Saint-Etienne vs Bordeaux
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 8th March 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
Saint Etienne come into this game in 16th place and their worries continue with form bad enough that the club could get involved in a relegation struggle. They have 29 points and are only two clear of the bottom three. Last weekend they lost their 14th game of the season losing 2-0 to Lyon.
Despite their poor form there has been some good news this week and that was their victory by 2-1 over Rennes in the French Cup. They will be hoping to use that win against the club currently in 3rd place as a springboard to doing well this weekend and picking up a much needed three points.
Bordeaux are in 12th and seven points clear of their hosts. Form has not been good for the club also with too many recent results ending in draws and they have won just 1 game from their past five. Last weekend they drew against Nice 1-1.
On the road they have won 5 games from 14 and also lost 5 but before getting beaten by PSG, in their last away game they managed to go 3 matches unbeaten.

Saint-Etienne vs Bordeaux: Prediction
These teams have lots of draws between them, especially recently and the main choice for us will be to see more goals in the 2nd half of a game that could start slowly without too much quality.
Saint Etienne need the points but can’t afford to be bold and attack whilst Bordeaux don’t need to attack, so we think this game may not be the most entertaining of the weekend. We will also back the draw at half time, and these two choices are decent prices and good value for us.
