Our Free Picks for Bordeaux vs Lille
Lille’s troubled start to the new season seemed like the party was spoilt already for the reigning champions. However, a strong resurgence has seen Lille go unbeaten in the last ten matches. Will they keep the momentum going away from home in this trip to Bordeaux? We have prepared a detailed analysis of our top picks for this game as follows:
Lille to score first @ (1.57)
Lille is our favourite team to find the net first in this match. The visitors have improved massively and look better defensively than Bordeaux. On the flip-side, Bordeaux has only bagged two victories in the last 18 matches, or rather since the start of the season. A poor defence that has denied Bordeaux a clean sheet in 18 matches played so far this season is why we think Lille should find the net first in this match.
Lille to win the game @ (1.85)
Lille is also our favourite team to win this match. The reigning champions have all it takes to edge out struggling Bordeaux on matchday. The visitors defeated Bordeaux in the last five meetings and so, we don’t think they will have any trouble getting their fifth consecutive Ligue 1 victory against Bordeaux in this match.
