Nice and Bordeaux face each other tonight at Allianz Riviera for the 13th fixture of Ligue 1. Both teams are separated by just 2 points, with Nice sitting at the 13th spot while Bordeaux is 6th. This reveals how competitive the French League is this year, with the 2nd place and the 15th place separated by just 5 points.
Last week was productive for Patrick Vieira's team as Nice was able against Reims, to end a 6-game streak without a win and also the first time without conceding a single goal. The team has been showing lack of consistency in the competition, with 6 losses in just 12 games, 4 of them coming in the last 6 matches. A win today will bring Nice closer to the European spots, and the second in a row for just the second time in the season.

Bordeaux has been showing some refreshing sings this season, as the team is more consistent in the League comparing with recent seasons. For today, Paulo Sousa's team will try to continue their good performances away from home, as Bordeaux has the second best record counting away games in the League, only behind PSG. The team has 10 points in 6 away matches so far, with 3 wins in the last 5 trips, which reveals their accuracy away from the Matmut Atlantique Stadium. Bordeaux comes from an important home win against Nantes and today will be looking to bounce back from a momento, as the team lost 3 of their last 5 matches.
