Nancy vs Bordeaux
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 28 January, 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Marcel-Picot, Tomblaine.
Nancy and Bordeaux are among the top teams In France if we are to look the record from January this year. Both sides have opened the new year in a tremendous fashion, but they both suffered mid-week losses in Coupe de la Ligue semifinals.
Nancy can, however, be much happier as they lost by a single goal at Louis II against Monaco which still leaves them with solid hopes to go all the way. Bordeaux are already out as they suffered a devastating 1-4 defeat to PSG at their Matmut-Antlantique stadium.
The Uruguayan manager Pablo Correa can be thrilled with his defensive line which allowed a single goal in four matches in 2017. The team took consecutive wins over Besancon, Nantes and Bastia before losing the away game at Monaco. Bordeaux showed decent attacking form at the start of the year which brought them three wins in last five games in all competitions.
Nancy vs Bordeaux: Head-to-Head Stats
The two sides have an unusual record for French conditions as each of their last four head to head encounters has seen the option of both teams netting. Bordeaux have been much more successful over the history winning 12 matches against Nancy who currently sit at no more than five. Nancy took their last win over the Girondins back in April 2010.

The visitors will have no other option but to adjust and play a patient waiting game. So, we see the Under 2.5 goals as the best betting option here set at 6/11 odds. Draw is the most probable of the three outcomes and is worth chasing at 2/1.
