Reason For Bordeaux vs Nimes Predictions

  • Bordeaux have won their last three home games while Nîmes haven’t won on the road since May.
  • The visitors have scored in just three of their eight away games this season.
  • Bordeaux have scored twice in five of their last seven matches.

Sousa finally finding his rhythm

Bordeaux kept up their good form on Saturday as they lengthened their unbeaten streak to five games with a 1-1 draw against a very good Reims side. Ex-Sunderland man Josh Maja got the opening goal and Bordeaux had numerous chances to kill the game off but didn’t, allowing Boulaye Dia to strike home an equaliser in the last minute. Despite this, it has been encouraging signs for Paolo Sousa’s men recently with confident wins over Monaco (2-1) and Nantes (2-0) bolstering their confidence. 

They have been consistently scoring with eight goals in their last five outings while keeping it relatively solid at the back with just three leaked in that time. Bordeaux’s home form has been extremely enviable recently with them winning each of their last three games at the Matmut Atlantique. Paolo Sousa’s men have scored six goals and kept two clean sheets in that time.

Nîmes on an unwanted streak

Nîmes would have wished for an easier opponent for this match as they have been in awful form recently and are in desperate need of three points in the run up to Christmas. They are now winless in their last eight league games with four defeats along the way. The Crocodiles have failed to score in half of those games and currently sit second bottom in the table.

Manager Bernard Blaquart has been feeling the heat recently but his team haven’t been doing anything to help him as they have created the fifth least chances and scored the third least goals this season. Nîmes are usually a team known for their attacking flair but that hasn’t been the case this season and it could get worse as les Girondins come to town.

The impenetrable Stade Matmut Atlantique

Bordeaux’s home form has been very strong recently whereas Nîmes have the third worst away record in the league. The Crocodiles were lucky to get a point against a poor Metz side at the weekend so we’re going to back the hosts to get the win here. Les Girondins should’ve got the win over Reims on Saturday so we’re expecting them to get the three points here against a far weaker team. Nîmes have failed to score in five of their last eight away games so we think this will end 2-10to the hosts. Bordeaux have scored twice in five of their last seven home games, keeping three clean sheets along the way.
