Bordeaux – Strasbourg : Preview & Prediction
Bordeaux will want to find the way to victory after its defeat in Marseille (3-1) suffered on the last day, December 8. Before this failure, the Bordelais had fielded 6 games without a single loss. On the lawn of Matmut Atlantique, the Girondins struck down one after the other Dijon (2-0), Nantes (2-0), Monaco (2-1) and Nîmes (6-0) and hope to chain a 5th home victory against to a Strasbourg team with disappointing results outside (6 defeats in 8 trips). Will the current 15th take water from the 5th which is within easy reach of the podium (2 points)? The Alsatian club has just won Toulouse (4-2) and is breathing in the rankings after 2 previous defeats against Lyon (1-2) and Brest (5-0). With 7 defeats in its last 8 trips, Strasbourg does not arrive in confidence in Gironde and could suffer a new disillusionment away from the Meinau.
Strasbourg has totaled 2 defeats over the last 3 days.
Marseille ended the Girondins’ 6-game unbeaten streak last weekend.
The “Marine et Blanc” are on 4 victories in a row at Matmut Atlantique, including the Coupe de la Ligue and Ligue 1.
Strasbourg has suffered 7 defeats in its last 8 trips, all competitions combined.
Strasbourg lost their last away game in Brest (5-0).
Bordeaux humiliated Nîmes (6-0) during its last reception;
Bordeaux has been very successful at Matmut Atlantique in recent weeks and should add another victory to the meter against a very limited opponent outside.
