'No pryro, no party' is a common thought linked with away fans and the supporters of Bastia, the Ligue 1 club, showed they completely agree with the ideology.

Bastia face AS Monaco on Wednesday in the semi-final of the French League Cup with the victors facing either Paris Saint-Germain or Lille in the final.

Despite French football being a lot slower than we are used to in the Premier League, the Bastia fans are obviously excited about their cup tie.

Due to the magnitude of the game, the top-flight outfit had plenty of fans travelling to Monaco to witness the clash.

The Blues currently sit 16th in Ligue 1 whereas Monaco sit fifth finely poised to push for a top four spot.

Monaco have notoriously spent millions over recent seasons in order to make a title push, signing the likes of Joao Moutinho, Dimitar Berbatov and Radamel Falcao - who is on loan at Manchester United.

The encounter should be an exciting and intriguing affair. No doubt the travelling Bastia fans will make their voices heard.
