Odds: 5/2 @ Bet 365

Remarkably transforming into one of France’s in from sides, Bordeaux will welcome Amiens to the Stade Matmut-Atlantique on Sunday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, coming off the back of a 1-0 win over Dijon in the Cup, Bordeaux are enjoying a very impressive transformation under Éric Bedouet. Now winning four of their last five matches and yet to be beaten in any competition since the end of October, another win on Sunday would see Les Girondins climb into the top half of the table for the first time this year. One man to watch for the hosts will be the inform Jimmy Briand. The 33-year-old veteran has now found the net in his last three Ligue 1 outings, including a goal against PSG last month.

As for the visitors, in stark contrast to Bordeaux, Amiens are enduring a very worrying run of form that now sees them at the heart of a relegation battle. Coming off the back of a 3-2 loss against Lyon last weekend, Christophe Pélissier men have now four of their last five matches across all competitions. Quickly falling down the table, it will be their recent defensive issue that is the biggest concern for fans around the Stade Crédit Agricole de la. Already conceding 30 goals this campaign, only rock bottom Guingamp hold a worse record at the back.
