After they lost their last 3 games in the league, Bordeaux will be facing a big challenge when they host the league leaders Nice at the Matmut Atlantique in the 19th round of the French top flight.
The hosts have been struggling with the results in recent weeks as Bordeaux managed to win only one game in their last 5 league fixtures. They lost their last three games in the league collecting a total of 4 points from a possible 15 in their last 5. Their last game was against Montpellier away from home where they were smashed by four goals to nil.
Bordeaux are sitting in 10th place in the league table with 24 points from 6 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses. They have scored 20 goals and conceded 26 since the start of the season.
Jérémy Menez joins Adam Ounas on the sidelines through suspension for at least one match after being shown a red card in the 4-0 defeat away to Montpellier. Maxime Poundjé, Thomas Touré, Cédric Carrasso and Youssouf Sabaly are also out for the last match before the break
Nice have been impressing everyone since the start of the season. The team are currently 4 points clear at the top of the table and they are the most in form team in the league in recent weeks. They managed to get through their last 5 league games without a loss, collecting 11 points from a possible 15 in that same period. Their last game was against Dijon at home where they won 2-1.
Nice are sitting at the top of the Ligue 1 table with 43 points from 13 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss. They have scored 34 goals and conceded 13 since the start of the season.
Ricardo Pereira is strongly expected to miss Wednesday’s trip to Bordeaux through injury, along with Lucien Favre’s usual absentees. However, Olivier Boscagli might return in time to feature at Maxime Le Marchand’s expense as the latter should not be ready to play two games in the space of three days.
