Runaway Ligue 1 leaders PSG will be looking to bounce back after a shock defeat in the league last weekend against Bordeaux on Sunday. The visitors are also desperate for the points as they sit bottom of the standings.
Ligue 1 Preview
Despite being 13 points clear at the top of Ligue 1, Mauricio Pochettino is unlikely to have been too happy with the performances of his side in recent weeks. PSG have been extremely poor in recent fixtures, and that has seen them drop to two defeats in their previous three. The first defeat in that sequence came at a time when PSG had lost just once all season.
It still remains incredibly unlikely that a title challenge will develop from any of the sides below them in the standings, but PSG will be looking to win the league as dominantly as possible this term.
The Parisians were beaten 1-0 by Nice last weekend. They managed just two shots on target in that defeat. It would have been hard to predict that PSG would look weak in the final third with Lionel Messi, Neymar and Angel Di Maria all on the pitch.
This is a daunting prospect for Bordeaux this weekend, as they look to pick up just a fifth win of the season. They remain bottom of the Ligue 1 standings after 27 rounds of fixtures, but they aren’t yet cut adrift from safety. Bordeaux are just three points from safety, but defensively they will certainly need to improve.
They have already allowed 65 goals in the league this season, which is by far the worst defensive record in the French top-flight. Their latest defeat was a 2-0 home loss against Troyes.
PSG vs Bordeaux Head to Head
PSG are unbeaten in 13 matches against Bordeaux coming into this fixture. They have picked up wins in each of the last two matches, which included a 3-2 win earlier this season. However, the last fixture played between the two in Paris ended in a 2-2 draw back in November 2020.
PSG vs Bordeaux Prediction
Bordeaux may have picked up a rare point in this fixture last season, but history looks unlikely to repeat itself this weekend. The form of the visitors has been extremely poor in recent weeks, and the Parisians should comfortably take the points on Sunday.
