Bordeaux vs Nimes
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 25th October 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Matmut Atlantique (Bordeaux).
Bordeaux are in 12th place with 9 points and whilst a win here at the weekend would take them into the top 10 the club have only won 1 of their last four matches.
The home side’s win came against bottom club Dijon and so was predictable and they really need to start racking up points at home. Last weekend they lost 3-1 to Marseille and they have earned just 5 points from their last possible 15.
Nimes have 8 points and so could take over Bordeaux with a win. A 3 game unbeaten streak ended last weekend for the club when they lost against PSG, the final score ending 4-0. But this is a defeat that Nimes should try and get over and accept that they lost to one of the best teams in Europe.
Despite their position Nimes have played some good football and that includes beating quality like Montpellier away from home, and they remain a dangerous team.
Bordeaux vs Nimes Head to Head
- Last season Bordeaux ran out 6-0 winners when at home.
- The teams have only played each other 3 times in recent years but there is a 100% record for over 2.5 goals.
Bordeaux vs Nimes: Prediction
Bordeaux will be the favourites to win this game but this could be much closer than we think, the club haven’t shown us much in the last few seasons that they are a team to take many risks on when it comes to winning games, so we will look into different markets.
One of those will be to back Bordeaux player Josh Maja who scored a hat trick against Nimes when the clubs last played. He will be up for this game, although double check that he will be starting this match. He is a very good price of 3.00 to score anytime and that seems good value to us.
Since there is a 100% record for 3 goals or more in this fixture we will also back that at a reasonable price.
Bordeaux vs Nimes Bet Tips:
Anytime goalscorer: Josh Maja of Bordeaux at 3.00 (2/1)
Over 2.5 goals at 2.10 (11/10).
