Bordeaux enjoyed a great start to the season but have lost 4 of their last 5 matches to drop to 9th in the Ligue 1 table. They have 16 points from 12 matches with equal number of wins, draws, and losses. Defence is a huge worry for the hosts who have already shipped 18 goals – the highest by any side in the top-12. With the side set to face a number of sides from the bottom half of the table from now till Christmas which means the side will look to climb up the ladder. The hosts have failed to score in their last 3 matches in Ligue 1 and scoring goals remain their biggest challenge. A win in the weekend would help them stay in touch with the top six but can they brush off the recent slump?
It won’t be an easy task for the hosts as their visitors this weekend are the in-form team. Marseille are 4th in the Ligue 1 table with 24 points from 12 matches and just 4 points separate them from the second-placed AS Monaco. They have hit a purple patch in the domestic competition, although they have been struggling in the Europa League competition. A 5-0 win against Caen was achieved before the break which followed a win at Lille and an impressive draw at home to leaders Paris Saint-Germain. They were seconds away from stunning PSG only for a last gasp Edinson Cavani free-kick to deny them. They are undefeated in 11 of their last 12 away matches in Ligue 1 and look set for another win. Their scoring form saw them score at least 2 goals in 6 of their last 7 Ligue 1 matches.
