Bordeaux vs Lorient
Coupe de France
Date: Tuesday, 28th February, 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK Time
Venue: Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux.
Bordeaux come into this game in a good moment having recorded two wins in a row in Ligue 1 that has boosted their chances of a European place. They are also scoring goals- they have six in their past two games and the mood is very good within the camp.
Apart from a 3-0 loss to PSG, Bordeaux has been very solid at home and haven’t lost there for almost three months.
Lorient fought hard against Rennes at the weekend but still lost 1-0 keeping them bottom of the league. It’s looking inevitable that they will be playing Ligue 2 football next season. They are now six points from safety. The season offers no rest bite with a difficult mid-week trip to Bordeaux for a cup competition that they realistically have little chance of winning even if they do shock everyone with victory here.
Goals are a major problem too for the away side where they have scored just one since February 8th. This game by all accounts looks like being an uphill struggle for them from the start.

Bordeaux vs Lorient: Prediction
Whilst it’s true that the underdogs usually rise to the occasion in cup matches, this match seems a step too far for Lorient. Bordeaux are not only in good form but scoring goals, one note of caution should be to check team sheets before placing a bet.
