Friday night football from Ligue 1 will be live from Bordeaux as the home side take on Nice at the Stade Jacques Chaban-Delmas. Bordeaux have been terrific at home this year losing only once since March. Managed by former France full back Willy Sagnol Bordeaux have shown themselves to be well coached defensively and with the exception of a 5-0 loss to league leading Lyon Bordeaux have only conceded eight goals in eight games while scoring sixteen. Top scorer Diabete is injured at the moment and likely to miss out tonight but with Toure and Rolan both capable of filling the void left by Diabete I think Bordeaux will be ok and should be able to get another home win here against a Nice side that really struggle away from home.
Nice have lost four of their last five away from home and really struggle to find the net on the road going scoreless in all four of those losses. Nice have a solid team though their position in the league is based on their strong home form. Carlos Eduardo is their main threat up front as the Brazilian playmaker has seven goals this season playing behind Bosetti or Bautheac. This is a tough ask for Nice as Bordeaux have won six of their nine home games and only lost once. I think on Friday Bordeaux look likely to make that seven wins from ten.
I love the value here on a home win. At evens Bordeaux just look the common sense play, yes they are missing their leading marksman but the team is defensively solid and with a number of goal threats from midfield they should be able to hit the net once or twice, which should be enough to get a win here against a Nice side that just dont travel well.
