Bordeaux vs PSG
Coupe de la Ligue Semi-Final
Date: Tuesday, 24th January 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Matmut-Atlantique, Bordeaux.
Girondins Bordeaux and PSG lock horns in the first semi-final of the 2016/17 edition of Coupe de la Ligue on Tuesday evening at the Stade Matmut-Atlantique.
A 1-0 win against Toulouse on the weekend earned Bordeaux their first league win in 7 matches. They previous 6 Ligue 1 games has seen them drew 3 and loss 3. However, when combined with cup games, Bordeaux are unbeaten in their last 5 matches. This could be something that add a bit of confidence when they take the field against a strong PSG on Tuesday night.
PSG on the other hand are playing catch up with Monaco and Nice for Ligue 1 title since the start of this season. They are currently 3rd in the standings with 3 points separating them from league leaders Monaco. They are a team in form as they won their last 5 matches in all competitions with clean sheets.
Bordeaux vs PSG: Head-to-head stats
Despite having a better quality squad, PSG has failed to win in their last two trips to Matmut Atlantique. The latest one was a 1-1 draw, while the previous resulted in a 3-2 win for Bordeaux. However, PSG won in all of their 3 previous away matches before that.
If you look at the recent meetings across all venues, 4 of the last 5 matches have seen both teams scoring. And PSG has scored at least a goal in every match versus Bordeaux since 2013, a streak that stay at 11 matches.
Bordeaux vs PSG: Prediction
PSG are the heavy favourites here, but they have an important league fixture against Monaco in 5 day’s time. Therefore, Unai Emery could rest some key players which gives Bordeaux a slight advantage than usual in this game. But we believe PSG will eventually get their win, but this will be by the slightest margin.
