Tonight at 21:45, “Stade Geoffroy-Guichard” will host the dispute between Saint Etienne vs Bordeaux, where I expect a balanced match in which the goals will come in small numbers.
Saint Etienne is slightly favorite this evening, according to the odds offered by most betting agencies, its main advantage being its own ground, where supporters could play an important role. “Greens” make a decent season, currently ranked 7th in the French championship, being quite far from the European spot.
In the 34 games so far, Christophe Galtier’s team has gained 49 points, managing 12 victories and 13 draws, suffering 9 defeats in these games scoring 38 goals, receiving 8 fewer. In the last seven official games, Saint-Etienne suffered a single defeat, against Marseille, being defeated 4 – 0 away.
Bordeaux on the other side is ranked second in bookmakers, at least equal to his opponent, but is disadvantaged by the fact that he will move away. Bordeaux do not make a bad season, being at the top of the rankings, ranking more precisely in the 5th position, with great chances to be back again in European competitions next season.
Jocelyn Gourvennec’s team has gathered 49 points in the 35 stages so far, with 15 victories and 11 draws, losing 9 times, scoring 49 goals, receiving ten more. Bordeaux is in good shape, coming after four games without failure, managing three wins and a draw, matches in which they did not get a goal.
Saint Etienne vs Bordeaux : Probable Teams
SAINT-ETIENNE : Ruffier – Gabriel, Perrin, Theophile-Catherine, Malcuit – Pajot, Selnaes, Veretout – Monnet-Paquet, Beric, Hamouma
BORDEAUX : Carrasso – Gajic, Pallois, Lewczuk, Sabaly – Sankhare, Toulalan, Vada – Kamano, Laborde, Malcom
In the field will meet two teams with close value , both having a pretty good defensive game, so I expect a balanced game, where goals come in small numbers.
