      Tip Reasoning

      There are a couple of different potential viewpoints that could be adopted for this tie. One suggests that Bordeaux’s disappointing start to the Ligue 1 action is reflective of a squad that doesn’t possess enough fire power and isn’t the same side that has regularly claimed positions in European football over the last few seasons. The other is that it is just two games. One viewpoint suggests that Kairat are a surprise package and are better than people realise, the other agrees that that might be true, but suggests a trip to Bordeaux is a different matter when you are a known entity.

      A last minute long range strike from Henri Saivet saved Bordeaux from suffering back-to-back losses in Ligue 1 action and it is in attack that manager Willy Sagnol will have the most serious concerns. The former French power house has struggled to maintain possession and just hasn’t shown the level of finish required in the final third of football games.

      Still, before their Ligue 1 blemishes, they had secured a confident 4-1 aggregate victory over AEK Larnaca in the Europa League and they shouldn’t be too concerned about this tie.

      Kairat have much to celebrate. The Kazakh champions have surprised everyone by getting this far in the competition. They are one major upset away from securing the unlikeliest of places in the Europa League group stages.

      They’ve already achieved shocking victories over Red Star Belgrade and Aberdeen in this competition, but Bordeaux are a different proposition and the benefit of being little known is beginning to fade away. Kairat’s game will be one of the headlines of this next round of fixtures and it’ll be difficult for this side to deal with that attention.

      Striker Gohou proved a handful against Aberdeen and it’s worth noting that Kairat are not a side that will play lockdown defensive football. They are willing to have a go and that should be expected, at least to some extent on Thursday night.

      Bordeaux will make changes and that freshness combined with the significance of the occasion will make them too much for Kairat to handle. We’re anticipating a relatively assured victory, similar to the one secured in their previous Europa League home tie. Our betting tips strongly back a win with the Asian Handicap line looking good on bet365.
