Betting Tip: Bordeaux @ 2/1 with betvictor

Few Liverpool fans are excited about the Europa League this season, with this competition representing a backward step after the Reds competed in the Champions League last term.

Brendan Rodgers’ team have been installed as default favourites to win the game at the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux, although they really can’t be backed considering the focus will surely be on beating Norwich City on Sunday instead.

Rodgers has scant respect for this competition, with captain Jordan Henderson definitely out of the squad, while Daniel Sturridge will surely not be risked for this match and we could see fringe players such as Jordon Ibe, Divock Origi and Mamadou Sakho fielded for the clash.

Therefore, you have to consider Bordeaux are the best bet, with the French side having landed a surprise 2-2 draw away to PSG on Friday night. Willy Sagnol’s side survived having a men sent off and actually scored the second equaliser when down to ten.

FCGB sit tenth in Ligue 1 after five games played, having lost just one of their matches and we’re likely to see them fielding a fairly strong side that includes the excellent Wahbi Khazri.

Expect to see the Bordeaux odds shorten as kick-off approaches, with the French side looking worthy of a small bet.
