Bordeaux vs Nice Prediction & Betting tips
French Football Sunday will be kicked off by Girondins de Bordeaux and Olympique Nice. As in the previous six editions, can we expect a match with few goals?
With two draws and a victory in the first three games of the new season, the start of the season for Girondins de Bordeaux was not yet too convincing and the 2-1 defeat to PhD student RC Lens last weekend was therefore not an illogical continuation. Not for the first time this season, Jean-Louis Gasset’s team struggled to create opportunities and due to a red card for defender Paul Baysse early in the second half, the Girondins were unable to fall back on the so far fairly solid defensive organization.
Together with AS Saint-Étienne, Lille and Paris Saint-Germain, the Girondins have taken the fewest hits so far, which is quite surprising given Gasset’s selection. All four defenders of les Girondins who kicked off last weekend have years of experience and have been under contract in Bordeaux for some time, but never played in the current line-up last season. Now that Baysse is suspended for the match against Olympique Nice, Pablo Nascimento Castro seems to get another chance. Looking at the statistics, that does not offer too much hope for Gasset’s team, because in the previous five games in which Pablo was at the kick-off, no fewer than nine goals were conceded.
With two victories in the first two games of the new season, Olympique Nice briefly topped the league table of the Ligue 1, but Patrick Vieira’s team has now dropped to the middle bracket. Two weeks ago they lost 3-1 on a visit to Montpellier and last weekend a 3-0 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain was suffered in their own stadium. Defensively, les Aiglons currently seem to have the necessary difficulty and if Vieira’s team wants to participate for a place in the subtop, improvements must be made quickly.
As many as three players from les Aiglons were not available against PSG because they had to be quarantined and that was reflected in all aspects of the game of Vieira’s team. On the offensive, the Danish striker Kasper Dolberg, who has already scored twice this season, was seriously missed. His replacement for the striker position was Amine Gouiri, but he simply pays a lot better as a winger than as a center forward. It is still unclear whether Dolberg will be available again this weekend, but if this is not the case, the task for Aiglons will be even more difficult.
