Bordeaux vs Angers
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 17th September 2016
Kick Off: 19:00 BST
Venue: Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux.
New Bordeaux coach Jocelyn Gourvennec has talked about making Bordeaux stronger at home which has evidently been the clubs biggest problem for the past few seasons. Start at home and then conquer their travels.
This weekend, Bordeaux take on tricky Angers with a hope of getting all three points. Bordeaux’s home form has already improved, with two wins from two games and they get the advantage after just 5 games to play in front of their home fans for a third time.
Angers have lost 3 of their 4 matches but the club did at least win their last game which was against Dijon 3-1. This was a much needed morale booster. But away from home Angers has yet to score a goal.

Just last April Angers won this fixture fairly comfortably with a 3-1 victory. Of the five recent matches played between the two, three of those have been 0-0 at half time. Apart from that the two sides have rarely met one another.
Bordeaux vs Angers: Prediction
Bordeaux have been impressive in recent weeks despatching the likes of Nantes and Lyon. Angers have just been themselves, lively but unspectacular, you have to give the travelling fans a lot of respect they always make noise wherever they go. Bordeaux have some great attacking options in the shape of Diego Rolan, Jeremy Menez and Malcom the 19 year old Brazilian midfielder has got off to a superb start. But everything just seems too perfect, Bordeaux to win 3 games in a row doesn’t sound like the team we know and we should be a little cautious even if Bordeaux are the favourites to win at the weekend.
