Bordeaux vs Lens: prediction for the Ligue 1 match
Six-time French champion started the previous season well, but eventually lost focus and finished the season dangerously close to the relegation zone. It was a disappointing result for the fans and board decided to change the head coach, now Vladimir Petkovic is in charge of the team.
At the start of the new tournament team was beaten by Clermont (0:2), then Bordeaux played two draws with Marseille (2:2) and Angers (1:1). On August 28, Girondins were demolished by Nice (0:4) on an away game.
Baysse, Lacoux, Maja and Kwateng are on team's injuried list. Kalu, Mensah and Sissokho are isolated due to coronavirus.
In the previous season Lens put up a wonderful performance and finished on a seventh spot, no one expected such a good result from them. In 38 rounds team recorded 15 victories, one of them - over PSG in the first round.
Team didn't disappoint at the start of new season - a victory over Monaco (2:0) and three consecutive draws brought six points and a seventh spot in the standings. Team's weakest link is their defensive line - they conceded more than one goal per game.
Boli, Doucoure and Haidara will be unavailable for an upcoming game.

Bordeaux have a great squad with a number of experienced and technically gifted players, but their game is not so well-structured. We think that this time Vladimir Petkovic will be able to motivate his players for a victory and hosts will break their winless streak.
