One of the most enticing matches in week 29 of the French Ligue 1 will be Monaco hosting Bordeaux at the Stade Louis II this Saturday, March 11, 2017 (7:45 AM Pacific). The match should be a great duel between two teams in the top five on the Ligue 1 table, with both teams needing the three points from the game for distinct reasons.
Monaco has been one of the best teams in Europe this season, having one of the deadliest attacks in world football. Leonardo Jardim’s side has scored 82 goals in the Ligue 1 and is currently in first place in the league with 65 points, three points ahead of PSG and Nice. The principality side has scored 21 goals in its last six games in all competitions, the latest result of Monaco being a 4-0 victory to Nantes in the Ligue 1.
18-year-old, Kylian Mbappe Lottin has been the standout player in this run scoring seven goals, two against Nantes in that week 28, 4-0 win. Monaco has been a force at the Stade Louis II this season, coming into this game with seven straight victories at home in all competitions. In this undefeated run at home, Monaco has scored 21 goals and has only allowed two goals, having five straight clean sheets at the Stade Louis II.
Bordeaux has also been an attractive team in the Ligue 1 this season, having great performances, currently in fifth place with 43 points. The Navy-and-Whites have only lost one game in their last nine games in all competitions, undefeated in their last four games. In this undefeated run in the last four games, Bordeaux has done well offensively scoring nine goals. The latest result for the Girondins was a solid 1-1 draw to Lyon at home, which kept Bordeaux only four points behind Lyon in fourth place.
21-year-old, Valentin Vada has been a great player for Bordeaux this season, especially recently having two goals in the last two Ligue 1 matches. The youngster should be an interesting player to watch in this match. The clash between these two teams should be one of the best of the weekend in the Ligue 1 and a lot of goals are expected from the encounter.
