The Girondins de Bordeaux welcome Stade Brestois this afternoon at 3 p.m. at Matmut Atlantique on behalf of the 15th day of Ligue 1.
Let’s look at what could be the team composition aligned by Vladimir Petkovic.
While we can expect changes following the poor performance while the players in defense and collectively, the Bordeaux coach should not upset everything. He’s never done it this season.
Behind, he still has to do without Laurent Koscielny and Abdel Jalil Medioub who are injured. It is highly likely that the Gregersen-Mexer central hinge will be renewed. In this case, the Norwegian defender would play left ax which is not his preferred position. Nevertheless, he has already done it several times with the Girondins since his arrival.
On the sides, Timothée Pembele should replace Enock Kwateng because the latter completely passed through against FC Metz last weekend. On the left side, we don’t know if Petkovic will finally give his session to Gideon Mensah.
Indeed, Ricardo Manga has demonstrated defensive deficiencies that are costly to the Navy and White. Especially since it does not bring much offensively either.
The same in attack
In the middle of the field, it should be the status quo with the pair Onana-Otavio should be aligned recovery in a medium at 3, composed of Yacine Adli in free electron. In front, Dilrosun should occupy the left side in the absence of Hwang who should be preserved and start the meeting on the sidelines.
On the right, Alberth Elis will be aligned on this side of the field, because Mbaye Niang is tipped to start the match in the center. It would be his first tenure.
As always, it’s hard to know what Petkovic is going to do. However, he has shown since the start of the season that he does not run his team much. He retains his confidence in the players despite the poor performance in the previous meeting.
The probable 11 :
Bordeaux-Brest: the Girondins group without Kalu with Niang and Elis
