Bordeaux vs Saint-Etienne Prediction & Match Preview

Bordeaux vs Saint-Etienne
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 16th December 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Matmut Atlantique (Bordeaux).

Bordeaux’s problem is inconsistency and they are finding it very hard to string wins together. This is why they come into this match in the classic mid table position of 11th.

At the weekend the club lost 2-1 at Lille though this was a result that many expected given how well Lille has started the season. The good news for the home side is that they didn’t lose by a big score and will fancy their chances to get something from this match.

Bordeaux are not an easy team to beat at home and there has to be credit given to the club who have only lost once so far. Their last home match ended in victory over Brest.

Saint Etienne just can’t win a game after their impressive start and come into this match in 15th place with 13 points and are six behind their hosts.

However the defeats have stopped and instead Saint Etienne have drawn their last 3 games in a row. Last weekend their fourth draw of the season came against Angers.

Bordeaux vs Saint-Etienne Prediction

These are two teams that don’t seem like they will struggle for relegation this season but also two that look like they will miss out on European football also.

The clubs are very equal to one another but we will pick the home win because Saint Etienne are missing a killer instinct in their game, and if they are to start winning again that may only begin to happen at home.

For smaller stakes and for value we will back the correct score also, of course in Bordeaux’s favour. But we do expect another close game.

  • Bordeaux to beat Saint Etienne at 2.10 (11/10)
