Clermont Foot vs Bordeaux
Coupe de France
Date: Sunday, 8th January, 2016
Kick off at 13:15 UK Time
Venue: Stade Gabriel Montpied, Clermont Ferrand.
Ligue 2 side Clermont Foot will certainly be the outsiders when they get the chance to take on top flight side Bordeaux at home. Clermont are currently in 10th position in Ligue 2 and are 10 points behind leaders Brest. They are currently on a 3 game unbeaten run and at home they haven’t lost in 3 months. They will be sure to be motivated for this big game match and will give it their all.
In some ways it’s fair to say all the pressure will be on Bordeaux to perform and get a result, though the truth is the club has been quite erratic this season. The club have not won a game for five matches, but with this being the first game of the year for them, this is a perfect opportunity to wipe the slate clean and kick-start their season.
Bordeaux have just announced the signing of 20 year old Daniel Mancini from Newell’s Old Boys and the young prodigy has been tipped to be a star for the club.

The teams have only met once which was in 2015, it was a friendly match at Bordeaux which they won 2-0. So there is literally no history on these two teams.
Clermont Foot vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Clermont have the better form and being at home they will want to put on a good show. They can certainly score and frighten Bordeaux. The price on the away side should be avoided, despite them having better quality in the team, one has to wonder about motivation, and Bordeaux have big motivational issues.
