Videoton closed the second round tie with Nomme Kalju in the first leg when they clinched a 0-3 win on the road.
The Hungarian squad could face the Estonian team’s destiny in the very following round as they will be massive underdogs against French giants Bordeaux.
The first leg is set to be played on Thursday evening at Stade Matmut-Atlantique.
Les Girondins can still remember the dreadful Europa League campaign from two years ago when they failed to snatch a single win in six group phase games against the likes of Liverpool, Rubin Kazan’ and Sion.
Jocelyn Gourvennec’s side is set to open the new season in the third qualifying round of the competition where they will be massive favourites against Videoton.
The team has been very tough to break down during the pre-season period as they kept consecutive clean sheets in wins over Bastia, Real Sociedad and Guingamp.
The visitors have sky-high ambitions in the new season in their domestic league, but their Europa League campaign is likely to come to an end after a horrendous third-round draw.
The Serbian attacking duo Danko Lazovic and Marko Scepovic has been red-hot at the start of the season as they bagged the total of six goals in Europa League.
Bordeaux vs Videoton: Head to head
This will be the first ever head to head encounter between the two teams.
Bordeaux vs Videoton: Prediction
Even though Bordeaux showed quite an impressive defensive form during their pre-season schedule, we have to try with the BTTS pick and back Scepovic and Lazovic to keep the hot run of form going and score at least once at Stade Matmut-Atlantique.
Bordeaux vs Videoton: Bet Tips
The main bet is Bordeaux to win & BTTS at the odds of 5/2.
