La Rochelle vs Bordeaux Predictions


La Rochelle are the form team on the continent at the moment and will be the overwhelming favourites to win this match at home. Bordeaux are a good side and with a bit of luck they may be able to get the jump on their opponents.

  • La Rochelle have won their last 7 matches at home in all competitions.
  • La Rochelle have covered the -10.5 handicap in 4 of their last 5 home matches.
  • La Rochelle have covered the -10.5 handicap in 4 of the last 6 head-to-head matches.
  • Bordeaux have lost 10 of their 14 matches this season in the Top 14.

Head-to-Head


La Rochelle have a 12-7 lead in the last 19 clashes in the head-to-head matchup.

La Rochelle cruised to a 36-6 win at Bordeaux in the last match.

La Rochelle Form


The Maritimes have won the European Championship this season and qualified in second place on the Top 14 table where they won seventeen matches.

Recent form has seen them beat Toulon 23-8 away before losing 42-31 at Montpellier. A 27-26 away win at Leinster in the Champions Cup Final would be their next result.

They overcame Stade Francais 14-10 at home in their last match. A match between two top sides battled it out where the defences reigned supreme. La Rochelle were a bit off their game but rallied in the second half as a late try with five minutes to go handed them the scrappy win.

We are expecting the same squad to be available and await further team news at this stage.

Bordeaux Form


Les Daimers were the lowest ranked team in the knockouts with thirteen wins as they finished in sixth place. They have lost ten of their thirteen away matches this season.

A 31-17 loss at Toulouse was followed by a 28-0 home win over Pau. They would then fall in Toulon and lose 35-19 subsequently.

Their last match was an unexpected 32-25 away win over Lyon. Lyon were the favourites at home but a plucky second half display saw Bordeaux rally to a superb win. A last-minute try allowed them to claim a famous win and advance to the semi-final.

We await team news at this moment but expect the same squad to be available.

Verdict

La Rochelle should prove to be too good on home soil and I expect them to power their way to victory and cover the handicap.
