A quick look at the early game on Saturday in Ligue 1 which will see Paris Saint Germain travel to Bastia to take on a Bastia team that have been struggling of late. Bastia have lost four of their last five in all competitions but have actually been very good at home with three wins from four home games, their only loss coming to Nice. With a solid squad full of youth Bastia will look to Danic, Ayite and Fofana to lead the way against the Champions. This is a tough ask but this Bastia team have lots of youthful exuberance and you can be certain that a full house and the visit of the star studded PSG team will raise the performance levels of the home side.
PSG come into this game still unbeaten in the league and having just dropped four points in nine games. Remarkably for the Parisians they havent really had a full strength team as of yet with injuries plaging their early season games and now Matuidi suspended. The return though of Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovich brings the side as close to full strength as they have had over the last couple of weeks. PSG are led by the brilliance of Cavani, Lavezzi, Pastore, Di Maria and Ibrahimovich a quintet of players that could walk onto most teams on the planet. Laurent Blanc's side are really not tested in league games and they just seem to saunter through them.
This should be another PSG win and it's hard to go against the Champions in any way but having looked at the stats I was surprised to see that PSG are yet to lead at halftime in any away game they've played this season given that they have won four and drawn one away from home I am noticing a trend that we should try to take advantage of. Just a small bet here to see if we are on the right trend but taking Draw Halftime PSG Full time. It's available at 3/1 and looks a solid bet here.
