      Bordeaux vs Rubin Kazan Predictions

      Defeat at Anfield against Liverpool ended Bordeaux’s European football ambitions and a relatively poor campaign all round. For Willy Sagnol’s team, it might come as a welcome relief, the first part of the French Ligue 1 season has also gone very poorly and they need to focus on picking up results in that competition if they’re realistic about returning to the Europa League, or even just posting somewhere measurably respectable in the Ligue 1 standings.

      Meanwhile, Rubin Kazan needs to pull out a win away from home and hope that Liverpool beat Sion on their trip to Switzerland. Any other combination of results will see their Europa League campaign come to an end.

      Generally, Rubin are a stronger side at home, where they beat Sion 2-0 in the last round of games. They did manage to grab a draw at Anfield, but were outplayed and beaten 2-1 when they travelled to play the Swiss side. The last time these two teams met, it was a less than exciting goal-less draw. There’s a possibility that it could happen again.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Bordeaux likely to rest key players

      Now is the time to start keeping key players healthy and well rested for the critical Ligue 1 clashes. We fully expect Bordeaux to rest key players and to reduce their potency going forward, expect a more defensive-minded, counter-attacking mindset on Thursday.

      2. Rubin’s gameplan

      It’s just how they play in general, they’re looking to lock the game down and hoping to nab the goal they need to pick up three points. There’s no reason to change the approach and this club has already shown in this competition that it has the virtue of patience.

      3. Match-up

      Simply put, this is a match-up between two teams that can easily get stalemated, even if one side completely dominates the play, we could see it ending up as a 1-0 game. This isn’t going to be back and forth and there will not be a load of chances.
