Monaco at home against Bordeaux – Sunday – 3:00pm GMT – The Stade Louis II.

It’s a trip to the Stade Louis II for eighth placed Monaco on Sunday, as they take on sixteenth placed Bordeaux.

With the Ligue 1 season well into its stride, AS Mónaco have managed to gain 11 points

Monaco will be hoping to increase their row, after victories over both Clermont Foot and Saint-Étienne.

Monaco’s League position speaks for itself, as they continue their rich vein of winning form. Their last win, was the 2nd in a row. With 11 points, they are established in eighth in the League having won three fixtures, drawn two matches, and lost three meetings.

Playing at home, Monaco have won one game, drawn one game, and lost two games.

Winning this fixture will see AS Mónaco on 14 points.

Going into Sunday’s game, Niko Kovac without three of his players, due to illness or injury.

Bordeaux go into this meeting with seven points secured

Bordeaux will want to win this next game, if only to move on from their two previously disappointing results, a draw at Rennes and also against Montpellier.

A draw statistic of two in two meetings is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Vladimir Petkovic’s men wishes for ultimately. Their position is sixteenth in the League, and they have seven points having won one game, drawn four matches, and lost three games.

Playing away from home, Bordeaux have won one game, drawn two meetings, and lost one game.

A victory for Bordeaux would put them on 10 points.

Bordeaux may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.
