Bordeaux vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 23rd December 2020
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Matmut Atlantique.
Bordeaux claimed a good 2-0 win at Strasbourg at the weekend and that ended a 2 game losing streak for the club.
They have moved up to 12th place and a win at the weekend could see them climb into the top 10 positions. Recent form has been decent but they have still lost 2 games from their last four.
At home Bordeaux have won just 3 from 8 which isn’t the best record. They have also lost 2 from their last three with their latest home game ending in a 2-1 loss against Saint Etienne.
Reims got a very good 1-1 draw at Marseille at the weekend and one would believe that the side down in 17th place will come here with some confidence after that.
For Reims in what has been a difficult season so far their recent overall form is good with just 1 defeat in their last 4 games and they have a 2 points safety cushion from the bottom three.
Away from home Reims has just 1 victory with 45% of their games ending in draws.
Bordeaux vs Reims: Head to Head
- The last time the clubs played here in 2019 Reims won 1-0.

Bordeaux vs Reims: Prediction
Both clubs have lacked quality and consistency this season, although the home side are 8 points to the better of Reims.
Reims have a very good record at this stadium and have just come away from avoiding defeat at Marseille.
Backing the double chance on Reims seems like the best option here as so many of these fixtures have ended in draws, the value is good too. We do not expect to see many goals in what could turn out to be a very close duel.
Bordeaux vs Reims Betting Tips:
Double chance: Reims or draw at 1.67 (4/6)
Under 2.5 goals at 1.62 (8/13).
