THE PREDICTION

Bordeaux capitalised on Lyon’s sudden poor form in a 31-9 home match that saw them move up to sixth in the Top 14 table. Back-to-back home wins for Bordeaux should put them in good stead to challenge Clermont Auvergne here as their visitors arrive off the back of a close-run 31-42 away to Pau on Sunday and this match should be a brilliant watch. With a game in-hand over Bordeaux, Clermont will be desperate for a win here and will aim to make the most of the sudden fixture confusion in doing so. Bordeaux were supposed to be playing away at lowly Dragons this weekend, whilst Clermont were gearing up for a challenging trip away to Munster, and that could be a factor here in their preparations. Both sides are no stranger to high-scoring games and so Clermont to just edge past their hosts in a match that goes over 40 points looks the most reasonable outcome here.
