duel means a lot for Evian and so is with Bastia. Yet, at present Evian seems to be the more prepared side.
