Reason For Bordeaux VS Paris SG Betting Tips

PSG may be having a poor season by their standards, but Unai Emery’s men are still on course to complete a domestic treble. That’s something they’ve managed to achieve in back to back seasons under Laurent Blanc. A third clean sweep in a row would be a very impressive achievement, but they’ve still got plenty of work to do first.

The French champions are facing a stern challenge for the Ligue 1 title, while they have a tough trip to Bordeaux to negotiate before they can make a fourth consecutive League Cup final. Could Les Girondins shock the tournament favourites with a victory on Tuesday night?

PSG are heavy favourites here, despite Bordeaux having home advantage to boost their chances. However, home advantage has been an important factor for Les Girondins this season, as they’ve played at the Stade Matmut Atlantique in the last two rounds, scoring three times in each. That includes a victory over high flying Nice, who are currently above the Parisians in the table.

Could that scoring form help Bordeaux to cause a big upset against the tournament favourites? That’s where their home advantage should help, as PSG have been vulnerable on their travels this season. They’ve conceded 80% of their goals in Ligue 1 away from home. They’ve also let in a goal per game on the road, shipping a goal in 55% of their outings.

Bordeaux have a hit and miss scoring record in the league, but in the cup it’s a completely different story. They’ve been lethal here in recent Coupe de la Ligue matches, while their good record stretches back well beyond that. Since 2007, they’ve scored in every home League Cup game they’ve played. On top of that, these two have been quite goal friendly in their recent meetings. Four of the last five encounters have seen both teams score, including the last three at Bordeaux. That’s why we’re backing both teams to score here, at 5/6 with bet365.

Head To Head

PSG have won three of their last five trips to Bordeaux. The French champions have also scored two or more goals in five of their last six encounters with Bordeaux.
