PSG could go top of Ligue 1 on Wednesday but they have to win their own game first of all, against a Bordeaux team who are woefully out of form at the moment.

Bordeaux Preview – Can Bordeaux end a dismal run and find a first win in eight games?

Jean-Louis Gasset is beginning to feel real pressure for the first time since taking over at Bordeaux last summer. His team are now without a win in seven games which has seen them drop to 11th in Ligue 1. They do have an eight point lead over third bottom Nimes so it would still be a surprise to see them be properly pulled into a relegation battle but their is some concern there. Their recent poor run has also included an exit in the French Cup at home to Ligue 2 Toulouse.

Gasset’s team coming into this game with just one point from their last six league games so a visit of perennial champions PSG is probably the last thing they would want just now.

Up until this poor recent run, Bordeaux had been in contention for a European spot but that looks beyond them now. Gasset’s men are eight points behind fifth place Metz. All concerned will just be hoping to end this dismal run as soon as possible and record a first win since the 24th of January.
Scoring goals has been an issue all season with just 28 goals in 27 matches. It’s been even more challenging of late, with Bordeaux managing only one goal in their last four home games.

PSG Preview – Will the champions make it five straight away wins to boost their hopes of retaining their title?

Maurico Pochettino may have taken over earlier this year to much fanfare but PSG still find themselves trailing Lille at the top of Ligue 1. The Parisians did make up some of the points differential at the weekend when brushing Dijon aside (4-o) away from home whilst the leaders could only draw. PSG also went ahead of Lyon with their rival also dropping points.

Pochettino knows his team have to put together an extended run of wins to assert authority over the other title contenders. But he has been unable to do that until this point with defeats to Monaco and Lorient in the last month.

Still without Neymar, PSG continue to look to Kylian Mbappe for inspiration. His two goals in the win over Dijon takes him on to 18 in the league and another five in the Champions League – including that recent hat-trick against Barcelona. He seems to be returning to his best form of late and if he can keep it up then you sense PSG won’t be off top spot for long.

Since losing to Lorient early in Pochettino’s reign, PSG have reeled off four straight wins on the road, scoring 11 goals in the process.

Bordeaux vs PSG Betting Advice

A 2-2 draw in the Parc des Princes back in late November was the first time Bordeaux had been able to take points off PSG in over four years. On current form you have to think that a similar result is beyond the home team but they may well be able to raise their game.

Bordeaux will also take some encouragement from the fact that PSG have dropped points in nine games already this season. To put that in context, they failed to win just five in the whole of last season.

 

Key Facts – Bordeaux vs PSG Betting Tip

  • Bordeaux are on a run which has seen them take just one point from their last six league games
  • PSG closed the gap on leaders Lille to two points following the weekend win over Dijon
  • The teams drew 2-2 when they met each other in Paris earlier this season

 

It’s too early to say that PSG are back to their very best  but they are certainly showing more consistency on their travels. They have kept three clean sheets in a row domestically and with their opponent’s struggling for form I fancy them to make that four as they pick up another three points.
