Bordeaux vs Nimes
France- Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 16th September 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Matmut Atlantique (Bordeaux).
Ricardo Gomes was named as Bordeaux’s new manager after Gus Poyet was sacked for questioning the Bordeaux owners over transfers.
Gomes is known well to the club as he coached their between 2005 to 2007 and won a French League Cup in his time. The Brazilian had a serious problem with his health at the beginning of this decade and so it is very nice to see him back coaching once again in one of Europe’s strongest leagues.
As for Bordeaux there will be a lot of work to be done by Gomes as he finds his team in 19th place as they have lost 3 of their 4 games played so far.
Whilst they did lose at home to Strasbourg they also surprised a few people with a win over Monaco a few weeks ago, and the club will be looking to gain the majority of their points at home.
Nimes are one of the most exciting teams in the league- newly promoted from Ligue 2 they simply are fearless and very attack minded. They have already scored 9 goals this season, the problem is they tend to leave themselves open at the back and have also conceded 9.
Highlights have already included beating Marseille and Angers and they went toe to toe with PSG, coming back from 2-0 down only to lose 4-2, but their supporters are certainly getting their money worth and the team will be a genuine threat in this game.

Bordeaux vs Nimes Prediction
Bordeaux will start bright with a new manager and the players will want to impress. But we think that there will be lots of space in this game and we predict many goals to follow.
Our main bet will be to see both teams to score and also we think there could easily be at least 4 goals. We should be entertained to an enthralling game of football that will be played like a traditional cup tie.
Bordeaux vs Nimes Betting Tips
