Nice is off to a decent start in the French Ligue. They sit in 10th place with 17 points and three points could move them all the way to fourth depending on the outcome of Nantes game. Bordeaux is hoping for three points to potentially move into the top half of the table.
“We will face a team that has a lot of success in his new stadium,” Bordeaux boss Francis Gillot said, via ESPN FC. “I saw images of matches of the Allianz Riviera. This is a bad ground and it is not going to help in the long term.”
“We expect a tough game, especially as Nice lost to Bastia. Generally, when they lose, they put the necessary ingredients to win the next game. It will be difficult, as usual,” added Gillot.
Gillot is referring to Nice’s 0-1 loss to Bastia last weekend. Nice hasn’t lost back-to-back French Ligue games all season long, a trend they aren’t looking to end. Following this match, Nice will begin preparing for Paris Saint-Germain next weekend.
