The recent years for FC Girondins de Bordeau have been marked by a lot of turmoil. For starters, they’ve changed so many managers over the past 2 years it’s becoming hard to keep track of it all. Paulo Sousa was expected to bring in a new age of stability, but last year’s 12th placement wasn’t enough to satisfy anyone.
Jean-Louis Gasset, the new head coach, has a bit of a reputation for revitalizing once-great French teams. However, the task ahead of him is very difficult. At odds of 21.00 for a Top 3 Finish, Les Girondins don’t seem likely to place highly, but stranger things have happened.
Bordeaux Key Players
Contrary to what most experts expected, this club hasn’t been involved in a lot of transfers going into the 2020/21 season. Almost no new arrivals have signed up, and the squad lost goalkeeper Paul Bernardoni to Angers and left-winger François Kaman went to Lokomotiv Moscow.
It will be interesting to see got Gasset plans to use basically the same roster and get better results. The crucial members of this lineup are players such as right-back Youssouf Sabaly, centre-back Pablo, and a strong core of centre-forwards like Josh Maja and Nicolas Préville. This sort of lineup allows for a strong midfield presence and is the basis for their possession-based gameplay. However, such an approach has seen mixed results so far, so crucial changes can be expected.
The Girondins, as Bordeaux are commonly known, have one major rival in Ligue 1. Contested between the two major clubs from cities located along the Garonne River, the Derby de la Garonne is a highly-anticipated local derby with Toulouse.
The Garonne Derby grew in competitiveness at the turn of the century (in 2003) when Toulouse got back to the top tier of French football following administrative relegation to the third division -Champoionnat National. With only 150 miles between the two cities, rivalry between Bordeaux and Toulouse was first ignited in 1946.
Initially founded as a multi-sport club which was a customary practice in France, Bordeaux went through a lengthy period from 1881 to 1920 without having football under its umbrella. The first unsuccessful experiment with football had happened in 1910 but it was not until a decade later that this sport was added to the mix.
The Girondins achieved professional status in 1936 and have since then grown into one of the most successful football clubs in France. Bordeaux are a six-time national champions and proud owners of four Coupe de France medals. Moreover, they won three Coupe de la Ligue titles and even played in the UEFA Cup final in 1996. The only international trophy they have won to this date remains the 1995 UEFA Intertoto Cup title. Bordeaux play their home matches at the Matmut Atlantique stadium, better known as the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux, build ahead of the UEFA Euro 2016. The modern-looking sports venue seats over 42,000 people. In addition to football, the stadium also hosts a series of other events, including concerts.
