Full Time: 0 - 1

Both Team To Score Tip: YES

Reason For Nantes VS Bordeaux Betting Tips

Both Nantes and Bordeaux are in strong form ahead of their meeting this weekend with both sides likely to end the 2016/17 with decent top-half finishes in Ligue 1. The away side are 7 points ahead of their hosts, but it would be no surprise to see that cut following this Sunday’s game. Nantes have quietly been climbing the table in recent weeks, despite not being among the bigger scoring teams in the division.

Nantes’ have managed to find the net only 31 times from 32 games and their top scorer is Emiliano Sala, who has managed only 9 strikes this season. Nonetheless, they sit proudly in 8th position and could realistically overcome St Etienne who are 3 points above them going into the final 6 games, although the side in green and white do have a game in hand.

Bordeaux meanwhile had at one stage of this season hoped to qualify for next season’s Europa League by clinching 4th place, but Lyon are now 5 points clear of them. It would be a big upset for them to catch them now, but Lyon were the victims of a shock result at the weekend when lowly Lorient managed to beat them 4-1. Bordeaux’s top scorer is Diego Rolan, who has been in superb form all season, even though he only has 9 goals so far. Bordeaux have managed to share the goals around their side throughout the campaign.

With both sides in similar form we expect this match to be a close one. Bordeaux have an incentive to win, knowing that Lyon look to be wobbling after last weekend’s dismal defeat and the fact that they have a Europa League tie to contend with.

Our advice is to back a Both Teams To Score Yes bet at odds of 3/4 with bet365.

For our correct score prediction, we think the match will finish 1-1, a bet which is valued at 5/1 also with bet365.
