Bordeaux square off against Lyon at the Stade Matmut-Atlantique on Friday night and the match should prove to be an interesting one between two teams fighting it out to earn a Europa League finish.

Bordeaux Match News

Bordeaux have endured a number of years in the doldrums and Les Girondins only managed a mediocre 11th placed finish in the Ligue 1 table last season, which would certainly have been very disappointing for such a big club.

The current campaign has proven to be a huge improvement for Bordeaux though, as new boss Jocelyn Gourvennec has completely transformed the club and they are currently battling it out for a European placed finish under the 44-year-old.

A finish the top four would seal Bordeaux’s place in the Europa League but they are facing stiff competition from Lyon at the moment and Gourvennec will be hopeful that his side is able to claim a victory when their closes adversaries in the league come to town this weekend.

Maxime Poundjé, Abdou Traore, Youssouf Sabaly, Thomas Touré and Diego Rolan are the injury concerns for Bordeaux ahead of the game.

Lyon Match News

Lyon enjoyed wonderful progress under Bruno Genesio last season and although they were unable to put up much of a fight in the title race against PSG, a second placed finish was certainly a commendable effort.

The current campaign however, has not proven to be so rosy and a number of inconsistent performances have meant that Lyon are already 17 points off of leaders Monaco in the table and the best Genesio’s men can now hope for is a 4th placed Europa League finish.

While Lyon are going strong in the current Europa League campaign, Genesio will be hopeful of his side finishing in the top four and a victory against Bordeaux on Friday will go a long way in achieving the goal. Jérémy Morel and Maxime Gonalons are the two players out injured for the game.
