Bordeaux Prediction

The hosts head into this Tuesday night clash with Montpellier having registered just one league win from their last six matches overall in Ligue 1, which was a 2-1 home win over Toulouse, but this has been a rare achievement of late as they’ve also suffered defeats to Strasbourg, Marseille, PSG and Nantes in recent weeks.

Within this six-match sequence, Bordeaux have failed to hit the back of the net in five of these matches which is a major concern for manager, Eric Bedouet who will be desperate for his side to pul themselves out of their current slump.

There is hope though – Bordeaux possess a pretty solid looking home record which stands at 6-5-2 18/13 which includes the hosts putting together a seven-match unbeaten run at their Stade Matmut-Atlantique which includes wins against Saint-Etienne, Dijon and Toulouse.

Goals haven’t always featured on a regular basis as 7 of their 13 home matches have seen the under 2.5 goals result come in, along with keeping five clean sheets to date on home turf.

4 of the last 7 meetings between these two sides have resulted in under 2.5 goals.


Key-Facts – Bordeaux v Montpellier

  • Bordeaux are unbeaten in their last 7 home matches in Ligue 1
  • Montpellier have won just 1 of their last 11 matches in Ligue 1
  • 4 of the last 7 meetings between these two sides have resulted in under 2.5 goals


Montpellier Prediction

Montpellier dropped down to 8th place in Ligue 1 following a disappointing 4-2 loss at home to Reims last time out in league action, and this became their second defeat on the trot as they’d previously been handed a heavy 5-1 loss away at PSG, and these two results have extended Montpellier’s run without a league win to five matches.

Indeed, Montpellier have managed just the one win from their last 11 matches overall in the French top flight which was a 2-0 home win over third from bottom outfit, Caen, but generally speaking, the visitors have had a tough time of it of late.

The visitors have been involved in a relatively high number of draws away from home so far this season as they’re tied joint highest with 6 stalemates with Reims and Caen amidst an overall away record which stands at 4-6-3 14/15.

Goals have also been in short supply where Montpellier are concerned as 8 of their 13 away matches have resulted in the under 2.5 goals mark, and another draw here also can’t be ruled out either.

Betting Tips Verdict

Bordeaux have been solid at home in recent times and might just edge Montpellier here, but this looks like being a low-scoring affair.
