Caen vs Bordeaux
French Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 24 May 2019
Kick-Off 20:05 UK / 21:05 CET
Venue: Stade Michel d’Ornano (Caen).
Caen’s dream run came to an end on Saturday when they ran into an in-mood Lyon side who put four goals past them at Groupama Stadium. It was a massive blow for team’s ambitions of securing the top flight survival, but Fabien Mercadal and his men can still fix things in a very much winnable contest against the most out-of-form team in the entire division here on Friday.
The hosts currently occupy 18th place, the one which leads to the relegation play-offs. It can still be regarded to as a huge accomplishment knowing they were looking at a dead end with seven defeats between February and April. Mercadal’s men won three and drew one of four games prior to the mentioned loss at third-placed Lyon.
Caen are now just two points behind Amiens in the safe zone and two points above Dijon in the danger area. Can they finish the season on a high and rebound from a tough defeat at Groupama Stadium?
Caen vs Bordeaux: Head-to-head
Outfits have eight wins apiece coming into their 24th head to head encounter.
Just one of last six H2H meetings between the two sides produced three or more goals.
Teams shared spoils in a goalless draw when they locked horns in this term of Ligue 1 in November last year at Stade Matmut-Atlantique.
Caen won two and drew one of past three meetings with Les Girondins who have failed to find the back of the net in the process.
Caen vs Bordeaux: Prediction
As mentioned above, Bordeaux are the most out-of-form team in the competition. They lost six on the spin coming into this final round game. Portuguese manager Paulo Sousa will likely lose his job after this highly underwhelming campaign the team has had under his reign (since March).
Les Girondins have nothing to play for here, they did not score a single goal in last three affairs and they did not produce at all up front in past three head to head ties against Caen either. This is a super-important match for the hosts who do really come into it as massive favourites based on everything written above.
