Our prediction for this Coupe de France match:
A place in the Coupe de France last 16 will be at stake when Pau and Bordeaux face each other at Stade du Hameau. Pau set up a meeting with Bordeaux by beating Alberes Argeles, Marssac SRDT, and Sable, but they face an uphill task in Thursday’s football match against les Girondins. Considering that the National 1 side are fully focused on securing promotion to the Ligue 2, we are not tempted to put our money on the hosts.
Bordeaux, on the other hand, kicked off their Coupe de France campaign with a 2-0 win over Le Mans, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Pau. Since les Girondins have slim chances of winning the Ligue 1 title, we are positive that they will take Thursday’s French Cup game very seriously. One of the men to keep an eye on in the away team will be experienced attacker Jimmy Briand.
