The Great Danes are hoping to stay atop of the Ligue 1 with a win at Matmut Atlantique on Wednesday. Take a look at our Bordeaux vs Lille Preview and get the latest stats and news.
Bordeaux Recent Form & Team News
Midtable Bordeaux’s 2-1 loss in their previous Ligue 1 outing saw their four-game unbeaten top-flight run come to an end (W3, D1), but made it seven straight second halves without a loss (2H: W2, D5). Here, Les Girondins will be desperate to avoid conceding first, as they have lost every fixture in which they’ve conceded the opener this league campaign (L8).
Aiming to complete a run on three consecutive L1 home wins for the first time in over a year, the hosts are usually strong from the off, as Bordeaux have registered a first-half clean sheet in 63.64% of their L1 home matches. Subsequently, a league-high 54.55% of their top-flight home fixtures have featured a goalless first half.
Player to watch: In-form Hwang Ui-jo has averaged one goal per game across Bordeaux’s last four L1 home outings.
Jean-Louis Gasset will be without Otavio (Achilles tendon) and Mehdi Zerkane (muscle).
Lille Recent Form & Team News
A return of just one loss from Lille’s previous 12 L1 outings (W9, D2, L1) has taken them to top spot. A lot of that success is down to their habit of scoring first, which they’ve done in a league-high 72.73% of their top-flight fixtures this campaign (W13, D3). In turn, they have returned a superb HT record of: W12, D6, L4.
Hoping to extend their current run of four-straight L1 away victories, the visitors have been dominant after the break when playing away. Indeed, Lille are the only L1 side yet to lose a second half away from home so far (2H: W4, D6), but one issue recurring is they’ve failed to score in the opening 15 minutes on the road this campaign.
Player to watch: Jonathan Bamba has been Lille’s first goalscorer with five of his six L1 goals – all six have come in the 30‘-60’ minute period.
Hot streak: The last five top-flight H2Hs have seen the home side on the day take a one-goal margin lead at HT.
Christophe Galtier cannot count on Benjamin Andre (suspension) and Burak Yilmaz (calf).
