Lille vs Bordeaux
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 13th December 2020
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille).
Lille have had a fantastic start to the season and come into this fixture in 2nd place. They have 26 points and are just 2 points behind league leaders PSG and if they win this game they would go top of the league at least for a few hours until PSG play their game on Sunday evening.
Lille will be favourites to win and they have gone their last 3 league matches undefeated. Last weekend they overcame a tough competitor in Monaco and won 2-1 and that raised eyebrows and the validation hat Lille will be there and thereabouts near the top come the end of the season.
Even better than PSG Lille has the best home form in the league where from a possible 21 points they have won 17 and are unbeaten. They have conceded just 3 goals at home and are scoring 2 goals on average per home game.
Bordeaux are back in 10th place but have 19 points and a win would push them into the top 10, but it is still very close.
Last weekend Bordeaux enjoyed a win beating Brest 1-0 and that means the club have no defeats in their last three just like Lille. Away form has improved too and they recently held PSG to a 2-2 draw in Paris, so they remain a danger in this encounter.
Lille vs Bordeaux Head to Head
Last season Lille won this fixture 3-0.
Since 2012 Bordeaux have won at Lille just once which last happened in 2017.
There is a 70% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Lille vs Bordeaux Prediction
Lille showed us how strong they are by beating Monaco and whilst Bordeaux can give them a game we think the home side will be just too strong.
There are goals everywhere in this exciting Lille side, and they will have to start quick and make their mark on the game and control the pace. This is why we are tempted to back Lille in the half time market which will also give us more value.
Jonathan Bamba is good to score goals even from his position and he will be worth backing even for smaller stakes. We must respect Lille’s solid home record and feel confident that they will get the job done at the weekend.
