Stade de Reims v Bastia: Preview

Bastia will be without striker Gianni Bruno for their trip to Reims on Saturday.

The Corsican outfit bounced back from the 4-0 drubbing against Paris St Germain with an impressive 1-0 win over Nice last weekend but Bruno was dismissed in the 58th minute, incurring a two-game suspension.

Manager Frederic Hantz was unhappy at the decision at the time and believes that Bastia get unfair treatment from officials.

``I think it is a dangerous mix made by some people because we wear the colours of Bastia,'' he told a press conference. ``I feel we are penalised more than others.

``My concern is the game and and the performance and it's hard for me to deal with these as a priority.

``I really regret the image that some want to give us.''

Hantz's men followed up their Ligue 1 win over Nice with a Coupe de la Ligue triumph over Ajaccio in midweek which sent them into the last 16 of the competition.

And, after seeing his team win three of their last four matches, the former Le Havre boss is eager that they continue their good form.

``We are in a good momentum,'' he added.

Reims have lost just one of their last 11 games and on Wednesday became the first team to defeat Monaco this season as they also advanced to the last 16 of the cup.

But central defender Anthony Weber does not want his team-mates getting carried away with their victory over Claudio Ranieri's men and wants them to maintain their focus.

``We will receive Bastia and must move on,'' he told L'Equipe.

``We must remain vigilant because sometimes we tend to blow up after a good result.''
