22/21 Daily Predictions French Top 14 Stade Francais vs Bordeaux

Stade Francais vs Bordeaux

Bordeaux welcome Stade Francais to the Matmut Atlantique for this semi-final match in the French Top 14. The home side got into the final thanks to an excellent 30-19 win over Racing 92 in the quarter finals. Stade on the other hand have had a week off and will be fully refreshed for this match. Bordeaux showed they are real title contenders as their pack is finally matching the class of their backline. Stade love a set piece game as their strength lies in the forwards with their front row of Alo-Emile and Ivaldi and Abramishvili being among the best in the league.

TIP: Knockout matches and French games in particular are decided by the forwards but this match could be the exception to the rule as Bordeaux have arguably the most dangerous backline in Europe. They got the maestro Matthieu Jalibert pulling the strings at flyhalf and he has the likes of Damien Penaud and Louis Bielle-Biarrey on the wings and Romain Buros in the fifteen jersey. The best chance Stade have of causing an upset is to slow the game down and look for set pieces. The bookies have the Bordeaux as favorites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Tictacbets 1.40, Wanejo 1.40 and Bettabets 1.40


Stade Francais vs Bordeaux

  • The last four matches has seen each team with two wins apiece.
  • The home team has won three of the last four matches.

Latest results for both teams

Bordeaux beat Racing 31-19 in their last match while Stade Francais beat Toulon 23-20 in their last match.


The man that has a huge job on his big hands is Ben Tameifuna. The powerhouse Tongan prop will need to be at his very best just to gain parity in the front row of the visitors scrum. If Bordeaux cannot get good ball from the scrums and rucks then it negates the effect of their backline. Stade also have some exciting players in the backs like Peniasi Dakuwaqa and Jeremy Ward. The Fijian in particular can make something out of nothing but he will need to be weary of the Bordeaux wingers. The difference in the match will be Jalibert as he can vary his game to any situation. I am predicting a Bordeaux win by more than 10 points.
