Bordeaux vs Amiens
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 23rd December 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Matmut Atlantique (Bordeaux).
There is just one Ligue 1 game on Sunday which will wrap up the French football season for 2018, and we will see Bordeaux take on Amiens.
Bordeaux are in 12th place but they have a couple of games extra to play with the teams around them, win those and it is possible that the club could climb as high as the top 6, so a lot can still change.
The home side come into this game unbeaten in their last 5 matches but the problem has been too many draws holding the club back. For example they have drawn 4 of the five games. They did, however, win their last match in a thrilling 3-2 victory over Saint Etienne. They are also unbeaten at home in their last 3 games.
Amiens look set for a relegation battle this season as they are in 18th place. They did win their last game which was against bottom club Guingamp and that ended a losing streak of 3 matches in a row, but the club have been really poor and will start as rank outsiders to win this match.
Though Amiens away record is very poor they have won 2 out of their last 3 games on the road, although Bordeaux will be their toughest fixture. They have scored just 4 goals away from home which together with Guingamp is the worst record in the league.
Bordeaux vs Amiens: Head to Head
- Last season Bordeaux won this fixture 3-2.
- The teams have only played each other in recent years two times with one win a piece.
Bordeaux vs Amiens: Prediction
Bordeaux have not been convincing enough in recent weeks and have really struggled for wins. Amiens are the outsiders but have given the home team troubles in the past and have improved in recent weeks. The games this weekend in France could all go on form but there are always some surprises and Amiens have put in extra work this week, where their game plan away from home is to soak up pressure and frustrate their opponents and they may be able to catch Bordeaux out. For great value we are going for the shock away win.
