The big news for Bordeaux is happening off of the pitch where manager Gus Poyet has been suspended by the club for criticising the board after the sale of Gaetan Laborde to Montpellier.

For now only an assistant will be in charge as the club prepare to take on Monaco at home. Poyet’s concerns have come because the club are struggling for goals which Laborde was providing last season and they have also lost their openings games coming against both Strasbourg and Toulouse. They travelled to Belgium on Thursday for the Europa League and drew 0-0 with Gent in the first leg of the play offs.

Monaco opened up their Ligue 1 season in style with a very good 3-1 win away to Nantes. But they were frustrated in their next match at home against Lille where they could only draw 0-0. Radamel Falcao missed a penalty and Monaco really need to pick up some points in this game.

Bordeaux vs Monaco: Head to Head

  • Home or away Monaco have won the last 4 fixtures against Bordeaux.
  • Monaco won this match last season 2-0.
  • There is a 60% chance that both teams will score.

Bordeaux vs Monaco: Prediction

We think Monaco can take advantage of Bordeaux’s uncertain situation plus they have the better squad. If Henry does get the job the club will wait until after this game to announce it.

Monaco were disappointed after the Lille result and also Falcao will be determined to make up for his penalty miss. We expect Monaco to win as Bordeaux will be in a transition period and thinking of the very important game coming up next week, the 2nd leg match v Gent to get into the Europa League.
