Free Predictions for Lille vs Bordeaux
Lille looks to make another stab at top five in Ligue 1 this weekend after the international break. The hosts are only two points shy of the achievement and this fixture against struggling Bordeaux could be their chance ahead of a tight Ligue 1 schedule. Read our free predictions for this game below.
Lille to win @ 1/2 (1.50)
Lille should be the winner in this fixture if all goes well for the hosts. They face a struggling outfit in Bordeaux hence should capitalize on both home support and woeful defending on the visitors's side to collect all points in this Ligue 1 duel. The fact that Lille needs just two points to compete in top five is another motivation and while Bordeaux has slim chance of surviving the drop with nine games to go, winning this game after failing to do so in the reverse encounter will be difficult.
No goals on both ends @ 17/20 (1.85)
We are tipping a clean sheet win for Lille. They have the backing of home fans and a better form compared to last-placed Bordeaux ahead of this Ligue 1 duel. We are expecting goals on only one side of the pitch in this match.

Lille vs Bordeaux Preview: Lille Looking to Redeem Dwindling Fortunes
Lille has been far from impressive this season despite being the title holders. The hosts have, however, found themselves in the second half of the season. A shaky start to reign for head coach, Jocelyn Gourvennec, was a big worry for the hosts. However, the French tactician have steadied the ship to get Lille back on track and now, the title holders can fight for something with only nine games to play.
Winning this game will be huge for Lille as it could see them displace Strasbourg from the fifth place. Lille has been the dominant team in this duel, winning 11, drawing 3 and losing 6 of the last 20 meetings with Bordeaux. The visitors have failed to win in their last 7 Ligue 1 games, during which they lost five games and failed to score in four outings.
Lille predicted lineup–Jardim, Gudmundsson, Xeka, Fonte, Djalo, Fonte, Andre, Onana, Bamba, Gomes, David and Ouattara.
Bordeaux predicted lineup–Costil, Gregersen, Marcelo, Ahmedhodzic, Mensah, Ignatenko, Guilavogui, Fransergio, Hwang, Mara and Elis.
