THE PREDICTION

Bordeaux will start this weekend’s fixtures in second place of the Top 14, but six points behind leaders Toulouse, after a superb 15-20 win away at fortress Lyon. The hosts are unbeaten in four Top 14 matches now since an opening day defeat to Biarritz and they should be able to take that momentum home with them in time for more points against travelling Montpellier. The visitors are no pushovers, though, as they beat last season’s runners-up La Rochelle 21-11 at home to bounce back from a disappointing 23-22 loss at Pau the week before. Losing at Bordeaux would be no embarrassment but their form suggests they can take this much closer than some expect. The hosts to cover -5 in victory seems a suitably cautious pick here.
