Inconsistent Bordeaux take on Nice at the Matmut Atlantique on Friday evening. The hosts have struggled for form all season long, but do head into this match on the back of a 4-2 victory over Guingamp last weekend. That result lifted Bordeaux into the top half of the table, a position they have seldom been in this campaign.
Nice, on the other hand, sit third in the standings and have a chance to close the gap between themselves and second-placed Monaco to three points, at least for 24 hours, if they win here. Claude Puel’s side have, however, failed to win their last two league outings, after losing to Monaco and being held to a 1-1 draw with Marseille.
Nice have fared well against Bordeaux though; they thrashed them 6-1 when these two sides met at the Allianz Riviera earlier this season.
