Bordeaux vs Nantes Prediction 21 August 2020

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Stade de Bordeaux
Match date: 21.08.2020 at 18:00

In the debut match of the first round of Ligue 1, the strong middle peasants Bordeaux and Nantes will face off. The teams are very similar in their conditions and also in the way they play and that is why we expect this match to be pretty interesting but not very efficient. 

Let me remind you that the previous French championship ended ahead of schedule due to the coronavirus - according to its results, Bordeaux finished twelfth with 37 points and a goal difference of 40:34. In the summer off-season, the Girondins managed to hold four control meetings with Angers (1: 1), Saint-Etienne (2: 4), Toulouse (0: 0) and Reims (4: 0).

Thirteenth position, the same 37 points and a rather modest scored-to-missed ratio of 28:31 - Nantes also turned out to be not strong or ambitious enough to fight for something more than the place in the middle of the standgins. In the summer, the Canaries won over Stade Nyon (6: 0) and Le Havre (3: 1), as well as gained a goalless draw with Anderlecht.

Both teams are worthy of each other, so I don't see a clear favorite here - maybe I'll give a slight advantage to the owners. Both Bordeaux and Nantes will not try to attack too much - of this we are sure and, as a result, we are unlikely to see many effective strikes.
