Bordeaux vs Nantes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 3rd November 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Matmut Atlantique.
Bordeaux come into this Sunday game against Nantes in 9th place and they need a win because they are slowly slipping down the league. They are in poor form having lost 3 of their last four matches and that includes losing back to back games recently. Last weekend they lost 3-0 at Lille.
Bordeaux have the 2nd to worst home record in the league where they have won 5 points from a possible 15 on offer. They have won just 1 home game so far this season which came against Metz in a 2-0 win. Saint Etienne and PSG have come here in the last two home games and beaten them and those games finished with the correct score line of 1-0.
Nantes were everyone’s team a few weeks ago, playing great football and challenging PSG for top place. They have started the season so well, is that about to unravel? The reason we ask this question is that the Loire club have lost their last two games in a row. They have been beaten by Metz and Monaco. Despite these defeats they are still in 2nd place but have now slipped 8 points behind PSG.
Bordeaux vs Nantes: Head to Head
- Last season Bordeaux won this game 3-0.
- Nantes have not beaten Bordeaux away in the league since 2013.
- In league games there is a 60% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Bordeaux vs Nantes: Prediction
Bordeaux have a poor record and Nantes have lost 60% of their away games so far and are not in good form. This means this could be quite a close game and we will call the draw. This is risky of course but offers decent value.
These teams are quite equal despite the league difference. It is hard for example to put our trust in Nantes when they struggle against Metz away lately, they will get better but it could take some time. We will also back for there to be more goals in the 2nd half.
