Bordeaux vs Strasbourg
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 4 April 2021
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Matmut Atlantique.
The Racers have had to endure a tough schedule lately, and for the reason, they have dropped quite some points in the last several weeks.
And as a result, they are currently under the threat of getting relegated, especially with just eight match-days remaining till the end of the season. In fact, they have a surplus of just four points over the relegation cut-off.
It goes without saying that they are under immense pressure, and are in dire need of points.
Going on, just as if their prayers were heard, they are pitted against one of the worst teams in the whole league – the Girondins. Not only are Jean-Louis Gasset’s men on a long losing streak, but they are also conceding goals in huge numbers lately.
Even at home, they have been struggling to perform, and it’s been quite some time since they have delivered a quality offensive performance.
On top of that, they also have an inferior h2h record against this opponent over the years.
Bordeaux vs Strasbourg: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Thierry Laurey’s men had recorded wins in four of the past five encounters.
- They had kept clean sheets in three of the last five clashes.
- At this venue, the guests are on a three-fixture winning streak.
- The last the hosts won at this stadium was back in 2008.
- The latest match-up at this stadium had ended in a 0-1 win for the visitors.
Bordeaux vs Strasbourg Prediction
The Girondins lost 3-1 on the road the last match-day, against Montpellier. In the meantime, the Racers lost 1-2 at home the past game week, against Lens.
Going on, Gasset’s men were winless in nine of their preceding ten overall fixtures, and of these, eight were losses. Note that they had also conceded two or more goals in seven of their former ten games.
Moreover, they had lost four of their last five home appearances, and had scored a total of one goal in the process.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in four of their former six games, and they had remained so in six of their preceding nine road trips.
In addition, the Racers also have a great h2h record against this foe over the years.
Considering these observations, expect Strasbourg to post the three points on the board this Sunday.
