Bordeaux vs Dijon
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 19th January 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Matmut Atlantique (Bordeaux).
Bordeaux are having a very average season and have dropped too many points to be considered as a team who could finish in a European place. However they did win their last game in midweek and it came against Angers in a 2-1 win.
This was only the club’s 4th away win of the season and their first for over 3 months. It puts the club on 25 points and if they win this game and other results around them go their way they could be heading very near the top 10.
Whilst Bordeaux remains unpredictable their home form is decent with just 2 losses all season and they have gone their last 4 games without defeat, although three of those ended in draws.
Dijon come into this game in 18th place with no wins in their last 3 games. However if they were to claim a victory at the weekend they would escape the bottom three, as it is so close near there.
The club have lost 50% of their games away form home and have not won on the road for almost four months. They have not scored away from home in the league for 7 weeks.

Bordeaux vs Dijon: Prediction
There really isn’t too much between the teams even if the league table suggest that there is.
Still we believe that the home side will have too much for Dijon and can score at least 2 goals, which should be too much for them.
Kalu for Bordeaux has found form and has scored a few goals in the last matches and should be followed to score another at the weekend.
FC Girondins de Bordeaux will have more of the possession and we should expect them to have plenty of chances at home to Dijon.
