Bordeaux - Monaco

PICK: Monaco AH -0,5 @2,12 SBO 3/10

Match between 7th and 2nd placed team in French Ligue 1, will be played on Stade Matmut-Atlantique in Bordeaux. Weather is clear, with 11°C.


Bordeaux is coming to match after disappointing defeat against Lille at home (0-1). Otherwise they looked pretty solid at home, as they lost only once before that this season. But anyway it needs to be said, that those positive results weren't against teams like Monaco, Nice, PSG, Lyon, Rennes... so tough home matches are still in front of them. Rolan is still doubtful which means that we'll probably see Menez with Laborde from 1st minute. Injured Poundje, Toure and Carasso will miss this match as well.

Jardim played with many rotations in midweek Champions league match, as they didn't need points. Subašić and Mbappe-Lottin are doubtful, but I think that at least Croatian goalkeeper will be ready for that match. We can expect the strongest squad of Monaco. They are enjoying in amazing season so far, and in this round Nice is going to Paris, where they could surprise Parisians. That means that Monaco can win some points in battle of those three clubs. 

Monaco's style of football with many attacks throw both wings will cause big problems to Bordeaux, who is one of the teams which is pretty poor at covering wing positions. Another strong point of Monaco are set-pieces from which they've already scored some goals, and also indirect set-pieces, where they are really strong with Glik and Jamerson who scored 4 goals this season. In my opinion, Monaco will be motivated to take advantage in fight for 1st spot and they will do it.

FT: 0-4
