Match Preview & Team News
Saint-Etienne played another poor game this season in the last round against Montpellier and despite possessing the ball for most of the match, they failed to counter and lost 2-0.
Bordeaux occupies the last place in the table and 5 games so far the team has conceded 12 goals, three of them in their home game against Lens a week ago, which Bordeaux lost 2:3. The visitors took a 0:2 lead in the first half and with goals from Ricardo Mangas and Jean Emile Junior Onana in the second half, the Girondins managed to equalize. Florian Sotoca scored the winning goal for Lens in added time.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Saint-Etienne started their Ligue 1 campaign with three consecutive draws against Lorient, Lens, and Lille. At the end of August, Marseille inflicted a 3-1 defeat on Claude Puel’s squad, and two weeks later Montpellier did the same.
Newcomer Clermont Footy, who conceded their first loss in Ligue 1 in the last round, defeated Bordeaux 0:2 away at the start of the championship, and the two subsequent draws with Olympique Marseille and Angers were not enough for the Girondins to get into the necessary rhythm. In the fourth round, Bordeaux conceded their heaviest defeat to date – 4-0 to Nice at the Allianz Riviera.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Both teams have struggled badly in attack so far this season and have only scored 5 goals each. I predict under 2.5 goals in the match.
Saint Etienne has had a tough schedule so far, and the upcoming home game against Bordeaux is a good time for the team to get their first win since the start of their Ligue 1 campaign. This is my prediction for the match.
