Bordeaux vs Lyon 01/11/2020
With just 26 points after 19 matches, Bordeaux is closer to the relegation places but they have been playing great at the Matmut Atlantique in front of 40,000 of their loyal supporters. The Girondins have won three of their last four home games with wins against Nantes, Nimes and Monaco. However, their current league form overall is not that great with just one win in their last five matches. Bordeaux has not won a league game since early December when they defeated Nimes, 6-0. Hoping for a fresh start to the second half of the season, Bordeaux will have to rely on their two deadly forwards, Nicolas de Preville and Josh Maja.
Players to Watch: Nicolas de Preville (5 goals, 3 assists), Josh Maja (5 G, 2 A), Jimmy Briand (4 G, 1 A), Yacine Adli (3 G, 3 A), Hwang Ui-jo (3 G, 2 A).
On the decline since winning seven straight Ligue 1 titles in the 2000s plus the massive improvement of PSG, Lyon has managed to finish in the top five every season. However, the Kids are in danger of finally becoming a mid-table club with their current form. The seven-time champions are currently 12th in the league with just 26 points. It is their lowest tally after 19 games since 2014 when they finished fifth. Lyon has to start turning things around at the start of the decade against Bordeaux. The good news for Lyon is they have Bordeaux’s number with 14 wins and 63 goals scored at the Malmut Atlantique in Ligue 1, more than any other club.
Players to Watch: Moussa Dembele (10 goals), Thiago Mendes (5 assists), Houssem Aouar (2 G, 3 A), Lucas Tousart (2 G, 2 A), Betrand Traore (3 A).
