Saint Etienne vs Bordeaux: Prediction and Betting Tips
Saint Etienne need to find a good home form
With seven points ahead of the relegation zone and 27 points still up for grabs in the season, St. Etienne need to build on their last win in the Ligue 1 against Nimes. That was a very important win for Les Verts and they extended their away winning streak to two games.
Interestingly, coach Claude Puel’s team have won their two away games and lost their two home games in their last four encounters. With just three wins at home all season, St. Etienne need to perform better at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on Sunday if they want to stay safe and maybe even climb the table.
One of the main issues Claude Puel must work on is the number of goals his team concedes at home. In their previous three matches, Les Vert conceded eight goals.
Bordeaux to come out of a slump
One win in ten matches has seen Bordeaux falter down the table. They need to find a win as they are edging closer to the bottom six. Their only win in that run came against bottom club Dijon 3-1, which was only the third time coach Jean-Louis Gasset’s team scored three goals in the league this season and was their first away win in three matches.
This is the least number of points accumulated after 31 matches for Bordeaux in the last ten seasons. And also with just five wins all season, Gasset needs to find solutions for his defensive weaknesses as his team have conceded in all of their last six matches, with an average of two goals per game.
- St.Etienne have failed to win at home in three matches
- St. Etienne have an average of 1.03 goals scored per game this season
- Bordeaux have scored in their last two away matches
- Bordeaux have an average of 1.10 goals scored per game this season
Saint Etienne vs Bordeaux Prediction
This could be one of the most important matches this season for both teams. If any of them lose and Nimes wins, the difference will be just four points and with six matches remaining, anything is possible.
If we look at the stats of these teams we can see that St. Etienne have scored just 14 goals in 15 home games this season, while Bordeaux have scored 19 goals in 15 away matches. We predict this will be a close match with both teams focusing on defense thus we may have a low-scoring game.
