Pau vs Bordeaux Predictions and Best Odds

Bordeaux is looking to make a quick return to Ligue 1, but after suffering through a loss last week to league leaders Le Havre, they need to bounce back in a determined style.

Draw

There isn’t much history between these clubs. They have played only four times, and two of those games were friendlies with Bordeaux winning both of them. During the first part of the season, they drew 1-1 in Bordeaux. The visiting team has been in a good run of form since then, but with second place as the ultimate prize at this point in the season, Bordeaux needs to get some positive results to maintain that kind of pressure where it matters. Pau is tied for most draw games this season at eight, while Bordeaux had six.

Over 2.5 Goals

Bordeaux had nine over 2.5 goal matches this season, out of 12 played. But, that includes four in their last five matches. Even the one that was under the mark ended 1-1. Pau had eight ‘over’ matches, but more importantly, it’s about the stats when they are playing at home. They are 5-5 in that aspect, the same as Bordeaux when they are a guest team. In two official h2h matches, the one in the French Cup ended with four goals in the regular time of play.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

As the season is progressing, Bordeaux seems to show more instability in their backline. They have played BTTS in four out of their last five games, so predicting another game like that one, especially with Pau doing a good job as the host makes sense. The home team had four both teams scoring matches in their past five games, and two official games between these teams covered the bet.

Preview for the Match Pau versus Bordeaux with Team News

Pau

One of the most significant victories for Pau in their recent history was accomplished in 2020 when they beat Bordeaux in the French Cup, and then lost to PSG in the round of 16 when they had the highest attendance for their small stadium with more than 16 thousand people witnessing the Parisien victory by the score of 2-0. This season Pau is trying to stay in Ligue 2, they are five points clear from the relegation zone. Team captain Antoine Batisse, Pape Ibnou Ba, and Mayron George are injured.

Didier Tholot´s News:

After the three important points that Pau earned on their visit to Paris, the team needs to keep on picking up points. For the match against Bordeaux, the French coach will be without three players who have been important in the squad’s rotations. In the defensive line, Antoin Batisse will not be available. The attacking zone will not be complete, as Mayron George and Pape Ibnou Ba will also be ruled out for match day 22.

Bordeaux

This is a historic club that has won the French title on six occasions, the last time wasn’t that long ago, in 2009. But, those times seem like a distant past right now as Bordeaux is going through difficult times with their finances constantly in question. Currently, they are third in the rankings with the same amount of points as Sochaux who has a better goal difference. The top two teams will advance to Ligue 1 next season. Lucas Rocrou is the only player currently injured for the visiting team.

David Guion´s News:

The coach will have almost all his players available, the only absentee will be Lucas Rocrou, however the 19-year-old has not had many minutes in the season. Josh Maja will lead Bordeaux’s attack, which lost the last 3 points, and with it the second place in the standings. The fight for promotion is getting tighter and tighter, so every point from now on will be even more important.
