PSG stand at the top of the table and they are the main candidate for the title. If they fail to win the trophy in Ligue 1 it would be the big surprise. They have 19 points more than second team on the table – Monaco, so they can more focus on the knockout phase of the UEFA Champions League. PSG are the only team in Ligue 1 without defeat this season. Actually, their only defeat this season was in the group phase of Champions League when Real Madrid beat them 1-0 at Santiago Bernabeu. Without any doubt they are big favorites to take another three points against Bastia.
Bastia don’t play impressive this season and in the middle of the season they are standing near the relegation zone. They know that will hard for them to make positive result against the best team in France, but they have nothing to lose and they will do their best in order to stay unbeaten or at least go back home with the minimal defeat. Visitors are typical home side where they won the most of the points this season. On away ground they are playing very poor. Bastia are still without win on away ground and they have managed to score only 5 goals on their 9 away matches this season in Ligue 1.
