Bordeaux: The away team is currently holding the 8th position in the league. They managed to win 16 points after 4 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses. In the previous round, they lost (0-2) in a home match against Monaco. However, Bordeaux has suffered in recent weeks and are starting to slide down the table after a strong start to the season.
