Bordeaux vs Saint-Etienne
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 20th October 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00CET
Venue: Matmut Atlantique.
Bordeaux come into this game on Sunday in 4th place having had their best start to a league campaign in almost a decade. They have lost just 1 game from their last 5 with their last match ending in a 3-1 win over Toulouse.
The home side have 15 points and if they win and Angers lose they would go in 3rd place. What has been interesting is that the club actually have a much better record away from home and indeed their home form has been poor with just one win this season, their last home game finished in a defeat but it was to PSG and the score was only 1-0. All in all the side have been very good this season and they will want to keep this momentum up.
Saint Etienne beat Lyon 1-0 and have in fact won their last 2 games and yet that wasn’t enough to save coach’s Ghislain Printant who was sacked and his replacement has been Claude Puel who used to manage Leicester in the Premier League.
It is true that Saint Etienne have started the season poorly, but some thought they were improving when he was sacked. The club are in 13th place and could move 6-7 places up the league with a win, so not everything has been lost to them yet. They have won back to back games and perhaps the bad form has now stopped.

Bordeaux vs Saint-Etienne: Prediction
For us we will pick the away side to get the win. As a group of players the Verts were playing much better football winning their last 2 games and they have an objective.
Claude Puel is a good coach and he has come in and had some time to speak to the players about his vision. Bordeaux are a good club but they are playing much better away from home, it will be a very interesting game, but we will opt for an away victory, our main bet to consider though is both teams to get a goal.
