Bordeaux are yet to play a pre-season friendly since their final fixture of the Ligue 1, which saw them finish a respectable 11th in the league (W12 D14 L12). Bordeaux took 7 points from their last 4 matches (W2 D1 L1), including 2 wins where the scored over 3 goals and a 1-1 draw at home to Ligue 1 champions PSG.

AC Milan are also yet to play a pre-season friendly since their disappointing 1-0 extra-time defeat to Serie A champions Juventus in the Coppa Italia final held late June. Milan are now without a title since the 2010-2011 season and they failed to qualify for any form of European competition, finishing 4 points behind Sassuolo (6th) and Europa League qualification in 7th place. AC Milan will be raring to go and focus on their development before the new season begins.

The two sides last met 20 years ago when Bordeaux won 3-0 against AC Milan in the quarterfinals of the UEFA cup in 1996. 20 years ago in 1996. Bordeaux were led by three future world champions Zinedine Zidane, Bixente Lizarazu and Christophe Dugarry. Such a world class lineup they may not have these days, but neither do AC Milan, who have similarly fallen far since the days they were known as the “Italian Giants”. Friendly matches obviously have a different mentality to true competition, but both sides were in decent scoring form towards the season’s end and should be looking to kick start their summer with ambitious performances. Combining this analysis with the statistic below, we expect over 2.5 goals at 17/20 to be the safe bet and a result of draw 2-2 at 12/1 with bet365 to be a top value correct score bet for this match.

Bordeaux won 3-0 against AC Milan in the quarterfinals of the UEFA cup 20 years ago in 1996. Bordeaux were led by the three future world champions Zinedine Zidane, Bixente Lizarazu and Christophe Dugarry.

Neither Bordeaux or AC Milan have played a pre-season friendly match yet. 3 of both Bordeaux's and AC Milan's last 5 matches ended with over 2.5 goals scored. AC Milan have scored at least 1 goal in their last 4 consecutive away matches and Bordeaux the same in their last 5 consecutive home matches.

Bordeaux have not been too active over the summer. Arsenal have called back Mathieu Debuchy after his loan spell at Bordeaux came to an end.

AC Milan have called back Michael Agazzi who had a loan spell at Middlesborough in the Championship but was only featured on the bench. AC Milan signed Gianluca Lapadula from Pescara in the Serie B (30 goals in 44 appearances) for a reported €9.5million so he will likely be given a run about.
