Saturday Ligue 1 action from Allianz Rivera, as Nice take on Bordeaux.

It’s a clash of sixth vs fifteenth, as Nice host Bordeaux at Allianz Rivera.

Nice go into this game with four points secured

With a win in their previous game, (0-4) against Lille, Nice will likely be in a positive frame of mind.

Success in football comes from winning more games than your opponents, simply put, if Nice can continue to extend their winning streak from one games then Christophe Galtier’s squad will have an incredible season. They currently stand sixth in the League, with four points having won one game and drawn one game.

Playing at home, Nice have drawn one game.

A win in this fixture, would take Nice’s points from 4 to 7, so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

Nice have a good scoring record this season, with four netted so far (3 from open play and one penalty). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Kasper Dolberg (3), Amine Gouiri (1), and Hicham Boudaoui (1). Nice have managed to maintain a strong defence so far, which in turn has allowed them to deliver good attacking options themselves and deliver good scoring opportunities.

Going into Saturday’s game, Christophe Galtier without six of his players, due to illness or injury.

With the Ligue 1 season well into its stride, Bordeaux have managed to gain two points

Bordeaux have dropped four points in their last two games – 1-1 at Angers SCO and 2-2 at Olympique de Marseille.

Bordeaux have developed a habit of drawing football matches this season, which is reflected by their position in the table. Their position is fifteenth in the League, and they have two points drawn two matches and lost one game.

Playing away from home, Bordeaux have drawn one game.

Bordeaux will have 5 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Bordeaux’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Vladimir Petkovic, ahead of this Saturday’s fixture against their opponents.

Nice v Bordeaux – Head-to-Heads.
