Monaco vs Bordeaux
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 9th March 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II.
Monaco have made a fantastic recovery once Leonardo Jardim was allowed to come back to the side and the club will want to continue that progress when they will play at home against Bordeaux on Saturday evening.
Monaco drew 2-2 away to Angers in their last game but they are now in 16th place and 6 points from the bottom three. The club are unbeaten in over a month as the players have really responded to Jardim coming back.
At home Monaco have lost 50% of their games but it is only recent form that is worth counting and the club have won 3 games in a row here. Their last game at Stade Louis II ended in a superb 2-0 victory over 3rd placed Lyon.
Bordeaux are six points ahead of Monaco and in 13th position, which is where Monaco would love to be now. It has been a yo-yo season for the club and their last game ended in defeat against Montpellier when they lost 2-1. Indeed recent form has not been good and the club have no wins in their last 3 games.
Monaco vs Bordeaux: Head to Head
Last season Monaco won this fixture 2-1.
Between 2008 and 2016 Bordeaux have only won at Monaco once.

There is a 70% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
Monaco vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Our bet here is to see Monaco get the win. They have been terrific especially at home and they have a very good record over Bordeaux here. Monaco have a lot of confidence and are aiming for a mid table finish which they should be able to achieve.
Bordeaux just don’t have the team or form to compete with Monaco at this time. We will back goals and we will also back Radamel Falcao to score, the player has looked like a new one since Jardim’s arrival.
