On May 26, Stade Armand Cesari (Bastia) will host the match of the 37th round of the French Ligue 2, in which Bastia will compete with Le Havre. The battle will start at 20:45 CET.
The team has been through a lot in recent years. It was promoted to the Ligue 1 one more time and reached the final of the Coupe de France, but then there were financial sanctions, which eventually led to bankruptcy. The club had to start everything from the fifth, amateur level, in Corsica – there was only the enthusiasm of the fans, and it turned out great. The club played in the Ligue 2 and took the 12th place already in the previous season there. Nowadays, “Les Bleus” have been added in the game in a pretty noticeable way. They can’t get into the top three, but there are still chances to lead the rest of the peloton, the only question is what it will give in terms of tournament prospects. The previous round stands apart: Pau was defeated in the away match with a rare, if to speak about football, 6-2 score – this is more typical for tennis.
The club was periodically promoted to the Ligue 1, but, firstly, it was not able to gain a continuous foothold there. Secondly, it was impossible to break into the elite division of the country again after 2008/2009. Speaking about the previous season, “the Sky-and-Navy” demonstrated familiar statistics at the level of the middle peasants – they finished in the 8th place. Nowadays, being under the rule of a new mentor, Luka Elsner, the team has added in the quality of the game. Currently, this is the undisputed leader of the Ligue 2, which can actually prepare for the long-awaited return to the elite division. It seems that the players have believed in the higher mentioned fact – they lost to Valenciennes at its home arena without a single scored goal – 0-2. It is reasonable to mention that the opponent is fighting for survival, and even now, after a sensational success, it is above the relegation zone. Le Havre is worth remembering that it still needs to take the victory – why not achieve this aim now?
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Speaking about the previous season, Bastia got 4 points in full-time matches. The current draw is characterized by the defeat made by Le Havre at the home arena with a 3-0 score.
Bookmakers consider the opponents to be almost equal. Still, Le Havre should be rehabilitated for the failure in the previous round – thus, we bet on the victory of the guests with “a 0 goal handicap” (odd: 1.99).
