JORDAN made a good start to his new column with a nap winner thanks to Spurs to score 2+ at Norwich.
He’s out to make it two in a row with a European double.
Jordan says: Never quite as confident backing away sides in leagues I’m not as familiar with as I have to go by stats a lot more.
I’m intrigued by the price of Bordeaux to score at Lyon. They did lose their most influential player this season in the Tunisian forward Wahbi Khazri to Sunderland on deadline day but he has only produced two assists and one goal in three of Bordeaux’s last seven Ligue 1 games.
It’s safe to say Lyon aren’t who they used to be. They haven’t kept a clean sheet since the start of December and even then their last clean sheet at home was early on in November.
Bordeaux on the other hand are undefeated in their last seven and have scored in 10 of their last 11 games. They also made some decent signings in the window bringing Debuchy in from Arsenal and Malcolm, an 18-year-old from Brazilian side Corinthians who has featured for his national U20 team. They still have the likes of big Diabate, Rolan and Plasil who can all cause problems on their day.
My next game takes me to Italy where promoted Frosinone are probably set for the drop back where they belong. They have conceded at least two goals in 11 of their last 12 matches in Serie A.
They host a Bologna side who have won five of their last six away games and scored at least twice in their last three, scoring in six of their last seven on the road against sides such as Juventus, AC Milan and Sassuolo.
