Reason For St Etienne VS Bordeaux Betting Tips

Both of these sides will have their parts to play in the race for 4th place in Ligue 1, with the visitors having a real chance of snatching the position and with it a place in next season’s Europa League. Currently, Lyon are in pole position in 4th, and are a point ahead of Bordeaux with a game in hand on their rivals. The race could be set to go to the wire, but the away side will expect to have a tough test when they travel to St Etienne on Friday night.

The home side were themselves in Europa League action earlier this season before being dumped out of the contest by Manchester United. They then fell away in the league in which they were at one stage in the top 5, but have recovered in recent weeks and now have only lost 1 game in 7 matches. They are now sitting in 7th and will do well to finish any higher than that. St Etienne have not been among the higher scorers in the league, managing only 38 goals from 34 matches this season. If they are to try and finish any further up the table in 2017/18, then they will need to find the net much more often.

Bordeaux have, like their opponents, been in solid form going into the match, losing just one of their last six games. Lyon have recovered after slightly wobbling in recent weeks and are now in pole position to claim 4th. But a win here for Bordeaux would put them back above Lyon with that side not due to play until Sunday afternoon.

With both teams close together in the division, we see this being a tight game so our advice is to back a Both Teams To Score Yes bet at odds of 3/4 with bet365.

For our correct score prediction, we see the match finishing 1-1 at odds of 5/1 also with bet365.
