Girondins de Bordeaux
Bordeaux will be hoping to return to winning ways here following the 3-1 Ligue 1 defeat last time out to Montpellier.
In that match, Girondins de Bordeaux had 57% possession and 13 attempts at goal with 3 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Girondins de Bordeaux was Ui-Jo Hwang (28'). For their opponents, Montpellier got 23 shots on goal with 9 of them on target. Junior Sambia (35'), Gaëtan Laborde (58') and Stephy Mavididi (69') scored for Montpellier.
It’s been all too rare in recent times that Girondins de Bordeaux have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Les Girondins have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 9 goals along the way. Regardless, it remains to be seen if the trend will continue on in this upcoming match.
Going into this encounter, Girondins de Bordeaux have not won at home in their last 4 league games. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.
Following on from a loss in their previous game against RC Lens in Ligue 1 action, Strasbourg and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that match, Strasbourg had 59% possession and 17 shots on goal with 5 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Strasbourg was Jean-Ricner Bellegarde (20'). On the other side, RC Lens had 12 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. Massadio Haïdara (5') and Seko Fofana (40') scored for RC Lens.
During their six previous matches, Thierry Laurey's Strasbourg have seen their goal attempts be successful 5 times thus giving them a goals scored per game average of 0.83.
Taking a look at their past results, Strasbourg:
- haven't been beaten by Girondins de Bordeaux when they've played them away from home in the last 3 league games.
- are without an away win for the past 2 league games.

Team News: Bordeaux
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just one fitness concern for the Bordeaux gaffer Jean-Louis Gasset to be concerned about due to a largely intact group. Otávio (Achilles tendon rupture) is out of contention.
Team News: Strasbourg
Strasbourg boss Thierry Laurey has to choose a team with limited availability. Mohamed Simakan (Arthroscopie) and Mehdi Chahiri (Knee Injury) miss out here.
We believe that Strasbourg and Bordeaux could well end up finding themselves level here, with both teams capable of netting.
It appears that a draw might be on the cards. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very even match with a 1-1 score draw at the end of the 90 minutes.
