Struggling Bordeaux go to the Stade Francis-Le Blé on Saturday and hope for a positive result

David Guion’s men were held to a disappointing draw against FC Lorient in their last fixture, he will be keen to improve on that in this game.

Also, when you suffer 12 defeats in the last 19 meetings, it should come as no surprise that your team is very much struggling at the bottom of the League. But that is the situation that Bordeaux find themselves in. With a twentieth position in the league and 5 wins, 19 losses and 13 draws, they currently have 28 points in the League having won five meetings, drawn 13 fixtures, and lost 19 games.

Bordeaux have had a disappointing run of performances on the road, having won two matches, drawn six matches, and lost 10 games of their 18 League matches on the road this season.

Bordeaux will have 31 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Bordeaux may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.
