What’s going on in Ligue 1? The star ensemble from Paris has so far had three springs. The starting places for the Champions League are currently surprisingly occupied by teams such as Angers and Nantes. On the 13th day of the game, the sixth-placed Bordeaux can now make the leap to second place in the league.
For Bordeaux but must exist in the away game at Nice. The hosts on the Côte d’Azur have recently licked blood again and won for the first time in five league games. For the Aiglons from Nice it is therefore important to build on the home win over Stade Reims in order to take a big step in the table as well.
With three points Nice would make up eight places in the Ligue 1 table and occupy fifth place in the table for now. The team of head coach Patrick Vieira does not want to miss the chance and therefore relies on the momentum. Girondins Bordeaux is not exactly in the foreground, considering how strongly the Blue-Whites have presented themselves on foreign terrain so far.
Thus, in Nice against Bordeaux, a prognosis on a winning team will probably be daring. Rather, we seem to be in this match a division of points obvious.
Liberation for Patrick Vieira and OGC Nice! In the last week, the Aiglons have made it 2-0 home win over Stade Reims for the time being from the crisis of form. Previously, Nice had been without competition six consecutive winless. In the fairly balanced situation in the Ligue 1, however, the weak start of the season for the Aiglons is to be taken.
Nice can make a big leap in the league table this morning and move from 13th place to fifth place. At home, the Aiglons picked ten points in six home games this season. The team of Patrick Vieira could not really build on the home strength of last season, even though the performances against Lille (1: 1), PSG (1: 4) and Marseille (1: 2) were praiseworthy despite the mixed results.
With Girondins Bordeaux the next difficult task is at home. In the last home game against Stade Reims, the Aiglons benefited mainly from the underdogs and could therefore dominate the game as desired. Nice won 2-0 at the end against the strongest defense of the Ligue 1.
In recent weeks, the military hospital of Vieira’s team has shrunk considerably. At home against Bordeaux only Ibrahim Cisse, Adam Ounas and Stanley N’Soki will be injured due to injury. Changes in the starting eleven can not be ruled out.
Many goals are not to be expected between the clubs. For the first time Vieira can fall back in the defense and in midfield on all his regulars. Since Nice was always struggling with injury problems, the current goal statistics should not be overstated.
In Girondins Bordeaux, the point yield can be seen after twelve matchdays. The blue and white are here beneficiaries of the weak start of the season of the European Cup aspirants and are among the top six Ligue 1 teams. With an away win at OGC Nice Bordeaux can jump for now for the second place in the table.
After two defeats in a row Girondins Bordeaux won last in the table third Nantes. At home, Bordeaux prevailed with a comfortable 2: 0 against the green-yellow. The double burden of the French League Cup has also been coped well in the meantime.
For Bordeaux it was only the second home win this season. Most points brought the Blue-Whites abroad. Behind PSG Bordeaux is the strongest away team of the Ligue 1. Away there were only defeats for Bordeaux against Lille (0: 3) and Angers (1: 3). In the recent away defeat in Lille Bordeaux remained for the first time this season without scoring in the foreign.
Winger Francois Kamano is the most valuable player in the blue-white ranks. With a total of 17 points scorer Kamano counted in the past season to the performers in the offensive. In contrast to other teams in Ligue 1, where the offensive game is usually pointed at individual players, the collective interaction can be seen in Bordeaux.
Head Coach Paulo Sousa can draw almost in full in the away game at Nice. Only players like Pablo Castro, Yacine Adli and Youssouf Sabaly are still on the injured list.
