Pau vs Bordeaux Free Betting Tips
“Les Capbourruts” would love to be responsible for ensuring that the four-time overall winner in the Southwest duel takes leave of the competition in the form of the Girondins.
However, the bookmakers do not consider the third division’s progress to be really promising. At Pau vs Bordeaux, the odds of bookmakers swing towards the guests.
Not to be neglected is the recent descent of “Le club au scapulaire”. Four defeats in series in Ligue 1 have been recorded recently, which should be taken into account for the prediction at Pau against Bordeaux.
However, Pau FC have not spoiled themselves with glory in the third-rate National 1 in the past few weeks and have also not won any of the last three league games. Accordingly, it is most sustainable to play at Pau against Bordeaux Tip 2 and bet on the favorite’s progress.
Pau – Statistics & Current Form
The Pau Football Club – Pau FC for short – has been part of the third-rate Championnat National 1 since 2016/17, with a solid tenth place at the end of the 2018/19 season.
This is highly remarkable in that the club, founded in 1904, never had professional status in the first 112 years of its club history. Even today, the club is only considered semi-professional and is therefore a kind of exotic in the third-highest division in the country of the reigning football world champion.
Nevertheless, a lot could change at “Les Capbourruts” soon. After all, Bruno Irles’ troop currently occupies fourth place in the current table in National 1. Two game days ago, Pau was even the table leader.
However, because only two out of nine possible points from the last three league games were posted, the blue and yellow were handed over to fourth place. It is the first rank that would no longer lead to Ligue 2 at the end of the season.
However, there are still chances for the eternal underdog to leave their existence as an amateur club or semi-professional team behind. An away win at the currently troubled US Quevilly next weekend and Pau could again climb into the top three.
Before that, it is necessary to regain the necessary confidence for this task in the Coupe de France. Including the narrow progress in the last cup round at the fifth-class club Sablé, which Pau only managed to take on penalties, none of the last four competitive games ended in regular time with a win for “Les Capbourruts”.
Accordingly, the odds of bookmakers at Pau against Bordeaux also swing in the direction of the well-known guests who prefer to travel to the capital of the southwestern French department of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques.
Nevertheless, the blue and yellow cheer up their good ligability. There were only two defeats in 18 games. At home in the Nouveau Stade de Pau, only one in ten games were lost (five wins, four draws). Pau is the team with the most home goals in all of National 1. 22 goals have already been applauded by fans in their own stadium this season. Should there be more against Bordeaux, no one would complain.
Best scorers in the league:
🏆 Mamadou Lamine Gueye (9 goals)

↪ Guendouz – Bansais – Diaby – Kamissoko – Sadzoute – Bayard – Daubin – Name – Ba – Gueye – Sabaly

Bordeaux – Statistics & Current Form
The club located at the mouth of the Garonne river at the Gironde has won the Coupe de France four times. The Football Club Girondins de Bordeaux was last successful in 2013.
It was the only title that the former UEFA Cup finalist won in the past decade and, at least this season, the country’s most important cup competition is also the last remaining chance for the Sousa troop.
In the Coupe de la Ligue, “Les marine et blanc” finally failed in the round of 16 at Stade Brest. In Ligue 1, the 14th of the previous season currently holds a sobering 13th place in the table. Paris Saint-Germain are already 20 points behind.
Bordeaux has little to do with qualifying for an international competition, let alone the potentially seventh championship title these days. Unless the Girondins win the Coupe de France without further ado, which would also be a way into the Europa League, in which Bordeaux has been allowed to participate four times in the last decade.
“Le club au scapulaire” doesn’t really have much momentum to throw at it. The only sense of achievement in the new year was the 2-0 home win over Le Mans FC in the ninth round of the Coupe de France. The last four league games have all been lost, which means that coach Paulo Sousa is also heavily criticized nine months after taking office.
After all, the recent sporty downhill ride is not really understandable. Not a single player is currently missing injured or suspended. In addition, painful departures such as from defense chief Jules Koundé to Seville could be compensated for with prominent newcomers such as Laurent Koscielny from Arsenal FC.
The Girondins should take the Coupe de France all the more seriously, however. So everyone involved knows that an early end to a third division team would make the crisis really tangible. In our opinion, this is exactly what speaks for playing Tip 2 at Pau against Bordeaux.
After all, “Le club au scapulaire” can gain a lot of confidence from a clear away win with a strong underdog, which is needed for the away game in Nantes for one of the surprise teams of the current season in Ligue 1.
Best scorers in the league:
🏆 Nicolas de Preville (5 goals)
🏆 Josh Maja (5 goals)
🏆 Jimmy Briand (5 goals)
Probable lineup of Bordeaux:
↪ Costil – Pablo – Koscielny – Mexer – Benito – Sabaly – Tchouaméni – Otavio – Basic – de Préville – Briand
Last matches from Bordeaux:
⚽️ 01/11/2020 – Girondins Bordeaux vs. Lyon 1: 2 (Ligue 1)

At Pau vs Bordeaux, the prediction is influenced by the recent sporting downturns of both teams in league operations. While Bordeaux suffered four defeats in a row and was passed by a contender for a starting place for the Europa League in the lower third of the table, Pau has been waiting for another three for three games.
“Les Capbourruts” have lost first place in National 1 and are currently fourth, even slipping out of the potential promotion zone. The Coupe de France therefore represents an opportunity for both teams to regain some of their lost confidence.
The Girondins should be certain of the explosiveness of this game. To embarrass himself in an underclass underdog would massively worsen the recent earnings crisis. The risk of not taking the game seriously or even underestimating the opponent should therefore be low.
Key facts – Pau vs Bordeaux tips
💫 Pau only lost one competitive game at home this season
💫 Bordeaux has lost the last four league games in a row
💫 Pau has not won any of their last four competitive games in regular time (three draws, one loss)
So there is a lot of value in playing Pau against Bordeaux Tip 2 and betting on the four-time overall Coupe de France winner. After all, this competition is also the last realistic chance for the Girondins to win a title in the rather disappointing season so far.
For Pau against Bordeaux, odds of up to 1.75 are available for the move of “Le club au scapulaire” into the round of 16, which promises a positive expected value. We invest eight units in the favorite tip.
