Bordeaux vs Lille: Prediction and Betting Tips
Bordeaux to build on their last win
Bordeaux booked their first win in five matches after returning from Troyes with a precious win in the last round. As a matter of fact, that win took Les Girondins out of the relegation zone as they leaped over Troyes. Still, Bordeaux need to put on a spell of wins to stay completely safe. To do that, the Marine and Whites need to find their maiden clean sheet of the season as they have none so far in Ligue 1.
However, Bordeaux have the best offensive record among all teams from the ninth position and further down. Still, it’s their defense that has done the damage as coach Petkovic’s team have conceded 40 goals in 18 matches. That’s the most goals by any team in Ligue 1 this season. In effect, major defensive adjustments must be made by Petkovic coming into this game.
Lille having a fine undefeated run
A very slow start by reigning champions Lille left them well off the pace from the top of the table. To be exact, one win from their first six matches, already left Les Dogues considerably behind leaders PSG. And halfway through the Ligue 1 season, the champion’s ambition now will be to play in Europe next season and nothing more.
Nevertheless, Lille are undefeated in the last six matches, winning two and drawing four. Despite not losing too many matches, Lille squandered too many leads during matches. To explain, in five consecutive matches from round 11 -15, Le Dogues were leading their opponents but still lost or drew in the end. However, seven points from their last three games seem to put coach Gourvennec’s team back on track.
Bordeaux vs Lille Prediction
One incredible statistic concerning Bordeaux and Lille is the high percentage of both teams scoring in their matches. To illustrate, Bordeaux’s 89% of home games saw BTTS happen and that is the highest percentage among Ligue 1 teams. While BTTS occurred in Lille’s 78% of away games which is the third-highest in the French league.
Moreover, Bordeaux’s 72% matches saw over 2.5 goals. On the other hand, Lille’s three of the last five games saw that number of goals. And the bookmakers are favoring these outcomes for this match.
As for our prediction, we think both teams will play to win. Surely Lille has a much more conservative style of play and their matches don’t produce too many goals. Hence we will back under 3.5 goals and a double chance combo for this match.
