Our Friday night football fix comes from Bordeaux, where Paris St Germaine take on the home side in the Stade Jacques. This game represents an interesting match up, as Bordeaux have had a mediocre start to the season, but they host a PSG team that have been anything but impressive thus far this year.
The PSG manager Laurent Blanc will have to deal with alot of his players coming back from International duty, something that can often disrupt a team's preparation and with short rest and an early game on Friday, there is a chance that this will cause problems for PSG. On the football front, PSG have assembled a superb side from the back with Thiago Silva and Alex to a midfield of Moura, Pastore and Verazzi and a top three of Lavezzi, Cavani and Ibrahimovich, there are nothing but stars in this side. Although they have not been clicking as of yet, it would appear as if its just a matter of time.
Bordeaux will try to play a compact style of football and hit PSG on the counter attack. Its a tactic used often by smaller teams against the bigger teams and so far this year, teams in Ligue 1 have been successful in frustrating PSG for long periods of matches. With the exception of their last game, PSG have struggled to put the ball in the net and Bordeaux do not concede many goals at home. The game itself may be a cat and mouse game and I think Bordeaux would be happy with a point.
I'm going to take PSG to sneak in a win here, the price of 10/11 is too tempting. When you look at both teams, there is such a vast difference in quality, especially up front, that I think PSG are just bound to break down Bordeaux eventually. This one may be a nailbiter, but I think Cavani or Ibrahimovich will net a winner. Take PSG and start our weekend off with a winner. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
