Bordeaux vs Lorient
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 5th November 2016,
Kick Off at 19:00 UK.
Venue: Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux.
If there is one match that is a home banker this weekend in Ligue 1 then surely it is Bordeaux to beat Lorient. The home side have been unspectacular this season with just 4 wins from 11 games. And their recent form has seen 4 draws in their last five matches. But they will face the team that is bottom of the league and besides Bordeaux have a pretty solid home record.
At home the team whose city produces some of the best red wines in the world, they have lost just 1 game all season. Although, again their matches have been dominated by draws. But in facing Lorient this is a great chance to get back the winning feeling within the squad.
Lorient is last and two points adrift of 19th place. They have won just 2 games all season and are without a victory for 4 matches. They blew a 2 goal lead to draw 2-2 against Montpellier last weekend. And that would have hit a team already low on confidence.

Bordeaux vs Lorient: Prediction
Bordeaux have just slipped into odds on territory price wise. But they still represent brilliant value especially if you pair them up in an accumulator. The home win looks solid and should be taken on.
Lorient can give the home side a battle but they have no stamina and will fade the more the game goes on.
