Bordeaux vs Strasbourg will be a close encounter. Bordeaux are going through a shaky period of late. Jean-Louis Gasset's side have lost eight of their last ten games in all competitions and are slowly slipping down the Ligue 1 table.

Their latest defeat to Montpellier last weekend subjugated them to 13th in Ligue 1 standings.

Their opponents Strasbourg come into this game on the back of consecutive defeats in their last two league outings.


Bordeaux vs Strasbourg Head-To-Head

Strasbourg hold a significant advantage in this fixture having won four out of their last five outings against Bordeaux.

Interestingly, it was only in their most recent outing in December last year that Bordeaux managed to snap their four-match losing run against Strasbourg.

Nonetheless, both clubs have suffered dwindling fortunes in recent times. It will be interesting to see who comes out on top this time.

Bordeaux vs Strasbourg Prediction

Strasbourg interestingly hold an advantage in this fixture and will look to forget the outcome of their last outing against Bordeaux. For the home team, they still have a lot to prove as to why they are one of the best clubs in France. Laurent Koscielny and co. will have to seriously turn around their fortunes if they aim to finish in the top-ten.

Prediction: Bordeuax 1-2 Strasbourg
