Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Stade de Bordeaux
Match date: 18.03.2017 at 18:00

On March 18 2017 at 18:00 in the regular game of the 30th matchday of the French Ligue 1 at the Stade de Bordeaux the local club with the same name plays against Montpellier.

Bordeaux are known to be the middle-peasants of the national elite division and in the current season they show noticeable progress. The latest games weren’t very easy for the team and Bordeaux lost points in most of them. Anyway, 9 games before the end of the season they are on the 6th position in the standings with 43 points and scored one goal more then they conceded. In the latest matches Bordeaux outplayed Toulouse and Guingamp, shared the points with Rennes and Lyon and lost to PSG.

As for Montpellier, they scored more goals compared to Bordeaux, yet they are to as reliable in defense and that’s why they conceded 13 goals more compared to their competitors in the forthcoming match. Moreover, the loss to Nantes 2:3 in the previous match was the second one in the latest three games. Before that Montpellier drew Guingamp at home and lost to Nice in the away match. Montpellier are 10 points below Bordeaux and take the 13th position in the standings 5 points below the relegation zone.

The history of the latest games played between the teams shows the advantage of Bordeaux as they won three of the latest five matches against Montpellier. We must also remind you that in the first round game of the national championship in the middle of December Montpellier won at home with the devastating 4:0. Anyway, even though Bordeaux are not stable enough in the games on their home ground, they still only lost once to Montpellier at the Stade de Bordeaux in their history and it happened in far 2003. We think that in the upcoming game the hosts will manage to avoid a loss.
