Bordeaux vs Nice Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Bordeaux will look to get back to winning ways when they welcome Nice at the Stade Matmut-Atlantique on Wednesday evening in the Coupe de la Ligue. Bordeaux managed a 0-2 victory on the road at Chateauroux in the previous round thanks to two goals from Francois Kamano and Adam Ounas. Nice in comparison with Jocelyn Gourvennec’s men, haven’t played in the Coupe de la Ligue so far this season and will look to kick-off their campaign brightly. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Bordeaux Preview

Bordeaux were on an eight-game unbeaten streak across all competitions between the middle of October to the end of November, but they showed some signs of weakness of late. Les Girondins have suffered two consecutive defeats in Ligue 1 so far in December, without scoring a single goal in the process. This puts them only in 10th position in the Ligue 1 table tied on 24 points with the 9th-placed Marseille. Regarding their Coupe de la Ligue record, Bordeaux in the round of 16 in two of their last three attempts, but they managed to reach the Semi-finals in the previous edition. Furthermore, Les Girondins have a reach history in Coupe de la Ligue, as they managed to win the trophy back in 2001/2002, 2006/2007 and 2008/2009 seasons, and were the runners-up in 2009/2010. Their home record in Coupe de la Ligue reads seven wins and two defeats in their last nine home fixtures, and are currently on a two-game winning run. The bad news is that Bordeaux are winless in the last five home meetings with Nice, and have only scored four goals in this term. Diego Rolan is Bordeaux’s topscorer at the moment in Ligue 1 with four goals under his belt, while Gaetan Laborde, Malcom and Francois Kamano have scored three goals each in Ligue 1.

Nice Preview

On the contrary, Nice haven’t been at their best in Coupe de la Ligue recently as they were eliminated from the first round of the competition in their last four attempts. Overall, they managed to reach the final in 2005/2006 season, and the semi-finals in the 2008/2009 and 2011/2012 seasons. Nice have lost five of their last nine games in Coupe de la Ligue, including a penalty-shootout defeat against Guingamp in their most recent Cup fixture in the middle of December 2015. Their away record in Coupe de la Ligue reads six defeats and three victories in their last nine away fixtures. However, Nice head on a high in this fixture following their 2-2 away draw at the reigning champions Paris Saint-Germain in their most recent Ligue 1 fixture. This was their most difficult test of the season so far, and they passed it, leaving them on top of the Ligue 1 table with just one point clear off the second-placed Monaco. Nice’s secret for their good performances throughout their Ligue 1 campaign has been their solid defence, as they have the meanest defence in the division with just 12 goals conceded in 17 rounds so far this season. Alassane Plea is definitely a player to watch here, as the 23-year-old midfielder is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 10 goals and one assist in his 17 league appearances.

Bordeaux Team News

Diego Rolan and Younes Kaabouni are both doubts, while  Cedric Carrasso and Thomas Toure are both missing through injury. However, Abdou Traore and Nicolas Maurice-Belay are both back in training.

Nice Team News

Valentin Eysseric, Paul Baysse and Mouez Hassen are all out through injury, while Gautier Lloris and William Suaut are both doubts. The good news is that Mickael Le Bihan is back in training.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Bordeaux are favourites to win here due to their home advantage. However, Nice’s recent form across all competitions has been much better than Bordeaux’s form. Furthermore, Nice are undefeated in their last six visits to the Stade Matmut-Atlantique, winning two and drawing three in this term. This makes me back Nice to secure at least one draw in this one. My second bet for this clash is both teams to score, as four of the previous five meetings between these two sides have seen goals at both ends of the pitch.
