Bordeaux vs Reims
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 18th May 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Matmut Atlantique (Bordeaux).
Bordeaux have been the poorest team in Ligue 1 in the last month and have lost their last 5 games in a row coming into this match. They will be hoping that their final match at home this season can end in a win.
The good news is that they will be facing Reims who have also been poor in the last few weeks. Bordeaux have 38 points and in theory could still be relegated but with the way the fixtures have played out there is a less than 1% chance of this happening. They have had a poor season though and at home haev lost their last two games. Their last match ended in a close 1-0 loss at Lille.
Reims were dreaming of European football only six weeks ago but they haven’t won a game since then and have fallen to 9th place. Still they are 11 points clear of their hosts. The club are in poor form having lost 3 of their last 4 games and away from home they last lost against Caen in a match that ended 3-2.
Reims have problem on the road has been the amount of draws they have racked up which is 9, that means that 50% of their games away from home has ended in a draw.

Bordeaux vs Reims: Prediction
Both sides have been poor and so everything points to a draw. At the same time we are going to back Reims to get the win for small stakes.
Our reason is because they have a good record over Bordeaux but also the club really fought well in their loss against Caen, and it was the best Reims have played for some time.
They are fed up with losing and have been working extra with the coach, plus they travelled to Bordeaux a little earlier and are really prepared for this game.
