Bordeaux vs Strasbourg
French Ligue 1 – Season 2017/18
Date: Friday, 8th December 2017
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Matmut Atlantique (Bordeaux).Inconsistency has dogged Bordeaux for much of the season and that’s why they come into this game in 11th position. The club are already 12 points from a top 4 place, and whilst nobody expects them to go down it does seem that Bordeaux’s season could be very unspectacular.They lost 3-2 in their last match to Dijon but will be happy to return back home where they have lost just 1 game this season. Bordeaux have won 70% of their total points at home.
All of the media turned their attention to Strasbourg where they stunned Ligue 1 by becoming the first team this season to beat the mighty PSG. A shock 2-1 win at home was rightly celebrated as if the club had won the league themselves. It was a much needed three points which put them two places above the relegation zone with 18 points.
The win was part of Strasbourg’s recent great form which has saw the club go unbeaten for 4 games in the league. They have lost just one game in their past 4 on the road and have been very impressive for the month of November, the question is how long will this form last?
Bordeaux vs Strasbourg: Head to Head
This is the first fixture between the teams in 9 years. Bordeaux have won the last 2 games when being at home. 4 of the last 10 fixtures either home or away have ended with the correct score of 1-1.
