Bordeaux vs Monaco

Monaco travel away to Bordeaux as one of the form teams in the division, not losing for 7 straight games now and that has helped them to 2nd spot in the table with just 3 points behind leaders Nice and 1 point ahead of defending champions PSG. Monaco great success has been due to a good defensive record, but more importantly because of a great offensive record. They have now scored 49 goals in 16 games, which is an average of 3 goals per game. They have just come out of a 5-0 rout of Bastia last weekend, and will be aiming to replicate the success after resting a lot of their key players in their mid-week Champions League loss to Leverkusen. Garillo and Falcao have smashed 7 goals, Lemar 6 goals, Gemain and Fabinho 5 and Boschilla 4 goals.

Bordeaux have been pretty average this season with 6 wins from 14 games, and find themselves in 7th spot. They have been decent at the back leaking not more than 1 goal per game, and have put in solid performances against most of the big teams. They have only lost twice in their last 10 games, which showcases some strong showing that they have had in their recent run of games. Bordeaux have had the better of Monaco in their last 6 games, with 4 wins and 2 draws in their last outings but Jardeim has changed this side to be a more attacking one this season, and this might be a different kettle of fish. Bordeaux will not make it easy for Monaco, and that shows us that we are in for a great match today.

Over 2.5 goals in the match.
