St Etienne vs Bordeaux Match Preview
Bordeaux provided a classic example last week of head-to-head stats overcoming recent form, and that could be the case again when they visit St Etienne.
Les Girondins had not been faring anywhere near as well as opponents Marseille going into their match last Friday, but they had not lost at home to L’OM since 1977 and that undefeated sequence stretched to 36 matches with a 2-0 victory.
Although Bordeaux’s record against St Etienne is nowhere near so emphatic, it is pretty strong over the last seven years and last week’s triumph may have given them the confidence to keep it going.
St Etienne are currently on course for their best Ligue 1 finishing position since 2014 as they sat fourth in the table going into the weekend and therefore in with a great chance of qualifying for the Europa League, with overhauling Lyon for third place looking unlikely.
The Greens’ hopes of Champions League football slipped away with five defeats in eight games between January and March, although they have steadied the ship in recent weeks.
Bordeaux have lost only two of their last eight matches and are unbeaten since Paulo Sousa was appointed manager last month, so that record and also their propensity to gain positive results against St Etienne means they look worth keeping on side here.
