Can we finally have a title race in France ? It would be great for the whole of French football if we did, but Bordeaux are the only side capable of putting a little pressure on perennial champions Lyon. They currently trail by 3 points and have to look for maximum points this afternoon, especially with Lyon going to St Etienne, who are up to getting a result, on a "going" day.
They are still without Fernando and Jemmali, but turned in a fine second half performance in their absence in midweek, creating many chances and enjoying 57% possession against St Etienne.

No side has more away points than Bordeaux, who are looking for a hat-trick of road wins and their 5th straight victory in total. They have won on their last 3 visits here and not lost to Lorient, who are a mid table side at best, in 8 meetings.

6 points Bordeaux level ball 1.90 asian line.

Good Luck.
