Saint-Etienne vs Bordeaux
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 6th May 2018
Kick off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard (St Etienne).
Apart from Lyon, St Etienne have been the best form side in Ligue 1 where they have gone their last 5 games unbeaten and come here after winning 3 in a row. Their brilliant form has put them in the coveted 5th place which is the last position for a Europa League place and the team has a 1 point advantage over Rennes and Nice.
St Etienne need to keep on winning as the games come thick and fast, the option is simple: win the last 3 games and they have 5th the chance is in their hands. The club have a good home record even if they have drawn too many games they have only lost 3 times and recently almost beat PSG but conceded a very late equaliser.
Bordeaux are not in the mix for 5th spot, but things could change very quick; because if they won this match they would be just two points behind St Etienne. Form is decent with 3 wins in their last four games but away from home it’s been more of a struggle with 3 recent losses although we must point out that they won their last away game against Montpellier which was an impressive 3-1 victory.
Saint-Etienne vs Bordeaux: Head to Head

Saint-Etienne vs Bordeaux: Prediction
The home side have been terrific lately and we will back them to win this game. Bordeaux have a very small chance to mount a challenge for 5th but in reality there are too many teams between them and that chance. St Etienne have more to play for and are at home where they have been strong all season. It would be a big surprise not to see them win this game.
