Bordeaux – Montpellier, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR BORDEAUX - MONTPELLIER
Bordeaux are a mid table team of Ligue 1 who mainly relies on their home games, where they have only 2 losses that have come a long time ago. Bordeaux, however, typically like many of the French teams, plays quite defensively and often makes draws, which currently leaves them with just eight wins of their 26 matches. Bordeaux overall is not in good shape They lost 2 times in a row to Strasbourg as one was for the Cup and in the last 7 games they have 1 win.
The situation in Montpellier is not much better. Of course, in the standings, they are ahead and have a chance for top 4 or top 5. The problem is that their game is not going well and this is probably one of their weakest periods in the season. Montpellier’s visits this season have always been unpredictable. They have several wins, a few losses and many draws in them, and it is not clear which face they will show now.
Here, too, we believe there will not be many goals. After all, two extremely defensive teams face themselves, which very rarely allow themselves to make furious attacks and free play. Everything in them is tactics, patience and a safe defense game, while their quality in attack is not particularly high. 2 of the last 3 home games of Bordeaux vs. Montpellier have finished with less than 3 goals and neither of the two teams is willing to lose. Prediction – Under 2.5 goals at 1.48.
- 6 of the last 8 matches of Bordeaux have completed under 1.5 goals
- 6 of the last 7 away games in Montpellier have completed under 2.5 goals
