Bordeaux vs Caen
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 24th September 2016
Kick Off: 19:00 BST
Venue: Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux (Bordeaux).
Bordeaux have been the most improved team of recent weeks winning 3 of their last 4 matches. They had a real test away to Metz who are having a great month and went there and won 3-0. Bordeaux just gave us a statement of intent and are now in 4th place in Ligue 1. They have the chance to break into the top three with a win against Caen.
The visitors have lost 3 games in a row coming into this game and have conceded 10 goals in those games (though 6 of them were to PSG). They lost away to Angers which wasn’t a huge surprise. Caen has the joint worst away record in the league with Dijon. They have lost all three games and scored just once.
Bordeaux vs Caen: Head to Head Stats
Caen has won the last two fixtures and last season in Bordeaux they won 4-1. In the last four games at home to Caen, Bordeaux have only won once. But this wasn’t always the case and Bordeaux have a good record over Caen. This fixture has a 50-50 chance for over or under goals.
Bordeaux vs Caen: Prediction
Bordeaux shocked us with a 1-0 loss at home to Angers last time out, they shouldn’t lose two games at home on the bounce. This is the chance for the home team to stop their bogey team right in their tracks.
Caen is in terrible form at the moment, just 1 goal in their last three games. Gaetan Laborde scored as a striker for Bordeaux away to Metz and now he can carry that momentum in this game and get us a goal at very decent prices.
