Le Havre represent the Ligue 2, featuring not much success there. The guests are only 10th in the standings. On their road to the quarter-final, they knocked out the Ligue 3 Bourg-en-Bresse Peronnas 01, then their Ligue 2 colleagues Brest and Troyes. In the last round, they overcame the Ligue 1 competitor Nimes. The team will hardly manage to do same in tomorrow’s clash with Bordeaux.
First, the home match factor favors the hosts a lot. On their turf, they’ve lost in only 2 matches of 10. 4 of their 5 league wins they also featured at home. Bordeaux’ class is higher than the guests’, anyway. Either club sit in the mid of the table, but the hosts compete in the elite league, while the visitors fight in the Ligue 2. Finally, the Cup win provides for the Europa League in the coming campaign. So, the welcoming side will not mind getting there in this way. Over the last 20 years, the opponents met 4 times in Bordeaux. The hosts were victorious in all the head-to-heads, keeping a clean sheet there and making 12 goals. In their league, Le Havre conceded in 4 of 9 outings. Their coming travel will most likely bring another loss.
Prediction for the match: Bordeaux to win home.
