Slavia Prague vs Bordeaux
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 20 September 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Eden Arena (Prague).
Bordeaux’s form looks to have encountered a massive stumbling block at the start of the new season. They sit second from bottom with only four points from five games in Ligue 1. It’ a bitterly disappointing return if we know Les Girondins played the likes of Strasbourg, Toulouse, Rennes and Nimes along the way.
It’s certainly not the kind of form the head coach Gus Poyet wanted to have ahead of a daunting trip to the Czech capital for the Slavia Prague clash in the opening fixture of the new Europa League season. The Stars made a phenomenal start to the new domestic campaign where they took as many as 21 points from 8 matches.

Slavia Prague vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Jindich Trpisovsky has reasons to be thrilled with his men’s form ahead of the Bordeaux clash on Thursday. The hosts won as many as seven of eight league games conceding just four times in the process, They’ve been super prolific at the other end in the process, shipping as many as 21 goals along the way.
The Stars notched ten goals in three consecutive wins in Czech Liga. They have three different men with three or more goals scored so far in the season. Such an impressive attacking form could likely be continued here knowing that Bordeaux have been way too easy to break down in the most recent set of outings they played.
The visitors allowed five goals in last two league affairs with Rennes (2-0 defeat) and Nimes (3-3 draw). They’ve also struggled for success in this competition beforehand, failing to win a single of six group phase matches in the 2015/16 campaign. Les Girondins played the likes of Liverpool, Sion and Rubin Kazan home and away back then.
We just have to try with the home win at the 2.20 odds, while the alternative bet would be Slavia Prague to net two or more goals at 2.40.
