Bordeaux vs Saint-Etienne
French Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 5 December 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Stade Matmut-Atlantique (Bordeaux).
Bordeaux have finally ended their lengthy winless streak as they beat Slavia Praha on Thursday and their busy schedule continues as they host Saint-Etienne for their Matchday 16 on Wednesday – just days after doing the same for Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday.
Les Girondins sit in the mid-table and lag nine points behind the rivals at this point but they’ll surely be very motivated to use the chance and catch up with the rivals, boasting a rather solid streak at Stade Matmut-Atlantique despite a general lack of stability surrounding Eric Bedouet’s men.
Saint-Etienne travel to Bordeaux after ending their respective streak without a win on Friday, where they beat Nantes and finally bounced back, after a 1-0 Ligue 1 loss to Lyon and a Coupe de la Ligue loss to Nimes seen after it. They’ve had obvious struggles on the road and this will be even more worrying, where one point in three league trips since early October will be nowhere near as promising.
Bordeaux vs Saint-Etienne: Head-to-head
Bordeaux have bagged four wins and a draw in the sides’ last five head-to-head clashes.
Saint-Etienne haven’t snatched a win at this ground since February 2016, despite some very exciting challenges along the way.
Girondins have earned 19 wins and 12 draws in 42 matchups against Saint-Etienne so far, very motivated to build on the streak here.
Bordeaux vs Saint-Etienne: Prediction
We do believe they can do so and we’ll now stick with a Home win at 2.25, which does feel like a great value seeing St Etienne’s struggles to earn points away from home. Bordeaux have been rather solid at Stade Matmut-Atlantique and this has many value seekers getting behind the bet as well.
However, we have seen Saint-Etienne scoring goals in head to head clashes regularly and they promise a solid challenge now as well, as we now back a YES on Both teams to score at 1.95. Bordeaux haven’t really sailed to smooth clean sheets lately and this adds value to the bet, as we head into another exciting head-to-head clash in the making.
