Monaco are playing at home against Bordeaux on Saturday in search of a fourth consecutive win as a host in the Ligue 1. The series of good results helped The Monégasques to climb to the 16th place in the standings, six points away from the relegation zone. It’s too early to say that Monaco coped with the crisis from the beginning of the season because if we exclude the victory over Lyon, the wins against Nantes and Toulouse are not a surprise. However, if we compare the squads of Monaco and Bordeaux, the home team have more quality in almost every position, and The Girondins will have a tough away fixture on Saturday.
After the failure during the week against Montpellier, the board of Bordeaux decided to change the head coach of the team. It’s expected that the ex-manager of Leicester and Swansea – Paulo Sousa, to be appointed to lead The Girondins, but It’s highly unlikely that this will have a positive effect for the game on Saturday. Bordeaux have just one win in the previous ten away fixtures in Ligue 1, although they didn’t concede more than two goals in any of these fixtures. A significant reason for the lack of results of The Girondins is the absence of forwards. Bordeaux couldn’t overcome the transfer of Malcom, and are on the last place in scored goals in away games.
The difference between both sides is noticeable, and we think that the home team will not have a problem to take the three points on Saturday. Monaco also don’t score much and had more than two goals in just one game since the start of the season. I will back Monaco to Win and Under 4.5 Goals, with Monaco 2-0 Correct Score.
