Bordeaux vs Strasbourg Prediction & Betting tips
On Friday evening, the Matmut Atlantique is again full for the game between the home team Girondins de Bordeaux and RC Strasbourg. The home team needs a victory to get back into the left row, but can also be overtaken by the visitors during a defeat.
Jocelyn Gourvennec led the team from Bordeaux last season to a nice sixth place in the league, but this season is still very unstable at the beginning of the season in the preliminaries of the Europa League was the unknown Hungarian Videoton FC too strong for the Gourvennec team. In the league, the team then started very strong with fifteen points from seven games to then lose 6-2 to PSG and out of the last nine matches to catch only five points. Only against the even more ailing AS Saint-Étienne was won and the position of Gourvennec is anything but stable.
At the start of the season, Les Girondins seemed to be one of the favorites for a top-6 finish, but at this moment the sixth place seems the highest possible. With players like Benoit Costil, Malcom, Nicolas de Preville and Younousse Sankharé, the team has one of the better selections in the Ligue 1, but football remains a team sport as it turns out. Last weekend at Dijon, Les Girondins were halfway on a 1-2 lead, and then had to return home scoreless. The fact that the team managed to create quite a few chances and only lost due to individual errors offers prospects for the future.
The team of Thierry Laurey has been in the Championnat National and the Ligue 2 for the last two seasons and then it is always a matter of how the team performs the following season. A stunt just like Leicester will not race for Racing given the bad start of the season (four points out of seven matches) but life is certainly possible given the game of recent weeks. With ten points from twelve games, the team seemed to be relegated with Metz’s favorite, but the results of the last four games have given the team a lot of perspective.
Especially the victory against PSG last weekend, the first defeat of the Parisians this season, was impressive. Not so much because of the offensive game that Laurey put his men on the mat, only two shots were fired on target, both of which produced a goal, but because Strasbourg had to take only one goal. In the first half, goalkeeper Bingourou Kamara was left with no chance, while his replacement Alexandre Oukidja managed to keep his goal clean in the second half. As a result, Laurey’s team can remain unbeaten for the fifth time in a row on Friday-evening.
