Bastia are currently sitting in the 19th place in the league table. They have 22 points from 5 wins, 7 draws and 11 losses. The team scored 20 goals and conceded 28 since the start of the season.
Alexander Dj Iku will miss the match after being sent off against Montpellier; his place as a makeshift left back will likely be taken by Abdoulaye Keita.
