Monaco will be aiming to extend their unbeaten start into this Ligue 1 season when they travel to the Stade Matmut-Atlantique to take on the winless Bordeaux on Sunday afternoon. Bordeaux suffered another Ligue 1 defeat last weekend as they were beaten 2-1 on the road at Toulouse. Meanwhile, Monaco were held to a nil-nil home draw by Lille last weekend, although they missed a penalty kick through Radamel Falcao.

Betting Tips for the game
Bordeaux have suffered back-to-back defeats in this early part of the Ligue 1 season, but the good news is that they looked much better in the Europa League qualifying. They are now in the play-offs stage and managed a decent draw on the road at Gent in the first leg on Thursday. In addition, Les Girondins haven’t been that bad on home soil over the past five months, having lost just three of their last ten fixtures across all competitions.
Monaco, on the flip side, have endured a mixed run of form in the early part of this competitive season. The Monegasques were thrashed 4-0 by PSG in the French Super Cup, but then bounced back with a 1-3 away win at Nantes in their Ligue 1 opener. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to build on that result and only managed a 0-0 draw at home against Lille last weekend. The good news is that Monaco are on a three-game winning streak on the road in Ligue 1 at the moment in time.
Monaco hold a strong head-to-head record against Bordeaux and we expect them to extend it here with another victory. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate Monaco to win at odds 2.37.

First Goalscorer odds
Radamel Falcao has been Monaco’s most prolific player in front of goal so far this season despite the fact he only provided one goal and one assist for the team. The Colombian striker has been the Monegasques’ talisman last term and we expect him to play another vital role this season. Our first goalscorer prediction is Radamel Falcao at odds 4.33.
