Today’s Betting Tips Bordeaux vs Montpellier
For the home side is much at stake, because in case of a point loss, the home side would probably finally say goodbye to the dream of Europe. Anyway, this dream is extremely optimistic as table 13th, the gap is already 12 points in fourth place. The guests from Montpellier are currently ranked eighth, with a win at Bordeaux Nice could be overtaken. A clear favorite does not exist, according to the bookmakers. Between Bordeaux and Montpellier odds are offered at a very similar level. The game starts in Matmut Atlantique at 19 o’clock. This completes the game before the start of the Champions League games.
Bordeaux – Statistics & Current Form
Officially Eric Bedouet has been head coach since September 6, 2018 at Bordeaux. The long-time conditioning coach of the French national football team (from 2012 to 2018) practiced this profession but only on paper, since the actual coach, Ricardo Gomes, did not have the necessary license. After the results were far from satisfactory in recent weeks, the Brazilian Gomes was relieved of his duties on 26 February. In the last six league games Bordeaux could celebrate only one victory and was ranked in the table. The goal of playing internationally in the coming season is now in acute danger. Bedouet remains with the club, but as the sole head coach probably only the match against Montpellier deny. For days there are rumors that Paulo Sousa – former Basel and Florence coach – will be presented at Bordeaux as the new head coach.
The hitherto mixed season is by no means due to the home record. In the native Matmut Atlantique Bordeaux was able to convince over long distances. Only two of the 13 home games were lost – defeats were against Strasbourg (1st matchday) and Nice (11th matchday). Since October 28, Bordeaux is unbeaten at home. While eventful Bordeaux matches can almost be ruled out in foreign countries (only in three out of 13 games have three or more goals been scored), fans were offered more spectacle at home. In six of the 13 home games, a tip on the over 2.5 was the right choice. To that end, on Tuesday night between Bordeaux and Montpellier, a prediction on the under 2.5 is obvious, but with odds below 1.50 these bets are not necessarily lucrative.
Personally, interim coach Bedouet on Tuesday evening can draw on the full. Injured or suspended players are currently not to complain. Bordeaux presents itself as a very young team, in which power fluctuations are not really uncommon. Only eight of the 25 Kaderspieler are 26 years or older.
Expected formation of Bordeaux:
Costil – Poundje, Jovanovic, Kounde, Sabaly – Tchouameni, Otavio, Basic – de Preville, Maja, Kalu
Last matches of Bordeaux:
- 24.02.2019 – FC Nantes vs. Girondins Bordeaux 1: 0 (Ligue 1)

Montpellier – Statistics & Current Form
The sensational champion of the 2011/12 season may dream of returning to Europe this season. This owes the underdog head coach Michel the Zakarian. The long-standing head coach of FC Nantes has already made a step forward with Montpellier in the past season. Montpellier was a strong bear in the autumn and was among the top five in the table for a long time. In recent weeks and months, however, this form could no longer be preserved. After 26 match days, Montpellier now has as many credit points as it did last season (38). However, it must be mentioned that the team won only one of the last eleven league games. In the recent two games, it was also heavy defeats. After the 1: 5 against PSG in a catch-up game there were many goals in the last league match against Stade Reims in the 2-4 defeat. Goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte did not have to concede as many as nine goals in two league matches. Basically, however, is just the defensive as a showpiece, in the 24 league games before Montpellier had only conceded 19 goals.
The stable defensive last holey presented like a Swiss cheese. Basically, Montpellier is also a guarantor for goal-poor games and accordingly, in the catch-up game between Bordeaux and Montpellier the low odds on the under 2.5 are quite understandable. The Zakarian will certainly put the focus on the stable defensive in Bordeaux. A five-chain can be expected, the way forward will not be the top priority on Tuesday. First of all, it’s time to regain security. Personally, the situation is similar to that of Bordeaux. Injured or suspended are currently unknown and Montpellier can compete accordingly.
Expected formation of Montpellier:
Lecomte – Lasne, Hilton, Congre, Mendes, Aguila – Skhiri, Le Tallec – Zambia – Delort, Laborde
Last matches of Montpellier:
- 24.02.2019 – Montpellier Vs. Stade Reims 2: 4 (Ligue 1)
- 20.02.2019 – PSG Vs. Montpellier 5: 1 (Ligue 1)
- 17.02.2019 – OSC Lille vs. 0-0 (Montpellier) (Ligue 1)
- 10.02.2019 – Montpellier Vs. AS Monaco 2: 2 (Ligue 1)
- 03.02.2019 – Olympique Nîmes Vs. Montpellier 1: 1 (Ligue 1)
Bordeaux vs Montpellier Direct Comparison & Stats Highlights
A journey into the world-famous wine-growing region was rarely seen as a success for the HSC Montpellier. Montpellier has made 29 appearances in southwestern France in the French Football House of Lords and was able to return home in only six of these 29 games, with two wins and four draws. The last of only two successes in the Matmut Atlantique Stadium, however, succeeded last year with a 2-0 win. The first result of the current season ended with the same result. On the tenth game day, the team of Michel der Zakarian celebrated a home win. Thus, in five of the last seven games between Bordeaux and Montpellier, the tip that will not hit both teams was the right decision.
Bordeaux vs Montpellier Betting Tips Analysed
The confidence in both teams has been affected in recent weeks. The current form is by no means satisfactory. In this regard, in the game between Bordeaux and Montpellier, a tip on the three-way market is a difficult undertaking. Arguments are to be found for every game outcome and really appealing value is not recognized on any odds.
Key Facts – Bordeaux vs Montpellier tips
➡️ Only one win from the last six games – team manager Gomes was fired last week!
➡️ Only two of the 29 away games in Bordeaux have Montpellier won – including the duel in the previous year!
➡️ The defensive crumbles last – nine goals conceded in the last two league games!
Basically, these two teams are teams that are not necessarily for many goals. This has not been hidden from the bookmakers and odds of less than 1.50 for the under 2.5 are set very low. However, I liked the idea between Bordeaux and Montpellier that both teams to score, no. After the recent results, the main focus will be on a safe defensive. This could make it goalless for a very long time and the odds of 1.61 seem quite interesting.
