PSG vs Bordeaux Prediction & Match Preview

PSG vs Bordeaux
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 9th February 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).

It finally happened- PSG lost a game in Ligue 1 after 21 matches. It was quite a run but was ended in dramatic fashion by Lyon last weekend when they beat them 2-1, and that was after going a goal down.

PSG’s lead at the top has been slashed to 10 points but at the same time they do have 2 games extra to play over Lille who are in 2nd position.

All of the cards are still with the current French champions. However, it is still interesting to see how a team who have not lost all season in Ligue 1 will react in the follow up game.

In Paris PSG have a 100% record where they have played 11 and won 11. They are almost scoring 4 goals per game and have only conceded 4 goals all season, which is simply a staggering record.

Bordeaux are in 12th place and come into this game having lost back to back games. They are in a poor position because on one hand they have enough in the thank not to be relegated but also, they look just too far from a European finish.

They have lost almost 60% of their games away from home and have scored just 7 goals on the road this season, that doesn’t bear well for this game. On top of that they come here in very poor form having lost 3 of their last 4 games away from home.

PSG vs Bordeaux: Prediction

PSG should have little problems getting past Bordeaux, but there is one major factor we have to think about.

PSG will travel to England next week to play Manchester United in a crucial Champions League match. Will Thomas Tuchel, the PSG coach, rest some key players ahead of this game?

After all PSG have a great lead in the league and the Champions League match is of high importance. At the same time he will surely want his team to bounce back from their defeat last weekend.

Yet, the Parisiennes are not good value to back and are massive odds on. Therefore, we will take PSG to be leading at half time, as the team will want to start quick and put this game out before it becomes a problem. Plus the odds are a little more favourable for us.
