Bordeaux Preview – Can Bordeaux achieve top half finish this term?

Bordeaux made a slightly disappointing 12th place finish at the conclusion of last season’s French top flight campaign although it was cut short due the enforced lockdown across the majority of the European leagues, but the hosts will have been encouraged by their solid finish to the term.

Friday’s hosts finished up by losing just one of their last eight matches overall in Ligue 1 and that loss was certainly no disgrace as they went down 4-3 away from home at the French champions, PSG, but this promising period of results also included wins against Friday’s opponents, Nantes, and Metz, both of which were away from home.

Bordeaux also lost just twice in their final eight matches of the season on home turf at their Stade Matmut-Atlantique amidst an overall home record of 4-5-4 19/12 and this also included a 2-0 home win against Nantes, as well as victories over Monaco and Nimes.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Nantes Preview – Can Nantes make a good start?

By contrast, Nantes finished last season’s Ligue 1 campaign in worrying fashion as the visitors achieved just the one win from what turned out to be their final eight matches of the French top flight season which was gained in a 2-1 win on the road at Marseille.

However, this turned out to be the exception rather than the rule for Nantes who also suffered five defeats within this period with defeats incurred against Bordeaux, Rennes, PSG, Lille and Angers, while an away record of 5-2-7 17/20 included just three wins out of their last 10 matches on the road.

With just three clean sheets on their travels last term along with their previous poor record against their hosts, Bordeaux, this looks like being a tough season-opener for Nantes.
