Bordeaux vs Nice
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 28th October 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Matmut Atlantique (Bordeaux).
Bordeaux are in 8th place and were in very solid form until they lost last weekend against Montpellier by 2-0. By that was an away game and they will be happy to be back at home. Here they have lost just 1 game all season and are unbeaten at home since the opening day of the season almost 3 months ago.
With a win here Bordeaux has the chance to jump up to 6th place and put themselves in contention for a European place. Bordeaux have had a big week as they had to travel to Russia to play Zenit St Petersburg in the Europa League and they lost 2-1, so they will be a little more fatigued than their opponents.
Nice’s form has deserted them once more and they come into this game with no wins in their last 3 matches. But they have had some very difficult games lately including playing PSG and Marseille. They will be looking to bounce back in this game.
Away from home they Nice actually have the 3rd best record in the league where they have only lost 1 game from 5 played. They have gained 8 points from the 15 on offer and most have ended in draws.

Bordeaux vs Nice: Prediction
History says this game will end in a draw, and whilst that is a risky bet for us to take on we will back the half time stage to end this way. We will also back the final correct score for small stakes.
This is a game that will be interesting, because Bordeaux has the quality to win this game but we must respect how well Nice have played on the road, and they will be trying everything to at least get a point in this game.
