Match Preview

The Girondins welcome Montpellier HSC to the Matmut Atlantique on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. These sides played out one of the games of the season in Ligue 1 when they faced each other in September. Montpellier overturned a 1-2 halftime deficit in the second half to lead 3-2 in the closing minutes only for Samuel Kalu to rescue a point with a late equaliser for Bordeaux.

FC Girondins Bordeaux come into the match on a run of six league games without a win having also failed to score in each of their last two league matches. They have picked up just two points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Le club au scapulaire lost their last league match away to Paris Saint Germain. Expected goals of 2.1 to 0.8 in favour of Paris Saint Germain indicates perhaps it was a fair result even though the scoreline was a tad harsh.

Jean Onana will be thinking back to his missed header in the opening minute of the game. It was Les Girondins only big chance of the match and maybe they could have got something out of the game had they shocked PSG with the early goal. The final score of the match was 3-0.

Hwang Ui-Jo is FC Girondins Bordeaux’s top scorer with ten goals in Ligue 1 this season and is the 2.37/1 favourite to score against Montpellier HSC on Sunday.

Their opponent on Sunday, Montpellier HSC, come into the match on a run of three league games without a win having also failed to score in each of their last two. They have picked up four points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Paladins’ last league match, at home to OGC Nice, ended in a dull 0-0 draw. Expected goals of 2.6 to 0.7 in favour of Montpellier indicates they probably deserved more than a point from the match.

Les Pailladins were awarded a penalty on the half-hour mark but Téji Savanier failed to score the resulting spot-kick for his side. Les Pailladins’ finishing continued to let them down as they created 24 chances worth 2.6xG, yet failed to score against the ten men of Nice.

Savanier has six goals for Montpellier in Ligue 1 this season and is 3.25/1 to score against FC Girondins Bordeaux on Sunday.
