Based on the numbers of the competition, it is possible to conclude that the big problem of the team has been, in fact, the attack, which is the second worst, having stopped to shake the opponent’s net in six matches. In their last confrontation, the team did not have a good performance, having missed many passes, finishing with only 38% possession of the ball even playing at home, and got the goal of tie already in the additions of the final stage. As principal, the club has performed well, and in this condition has one of the less leaked defenses. A 4-4-2 alignment was the formation of choice for Rodelin.

Bordeaux, as well as their opponents, did well in the first rounds of the French Championship, remaining unbeaten until the seventh round but failed to keep up the pace and are now out of six rounds, and in three of them could not take the zero of the score. In the last round, the team obtained a very bitter result in the house, since, although it did not make a great action, it was winning the match until the additions of the second time, when it suffered the goal of tie. Despite coming on low scorers, having conceded only one goal per game in four of the last five matches, the team’s defensive system is among the eight most leaked in the competition.

It is likely that the coach will keep the team in 4-3-3, with Malcolm in the offensive sector standing out.
