Bordeaux and Lille square off in their final Ligue 1 clash of 2021 on Wednesday.

The Gerondins are looking confident after back-to-back wins in all competitions, including a 10-0 rout of Les Jumeaux M'Zouasia in the French Cup on Sunday.

It was their biggest victory in 56 years.

Lille, meanwhile, have flattered to deceive as the defending champions, languishing 11th in the league table with 25 points, 20 behind runaway leaders PSG.

But Jocelyn Gourvennec's side are unbeaten in 10 games in all competitions since a 2-1 loss to PSG in October, winning seven times, including a 3-1 win over Auxerre in a cup game at the weekend.

In the last 47 clashes, the spoils are equally shared, with Bordeaux and Lille winning 16 times against each other.

However, Lille have won each of their last four clashes against Bordeaux after losing twice in succession in 2018.
