The Ligue 1 is back in action with another set of fixtures this weekend as Monaco take on Bordeaux on Sunday. Both teams have been inconsistent this season and will want to win this game.

Bordeaux are in 16th place in the Ligue 1 standings and have endured a difficult league campaign so far. The away side held Rennes to a 1-1 draw last weekend and will want a similar result from this fixture.

Monaco, on the other hand, are in eighth place in the league table at the moment and have not been at their best this season. Les Monegasques eased past Clermont in their previous league game and will be confident ahead of this match.
