Tip Reasoning

Bordeaux had a poor season during the 18-19 campaign by their standards, finiishing in 14th place in the French Ligue 1. At home in the league, they picked up just 7 wins, but they did manage to grab a fair few draws, drawing 6 and losing just 6. Away from home was another story, they were absolutely awful, picking up just 14 points and 3 wins, the 4th lowest in the league.

Their pre-season was absolutely dreadful. They lost to Partizan of Serbia 2-1, before losing to Austria’s Wolfeberger 3-1 and Marseille 2-1. They then picked up their only win of pre-season, ironically against this weekend’s opponents Montpellier in Washington. They finished off with their pre-season with losses against Galatasaray and Genoa, before starting off the French Ligue 1 season with a 3-1 loss at Angers.

Montpellier had a great season by their recent standards finishing in 6th place, their best finish since they won the league in 2012. They picked up the 4th most points of any away side, winning 7, drawing 6 and losing 6. This included wins against this weekend’s opponents Bordeaux (2-1), as well as beating 4th place finishers St Etienne (1-0) and Monaco (2-1).

Montpellier’s pre-season was not much better than Bordeaux’s, but at least finished on a positive. They started off with a draw against Beziers, before losing to St Etienne, although they did finish in 4th last season so that is not a terrible result at all. They followed that up with the aforementioned loss to Bordeaux (2-1), before drawing to Huddersfield and finally beating Girona of Spain 1-0. They then started off the new Ligue 1 season with a disappointing 1-0 loss to Rennes, missing a penalty in the match.

We think that Montpellier will bounce back from their opening weekend loss with a win in this one, however we don’t think the win will be a comfortable one as Bordeaux should put up a good fight. Therefore we are going for Montpellier Draw No Bet, and we are going for a repeat of the scoreline when the sides met last season, with a 2-1 Montpellier win.
