St Etienne – Bordeaux : Preview & Prediction
Returning home with the 3 points of victory on the lawn of Montpellier (0-1), the Stephanois chained the good performance at the end of the season, occupying a beautiful 5th place in Europe, after having experienced a long period of doubt. In front of them, the Girondins de Bordeaux will present themselves to Geoffroy Guichard with the weak hope of hanging a European place at the end of the championship.
In the first leg, the Bordeaux had beaten AS Saint-Etienne 3-0, during the long period of misfits of Stephanois, who will be revenge for this return match.
On the last 5 meetings, Saint-Etienne has an excellent record of 4 wins and a draw.
Saint-Etienne has not lost in Ligue 1 for more than 13 games. Their last defeat goes back to January 2018 (1-0 on the lawn of Nice)
Bordeaux leaves often empty-handed of his displacements with Saint-Etienne. The last victory of the Girondins at Geoffroy Guichard dates back to the 2011-2012 season (win 2-3).
The St Etienne have an impressive record since the beginning of 2018, to the point of being passed from the bottom of the table to an honorable 5th place, qualifier for the Europa League. In Geoffroy Guichard’s cauldron, Saint-Étienne often meets the big teams. Faced with Bordelais having a small chance of hanging Europe at the end of the season, the St Etienne will be motivated to offer the 3 points to their public, and so take an option on qualifying for the next Europa League. We opt for a victory for Saint-Étienne.
