Bordeaux vs Montpellier Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Bordeaux have been in good form and are expected to beat Montpellier when both teams clash in the French Ligue 1 at the Stade Matmut-Atlantique. Les Girondins are priced at 2.38 to emerge victorious against the visitors who have lost their last two matches. The hosts have kept a clean sheet in three of their last four and are also tipped to earn a win to nil at 3.60.

FC Girondins de Bordeaux Form & Team News


Bordeaux have had an inconsistent season but have maintained decent home form. They have won three of their last four matches at the Stade Matmut-Atlantique, keeping three clean sheets in that run.

Les Girondins are coming off a 1-0 defeat away at Nantes in their previous Ligue 1 outing. It was a difficult afternoon for Eric Bedouet's team who were second best throughout the contest.

Bordeaux are usually solid defensively at home thanks to the exploits of Maxime Poundje and Vukasin Jovanovic at centre back. They also have some quality in attack with Jimmy Briand and Samuel Kalu.

Montpellier HSC Form & Team News


Montpellier have been on a poor run of form, claiming just one win in their last 12 matches across all competitions. They have lost their last two matches and have been steadily sliding down the table.

Michel Der Zakarian's men were beaten at home last time out in Ligue 1. Goals from Daniel Congre and Gaetan Laborde were not enough as they fell to a 4-2 defeat to Reims.

Montpellier have struggled for goals on their travels lately having found the net just three times in their last seven away matches. They have failed to score in four matches in that run while strikers Laborde and Andy Delort have combined for just one goal in seven.

Bordeaux vs Montpellier Head-to-Head


Bordeaux have earned 22 wins and seven draws while Montpellier have been victorious 11 times in 40 previous fixtures. Les Girondins have also won four of their last seven home matches against Montpellier.

Bordeaux vs Montpellier Match Up


Bordeaux often keep things tight at the back when they play at home with Poundje and Jovanovic guiding them to three clean sheets in their last four matches. They also carry a significant threat going forward with Kalu and Briand.

Montpellier, on the other hand, have failed to score in four of their last seven away matches. Laborde and Delort have also found things difficult away from home with just one goal between them in seven appearances.

Verdict 


Bordeaux often do their best work in front of their fans having won three of their last four home matches. Given Montpellier's terrible away form, I am predicting a win for the hosts at odds of 2.38.
