Match Date: 29 March 2014 (local time)

Venue: La Beaujoire-Louis-Fonteneau

 

Nantes snatched a crucial win against Montpellier to further move away from the relegation zone and somehow, ensure their survival next season. The narrow victory also ended Nantes’ s winless streak during its last 5 matches.

 

While it is true that the win gives a total boost to their confidence, Nantes cannot be complacent as anything is possible in football. A single mistake will pull them down and this might hamper their survival. Nantes can expect a difficult encounter against Bordeaux. The latter is one of the strongest clubs in the league and it shall not waste any opportunity to dominate and control the match.

 

Bordeaux comfortably sits at the 9th spot of the Ligue 1 table. It is almost assured of survival. Yet, securing a victory in the upcoming match will help them take the first step towards qualifying for the Europa League. It sounds a bit difficult, but certainly, this is possible.

 

Needless to say, Bordeaux is the match’s online betting favorite and is pitted to win at a decent value of 2.78 at 12BET.

 

Prediction: Bordeaux
