Bordeaux vs FC Nantes Free Betting Tips

Great resumption of Ligue 1 this Friday, August 21!

At Matmut-Atlantique, it was finally the poster between the Girondins de Bordeaux and FC Nantes that was selected to launch the 2020-2021 edition of the L1 Uber Eats. For the anecdote, it was initially the meeting between Olympique de Marseille and AS Saint-Etienne that was to inaugurate this new exercise, but 3 cases of coronavirus detected this week within the Marseille workforce (Steve Mandanda, Valentin Rongier, and Maxime Lopez) forced French football authorities to postpone this match to mid-September.

Why have maintained and advanced this Bordeaux-Nantes then, even though several players are missing for the same reasons on the Nantes side? Quite simply because the last recorded case will date from 8 days at the time of the meeting (13 August-exactly), that is to say, the limit fixed by the league to put a player in isolation. Christian Gourcuff will, therefore, have to do without 7 members of his workforce, in addition to the injured.

A boon for the Girondins? In a chaotic situation after the departure of Paulo Sousa and the tensions with the Ultrasmarines, Bordeaux managed the nice shot Jean-Louis Gasset to revive the team and could take advantage of the slaughter on the side of the Canaries to pocket a first victory that would clean up certainly the relations with the supporters!
