Bordeaux vs Saint-Etienne Match Preview
Saint-Etienne travel to Bordeaux for their Matchday 10 clash on Sunday afternoon as they return to Ligue 1 after the International break, having rediscovered some consistency beforehand and now hoping to build on their three-match unbeaten streak across competitions with points at Stade Matmut-Atlantique.
Les Verts have beaten Nimes (0-1) and Lyon (1-0) in their last two league outings, also holding Wolfsburg to a 1-1 draw in Europa League along the way. They’ve been tougher to beat and while they’ve struggled with injuries, Claude Puel has set up a tough line at the back and will certainly want to show off once again.
Bordeaux have felt somewhat more unpredictable lately but they’ve still bagged 15 points in their first four league outings, only seeing a lengthy unbeaten streak interrupted by PSG (0-1) where a single goal from Neymar made all the difference. They bounced with a 1-3 win over Toulouse since and we now expect them just as motivated.
Girondins have been scoring numbers of goals on the regular and we’ve seen them bag ten in the last five outings. However, they’ve also conceded on the regular and will have to find their stability at the back if they’re to secure all three points in front of the home fans this time around.
We thus hope to see another narrow occasion in Bordeaux and we’ll now back the home side to turn it their way, as we go for a Home win to Nil priced at 13/5 with bet365. Visitors have felt far from convincing in the final third and this feels like further evidence for such a bet.
This should still prove far from a one-sided contest and we feel slim margins could make all the difference. With that in mind, we’re now also going for a low-scoring contest with Under 2.5 Goals FT at 8/13 with William Hill – which has been rated a banker bet by many in the know.
