Reason For Bordeaux vs Nice Predictions

  • Nice have won just one of their last ten away games with seven defeats along the way.
  • Bordeaux have a solid home record with five wins and draws against Dijon and Marseille in their last nine matches at the Matmut Atlantique.
  • Both teams have netted in eight of Nice’s last nine games as well as in each of Bordeaux’s last four.

Nice Lacking Consistency

Nice were leading Brest 2-0 as they approached half-time last week but a lack of professionalism and solidity allowed les Ty’Zefs back into the game and Patrick Vieira’s men eventually had to settle for just the one point. This result continued les Aiglons’ rather shaky form as of late as they have struggled to really imprint their dominance on matches. They have won just two of their last seven games and will have to cope with being the away team for this one.

Vieira’s men won their last away game but this came against bottom club Toulouse in a victory that still had the manager criticising the performance. Before that they had been winless in ten away games with seven defeats along the way. Nice have been creating fewer chances and conceding considerably more on the road so this will be a difficult one. They have netted four goals in their last three away games but three of these were scored by defenders with the other coming from the penalty spot.

Bordeaux Having Their Moments

Bordeaux succeeded in stunning everyone last week as they took PSG all the way in a 4-3 defeat. It was a tremendous performance from Paolo Sousa’s men as they managed to keep up their fantastic scoring form against the champions. Les Girondins have been very good in the final third as of late with eight goals netted in their last four games. 

However, it has really been their defence which is in need of an overhaul as they’ve also conceded eight in this time. Despite the drubbing from Paris, the other four goals were conceded by 17th place Dijon and the two newly-promoted sides Brest and Metz so there is definite improvement needed. 

Even though they have the one win in their last five home games, there were some difficult games in there with both Lyon and Marseille travelling to the Matmut Atlantique, the latter of which Bordeaux managed to snatch a point off of. Before this they had been on a run of four straight wins and with Nice so poor on the road, Sousa’s men should fancy their chances here. 

The Hosts To Edge This One?

Bordeaux are in with a good shout here as they host a Nice side still recovering from the second half against Brest. We’re expecting the hosts to win this one but also for Nice to get on the scoresheet. Both teams have netted in eight of Nice’s last nine games as well as in each of Bordeaux’s last four. 1-1 was the scoreline when these times last met but we’re going to back the hosts with a 2-1 win.
