Tip Reasoning

  • Reims have failed to score across their last 270 minutes of play.
  • Reims failed to win seven of their last ten home games.
  • Bastia knocked out top-flight opponents in the last round.
  • Bastia won the last two H2Hs without reply.

Could there be an upset on the cards?

Reims sit just five points above the drop zone in Ligue 1 and as such, this Coupe De France fixture could be seen as either a welcome distraction or an unnecessary excursion. Whichever way you look at it, it is a game that will not be seen as crucial to their success in the season.

Whatever happens, this could be tight. Three of Reims’ four prior round of 16 appearances in this competition needed extra time to settle affairs, while the other ended 1-0.

As for Bastia, just one of their seven prior appearances in the Coupe De France round of 16 saw a margin of more than a single goal, while the most recent such game needed penalties to settle it!

Bastia have momentum

While Bastia play at a lower level than Reims in the French footballing pyramid, they come into this with much better momentum, evidenced by their return of just one defeat across their last seven games.

The visitors look set for a mid table finish in the league, and may well throw the kitchen sink at this one in search of unlikely glory.

Considering the facts and history, I think it is worth taking on the top-flight hosts in the double chance market with Bastia or draw, this could easily go all the way but I am going for a narrow 1-0 victory for the visitors.
