Bordeaux vs Montpellier Prediction & Betting tips
On Tuesday, March 5, the quaking teams Girondins de Bordeaux and Montpellier will compete against each other in the Matmut Atlantique. Do the Girondins know to take revenge for the 2-0 defeat on a visit to Montpellier earlier this season, or does Montpellier win for the first time since the end of January?
Girondins de Bordeaux:
Girondins de Bordeaux is in a huge form dip in view of the results of the last weeks. From the last six league games, only four points were achieved (2-1 home win against low flyer Toulouse and 0-0 draw at last minute and Avant Guingamp) and last round of play Nantes was the tenth defeat of the season ago. The team of Éric Bedouet came despite 57% possession to only two shots on goal, against eight of Nantes. Offensive the Girondijnen have been poor all season with only 25 hits in 26 games, on average not even one hit per game, and it is not surprising that no less than nine of Bedouet’s last ten substitutions were in the attack line.
In home games, however, the Girondijnen are not so disappointing with 23 points from thirteen games and an unbeaten series of seven league games in-house. AS Saint-Étienne and Lille returned home with a defeat from the Matmut Atlantique and league-leader Paris Saint-Germain was also held on a draw in Bordeaux. In the most recent home game, as mentioned, was played against last minute and Avant Guingamp, but also in that game was the field game of the Girondijnen certainly not bad, only offensively it should be a lot better if Bedouet his team still wants to lead to the left row.
Les Heraults are faced with an immense form crisis as witnessed by the fact that they only achieved one victory in their last eleven league matches, while the team was still in second place in the Ligue 1 after fifteen rounds of play. Last week, first visit to Paris Saint-Germain was a big 5-1 defeat and then in-house despite a 1-0 lead with 4-2 lost to doctoral candidate Reims. Only the shared numbers eighteen Caen and Dijon managed to collect less points from their last ten games in the Ligue 1 than the team of Michel Der Zakarian
Defensive in particular, the team from Der Zakarian has been leaking as recently as a basket with no less than twelve goals in the last five matches, against sixteen goals in the first 21 games of the season. One of the causes of this is an injury from Pedro Mendes, after fifteen minutes of play against PSG, and the fact that his replacement, Nicolas Cozza, a twenty-year defensive talent of French origin, has been weighed up to now and found to be too light. The last five games in which Cozza played were all lost by Montpellier and only against Angers, Nîmes Olympique and Olympique Marseille, Montpellier managed to keep zero with Cozza in base.
