Bordeaux - Marseille: who will break the deadlock?
The last five meetings have all ended in draws
ADVERSAIRE - Friday, February 16, 2018 - 17:00
The last five meetings between Marseille and Bordeaux have ended without a winner.
This weekend is a big one: Gus Poyet's squad travel to face Olympique de Marseille, a game for which they have been preparing hard.
Bordeaux are the form team of the moment
In recent years, Marseille and Bordeaux have cancelled each other out. Our last five meetings have all ended either 0-0 or 1-1. Both teams have a huge challenge before them this Sunday evening at the Vélodrome. Bordeaux have not managed a win in Marseille since 2008, when Pierre Ducasse scored the winning goal in injury time (Marouane Chamakh provided the assist).
The top scorers from both sides, Florian Thauvin and Malcom, with 14 and 8 league goals respectively, will be under pressure to make sure this high profile match doesn't end in another stalemate.
Bordeaux are the league's form team at the moment, beating Amiens (3-2) last week to rack up their 4th consecutive victory. Rudi Garcia's side may be second in the league, but they were held to a draw by Saint-Etienne last weekend (2-2). A good sign for the Girondins? We'll find out this Sunday at 9pm!
Allez Bordeaux !
