Bordeaux hosts Le Mans in a game from the 1/32-finals of the Coupe de France

Bordeaux hosts Le Mans in a game from the 1/32-finals of the Coupe de France. These two teams will face each other on Friday at the Stade Matmut-Atlantique. Let’s take a look at it in our football prediction tips.


In the Ligue 1 Bordeaux are not having the season they hoped to have at this point of the campaign. Paulo Sousa’s boys are not performing at the best of their abilities and it’s pretty obvious when they are 13th in the standings after 19 games played.


Bordeaux’s current form is also not a thing which makes the fans happy right now. Since their terrific 6-0 win over Nimes in the Ligue 1, Bordeaux are in run of four consecutive losses. Three of these defeats were conceded in the league, while they also lost again Brest in a game from the 1/8-finals of the Coupe de la Ligue.


Josh Maja and Nicolas de Preville are the best performing strikers in Bordeaux’s squad right now, both having scored 5 goals since the start of the season in the Ligue 1. Most likely Paulo Sousa will rely on them for goals on Friday.


Le Mans are having a mediocre season in the Ligue 2 so far. They are 15th in the league standings with 20 points and a record of 6 wins, 2 draws and 11 losses. Just like Bordeaux, Le Mans already left the Coupe de la Ligue competition after suffering a 1-4 defeat during the visit to PSG.


Le Mans reached the 1/32-finals of the Coupe de France after playing extra time against Les Herbiers in the previous round. In order to progress Le Mans scored twice for a 2-1 win and both goals were scored after penalties. Kevin Crehin and Harisson Manzala scored from the spot for Richard Dezire’s team.


That’s our football prediction tips for the Coupe de France 1/32-finals clash between Bordeaux and Le Mans on Friday. Good luck!
