Saint-Etienne vs Bordeaux
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 14th April 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard (Saint Etienne).
Saint Etienne are in 4th place on 50 points and while a Europa League place looks realistic they have no less than 4 challengers trying to finish in that spot with a difference of just five points so there is all to play for.
But perhaps Saint Etienne are looking even further than that, after all Lyon’s latest loss means that there is just a 6 point gap to 3rd place and that would secure a Champions League play off position for the club which would cap an amazing season for them.
The clubs last game ended in a disappointing 2-2 draw at lowly Amiens however they have still gone their last 3 games without defeat.
Bordeaux got a very solid and professional 2-0 win over Marseille in their last game. Bordeaux are in 13th place and very safe and have gone their last 4 games unbeaten, although 3 of those have ended in draws.
Away from home the club have been poor and have the 3rd worst record in the league where they have won just 2 games all season. Although they have drawn their last two games on the road and might just be improving.

Saint-Etienne vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Our bet here is to see a draw. There isn’t much difference in quality for the teams even if the home side have a better league advantage. Both have also become quite hard to beat and we can see most of the play coming in the midfield, so we will back the draw and try to predict the correct score. There have been a lot of draws in Ligue 1 football this season and we can see this match being typical of that result.
