Marseille look to put the pressure on Monaco on Saturday as they take on Bastia at the Stade Velodrome. In the last round of ligue 1 fixtures for the year Marseille know that anything other than a win will leave them in Europa league football next season but a win for Marseille coupled with Monaco failing to beat Lorient will leave Marseille in the Champions League. Marseille led by Andre Ayew and Gignac will look to put the pressure on early. Marseille are in this position though due to their own poor form after Christmas , the last three games Marseille have been excellent though and Ayew and Gignac have been exceptional.
Bastia are stuck in the midst of midtable mediocrity and have struggled at times this season but with an array of attacking talent Bastia are a tough team to beat and Ayrite, Sio and Brandao pose a real threat up front. Bastia have also finished the season well with three wins in their last four. While Bastia obviously have nothing on the line here they could finish in the top half with a win.
For me this is going to come down to who wants it more and I have been super impressed with Marseille in recent weeks, I think they get the win here in what should be a high scoring game. I'm going to take the overs as there is far more value than taking Marseille to win straight up.
