Kick-off at 20.05 UK/ 21.05 CET
Venue: Matmut Atlantique (Bordeaux).
The Girondins suffered a surprising defeat against Le Havre, at home, in the Round of 64 of the Coupe de France. The match really was a wakeup call for the Bordeaux team and the management for taking their opponents lightly.
The Club with the Chevron has a chance to settle scores in the form of League Cup Quarter Finals. And this time, it really will be game on.
Le Havre gave their everything on the pitch last day and deservedly got the win. The players returned home with their heads held high. Despite being a Ligue 2 team, and on the road against a side from the first division, the Dean Club played without fear.

Bordeaux vs Le Havre Prediction
The match will be fiercely contested, and Les Girondins will be licking their wounds to get their vengeance. The hosts won’t repeat the mistake of resting key players or taking the match at a slow pace. Right from the beginning, Bordeaux will look for the win.
But things won’t be that easy for them either. The Sky-and-Navy is high in confidence and will believe they can pull it off once more. They will come guns blazing, and if they win, it will be a tale to remember for years to come. Even if they don’t, if they manage to bring the fights of their lives to the Matmut Atlantique, their fans will be pleased.
Expect a very narrow victory for Bordeaux in this extremely competitive match. I go for a win for Bordeaux, a 1-0 win, owing to their experience in the top division, and their home advantage. Still, the Le Havre defense won’t be breached more than once. H2h games between these teams have been following a trend of having only one team on the scoresheet. The streak will be extended.
