Bordeaux Prediction

Bordeaux sit in 12th place on the Ligue 1 ladder but bring a solid run of five matches without defeat into this bottom half clash in Ligue 1 against Amiens, and another three points here would see the hosts move closer to the top half of the division.

Of these last five matches, Bordeaux have been involved in four draws with Lyon, Caen, Dijon and PSG along with a 3-2 home win over Saint-Etienne last time out in the French top flight. On home turf, the hosts possess a home record of 4-3-2 14/11 which includes losing just once in their last eight matches at their Stade Matmut-Atlantique which was a 1-0 defeat to Nice.

However, wins over Monaco, Lille, Nantes and Saint-Etienne should stand the hosts in good stead here along with the goalscoring exploits of forwards Kamano (8 goals) and Briand (4 goals) who represent Bordeaux’s best chances of scoring in this one.

Amiens Prediction

Amiens occupy 17th place in Ligue 1 but have avoided the relegation play-off spot by just a single goal difference ahead of third from bottom club Dijon as they prepare for their difficult trip to face Bordeaux this Sunday afternoon.

The visitors have actually recorded recent away wins at Toulouse and Guingamp but these wins have book-ended three straight defeats to Marseille, Nimes and Monaco, so there’s no guarantees for Amiens in this clash.

Amiens for the most part have tended to trade in either wins or losses on their travels so far this season as their record of 2-1-6 4/16 indicates, but the losses have outweighed their successes so far in this campaign.

In addition, goals have been hard to come by for Amiens on the road this term as they’ve failed to score in 6 of their 9 away matches to date, so this looks a tall order for the visitors at Bordeaux this afternoon.

Betting Tips Verdict

Of these two teams, Bordeaux look the more likely to take the honours here.
