Bordeaux vs Le Mans Match Preview
Bordeaux host Le Mans for their Coupe de France clash on Friday evening hoping to start the new year in good spirits and put a disappointing end of 2019 behind them, where they dropped points to Marseille (3-1), Strasbourg (0-1), and Rennes (1-0) while also crashing out of League Cup in the hands of Brest (2-0).
Girondins will now be desperate for a pick-me-up in an attempt to bounce to the winning ways, having connected a rock-solid streak since late October and only seeing it ended by Racing. They based such success on a tough defensive approach before anything else and we’ll now surely see them motivated to do the same.
Le Mans have, on the other hand, picked it up lately and bagged three wins in their last four outings, only seeing PSG (1-4 in League Cup) interrupt the streak. They beat Les Herbiers (1-2), Orleans (3-2), and Paris FC (0-3) along the way and building on such displays will be crucial if they’re to catch up with Ligue 2 top 5.
However, Blood and Golds have struggled for consistency on the road and this could be even more worrying ahead of the trip to Matmut-Atlantique Stadium. They’ve been conceding goals quite regularly and consequently struggled to climb the table, which has few believing in an upset on the day.
We will thus back Bordeaux to rediscover their fine form at the back and secure their ticket to the next round with confidence, going for a Home win to Nil at 6/5 with BetVictor and hoping for a rather one-sided contest here.
Still, we don’t feel Girondins will be able to score at will and we still expect Le Mans to show what they’re made of. With that in mind, we’re also sticking with another low-scoring contest here as we back Under 2.5 Goals FT at 17/20 with Paddy Power.
