France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 12th May 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille).
Lille are so close to 2nd place, the runners up spot that would cofirm automatic qualification for the Champions League that they can feel it. They are 6 points clear of Lyon and a win here would all but assure they finish 2nd.
Lille will be the hot favourites to win this game and their form has been realiable. Last weekend they drew 2-2 in what was a massice game against the chasing Lyon. Lille have the 3rd best home record in the league and they have won 3 of their last 4 games here. Their last home game ended in a 5-0 win over Nimes and they have scored 10 goals here in their last two games.
Bordeaux on the other hand have had a very poor season and they are down in 14th place on 38 points. They come into this game having lost their last 4 in a row. To make matters worse the club has the 2nd to worst away record in the league where they have won just 2 games all season and scored just 9 goals on the road.

Lille vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Lille should win this game with ease but they are a little too much odds on of around 1.44 (2/5) to do so and that could be a risk for us, remember that Bordeaux have already beaten Lille this season. The better choice would be to back Bordeaux to win on the handicap, why?
Well because even though Lille can be strong these games rarely finish with lots of goals, it ends up being a better quoted price for us and also there is less risk. We will also back Lille’s Nicolas Pepe to score anytime, the striker has been in great form.
