Bordeaux vs Nantes Prediction and Betting Preview 21 Aug 2020

Here's our Bordeaux vs Nantes Prediction analysis: The French Ligue 1 is finally back and better! With the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus earlier in March, sporting activities across Europe were crippled. French football was no different as action was immediately brought to a halt.
Match status: 2020/21 Ligue 1 - Matchweek 1
Venue: Matmut Atlantique (Bordeaux)
Following months of deliberation, FFP resolved to end the 2019/2020 season abruptly with only 28 matched played. However, after a five-month hiatus, the Ligue 1 will be returning to our screens on Friday evening for a new season – Bordeaux and Nantes getting things rolling at the Matmut Atlantique.

Bordeaux will be absolutely gutted with their league performances last term, failing to mount a title challenge as previously expected. In fact, despite their lofty aspirations, Les Girondins were left in turmoil, finishing in the bottom-half of the standings.

Having failed to get their wits about them, managing a measly 37 points from 28 games, the Girondins could have no complaints about their struggles. Nonetheless, with a new campaign on the horizon, Gasset’s men will be gunning for victory over Nantes here, to get their season off to a flyer.

Bordeaux vs Nantes Team News

The city of Bordeaux is expected to be buzzing on Friday evening when they play host to Nantes in the opening fixture of the 2020/2021 season. Fans forced to endure months without domestic league football, they will be delighted to watch their favorite teams dazzle once again.

Struggling to strut couple of impressive displays on the trot, Bordeaux endured a torrid time last season, and will be looking to bounce back this term. Once considered French giants, Les Girondins are looking to reclaim their spot at the top of French football.

Following their previous disastrous campaign, Bordeaux decided to part ways with erstwhile manager Paulo Sousa in early August, picking out Jean Louis Gasset to take over the reins. The board was far from pleased with Sousa’s handling of the club, forcing their hand to kick him out.

Ardent Bordeaux fans will acknowledge Jean Louis Gasset as a household name at the Matmut Atlantique, having acted as Laurent Blanc’s right-hand man in 2009, as both men led Les Girondins to a surprise Ligue 1 triumph.

With the experienced manager now back around town, the club will be reminiscing the absolute scenes that unfolded when they strolled to top-flight success that year. They will be hoping their new French gaffer will lead them to great feats this season, probably a surprise title challenge.

Meanwhile, Nantes must have been delighted by their performances the previous season. Garnering as many points as Bordeaux, Les Canaris finishe 13th on the standings – one considered a great feat for the club, by their standards.

With a new campaign around the corner, Nantes will be looking to replicate last term’s resilient displays to achieve a comfortable mid-table finish. With some more drive, there is no doubt that this side has what it takes to finish in the top-half come the end of the season.

Bordeaux vs Nantes Predictions

Taking pre-season games into context, Nantes have been the better side. The Yellow House emerged unbeaten from their three matches – two of which ended in victories. In sharp contrast, Bordeaux failed to register a single win, recording two draws and a huge 4-2 defeat to Saint-Etienne.

As such, it goes without saying that the visitors are heading here in tip-top form. Itching to pick from where they left off in the off-season, count on Nantes to deliver a win here, perhaps via a narrow margin.
