Bordeaux vs Strasbourg Prediction & Betting tips
Girondins de Bordeaux and RC Strasbourg lost this transfer period both their absolute star player last season. Which of the two teams will remain with the best team?
Girondins de Bordeaux:
Girondins de Bordeaux had to start preparing for the new season early on, thanks to its participation in the qualifying for the Europa League, but it seems that Gustavo Poyet’s team has not done any harm to date. Both games against Ventspils from Latvia were not won too convincingly (0-1 and 2-1), but Poyet can now prepare his men for a diptych with the Ukrainian Mariupol. After the defeat against Paris Saint Germain in mid-April was no longer lost in official games, a series that Poyet will want to continue.
A big loss for the Girondijnen was of course the million transfer from Malcom to FC Barcelona. Following the example set by Ajax this summer to spend the millions that arrive at outbound transfer, Les Girondins won the Nigerian winger Samuel Kalu at the start of this week for about eight million euros. Last season, the Nigerian per game averaged 0.47 goals per game at AA Gent, on average more than his Brazilian predecessor at Bordeaux last season, which incidentally scored more goals.
Who last year about Strasbourg could not ignore Jean-Eudes Aholou. The entire team revolved around the Ivorian defensive midfielder who also knew how to score. With an average goal per seven games, Aholou did not score too much, but if he scored, it was always Strasbourg’s first goal. Ibrahim Sissoko, a 20-year-old French Malian must take over the role of Aholou in the selection of Thierry Laurey. However, Sissoko was involved last year in only three goals in 27 games in the Ligue 1, so he will have to make some serious steps.
Sissoko is not the only newcomer at Strasbourg this season. With the attraction of Matz Sels and Stefan Mitrovic, Thierry Laurey has won a goalkeeper and a central defender, which means that there should be more rest in the back for the team that had to take in 67 opponents last season. With ten goals in seven preparation games, there is still enough work to be done at the back of the store, but in return there were eleven goals, while last season only 44 games were scored.
