Our football match prediction:
Bordeaux and Monaco face each other at Stade Matmut-Atlantique in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Saturday’s program. Les Girondins suffered a 1-0 loss to Amiens at the weekend, with the team extending their winless run in Ligue 1 to three games. Bordeaux continue with their habit of producing fine displays at home ground, whilst their away record is anything but good. Les Girondins face a difficult task in Saturday’s football match against Monaco and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the match. Leonardo Jardim’s men desperately needed a win against Caen at the weekend and they managed to get one. Monaco are still in the race for the Ligue 1 trophy and we predict that they will adopt an attack-minded approach against Bordeaux. Both teams are likely to go for a win in the Stade Matmut-Atlantique clash and there is every chance both teams will find the net on Matchday 11.
