This Saturday (19:00), the Girondins de Bordeaux host the Pau team on behalf of the fifteenth day of Ligue 2. Palois, on a streak of three consecutive victories, wants to achieve the feat.
The Ligue 2 Dolphin can be suspect. Bordeaux face Pau this Saturday in great form on the fifteenth day of Ligue 2. Unbeaten for three games, Pau FC could achieve mastery if they manage to win against one of the most iconic clubs in French football. “There is a difference of 7 points between us and the Girondins. Imagine if we have a very positive result, that would be a great performance”supports the coach of Pau, Didier Tholot.
The Palois have been on a good track since mid-October. Tenth with 20 points, Pau FC have taken ten points from their last four games. Despite the confidence gained from these successes and the performance of his players, Didier Tholot remains realistic about the chances of winning the game against the Girondins. “We are one of the small clubs. We don’t think of ourselves as others, emphasizes the coach. We know it will be complicated. Bordeaux will be under a lot of pressure. Let’s go there with a liberated spirit”. The desire to win is far from absent. “This is not a tourist trip to see Matmutanswers Didier Tholot. We will do everything to upset this team”.
Pau on enormous dynamics
Defeated for the first time this season in Nîmes (1-0), Bordelais wants to regain the position of leader of the championship held by Le Havre. “We lost because of our team, this lack of determination. Sometimes we lacked patience”, summarized David Guion, coach of Bordeaux. Bordeaux had a satisfactory start to the season with 27 points. It would be almost perfect if the Girondins win against Pau before the international break. “It is an important match. We have to go for the win, because with 30 points we will confirm that we have a very good start to the championship”, analyzes the coach. To achieve this, the coach does not want to change the winning team. “We have benchmarks, a team that exists. I don’t know if it’s appropriate to change everything one day from the end”continued David Guion.
The last clash between these two teams dates back to January 16, 2020. A sweet memory for Béarnais. It was in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France, where Pau FC, then in National 1, won in extra time (3-2). What hope that we will relive the same scenario for Pau whose goal is to maintain this season.
