BASTIA – MONACO PREDICTION & PREVIEW
For Monaco, this trip to Bastia sounds the beginning of the great hostilities. Next Tuesday, Leonardo Jardim will face Etihad Stadium Manchester City in the first leg of the Champions League. A turning point in a season that could be fantastic. Fantastic, because the Monegasques prancing at the head of the League, with 3 units ahead of PSG, are qualified for the final of the League Cup and are still racing in the Coupe de France and thus in this Champions League. A dream journey that they savor. While waiting for the shock in Manchester, the Monegasques have quietly watched Parisians, Barcelonans or Madriders play this week their first round of these round of 16 of the Champions League. Soon, it will be their turn. But before, they have to prevail on the island of Beauty to arrive in the best conditions on the European scene.
Probability points for Bastia Monaco
The Monegasques scored at least twice in their last 3 visits to the island of Beauty: 0-2 in February 2014, 1-3 in October 2014 and 1-2 in December 2015.
In the first leg, the players of Leonardo Jardim had made their offensive power speak, crushing Bastia 5-0.

Bastia Monaco – Our prediction
Monaco is untenable offensively, with 75 goals scored in 25 days of L1. It’s better than all the biggest European teams. So for this move to Bastia, which has conceded 16 goals on the last 6 maths, we think that the Monegasques will once again get pleasure in front of the goal and register at least 2.
