Petkovic has decided to manage one of the medium-sized French champions after the Euros, but so far he has failed to establish a competent game and raise the team from the bottom. Bordeaux are not performing at their best; they concede a lot and rarely score points, failing in defence. At the moment, a lot of players were sent to African national teams, so it is difficult for the team to perform. That is how Bordeaux lost 3-0 to Brest in the European Cup in the new year.
Sampaoli bought some top-class players during the off-season and expelled the superfluous ballast from the club, but the team has slowed down with the start of European competitions after a good start. There is a lack of resource to play on several fronts. There are problems in the team’s defence. In recent encounters the Provençal have started to gain momentum and have not lost for a long time, and in the last match in the cup they defeated a modest Chauvigny with a score of 0:3.
Statistics and figures
The last encounter between these teams ended in a 2-2 draw
“Marseille have a streak of five consecutive matches without defeat.
Bordeaux have lost just twice in their last five matches.
The visitors look like clear favourites for this game as they have a more powerful squad and are in good form at the moment. “Bordeaux are failing a lot right now and have an overcrowded sickbay. I think we are in for a bright and hard fixture, with plenty of goals.
