Nice vs Bordeaux
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 12 January 2019
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Riviera (Nice).
Nice will be looking to bounce back from recent failures on Saturday when they play host to Bordeaux on Matchday No 20 at Allianz Riviera. Les Aiglons are winless in last six games across competitions. The most recent of losses came six days ago when they fell 4-1 away at Toulouse to see an early Coupe de France exit.
Patrick Vieira’s troops were struggling badly for goals in latest fixtures. They notched just two in past six outings across competitions. A streak of three draws and a defeat in last four Ligue 1 affairs saw them slide down to 10th in the league standings. It’s a poor situation given the team got off to a decent kick off to the new campaign in the top flight of French football. Can they rebound here against mid-table rivals Bordeaux?
Nice vs Bordeaux: Head-to-head
Bordeaux lead the head to head tie by six wins ahead of 43rd encounter with Les Aiglons.
Nevertheless, Les Girondins lost three and drew one of past four meetings with Nice.
Nice kept a clean sheet in four of past five clashes against Bordeaux.
Nice vs Bordeaux: Prediction
It’s been a roller-coaster ride when it comes to Bordeaux’s form in this term of Ligue 1 as well. They sit 13th in the league ladder ahead of the trip to Allianz Riviera. Les Girondins did get a revenge on Le Havre as a 1-0 mid-week victory sent them through to Coupe de la Ligue semi-final. They were previously eliminated from Coupe de France by same rivals and with the same scoreline (0-1) last weekend.
None of last five games Les Girondins played saw three or more goals (just one offered two or more goals actually). Since Nice were also struggling badly to create in the final third recently, the Under 2.5 goals FT just has to be our number one betting recommendation at the odds of 1.53 here.
Nice vs Bordeaux: Bet Tips
