Bordeaux vs. St.Etienne [Prediction, January 26th]

The former French Cup champions return to Ligue 1 after being shamefully eliminated from the Cup they were supposed to defend, after they lost by penalty shootouts against a team placed 5th in CFA 2, the fifth division from the French Championship. William Hill offers decent odds for both teams, yet somehow they follow the trend of favoring the visitors, Saint Etienne, which are placed fourth.

Bordeaux simply cannot find the winning streak that might keep them in the top 10 of Ligue 1, and they even started losing not only to top placed teams like PSG, but also to teams much inferior than them on paper. The most recent one is from a few days ago against Bastia placed 12th. They will also be missing Marc Planus, out with a knee injury, who might be back in the second half of February.
St. Etienne has a prize waiting for them at the end of this match, the possibility to challenge Lille for their Champions League qualifications spot. Last Friday they won against Lille with 2-0, played wonderfully and managed to keep another clean sheet. However they have a list of injuries that might hinder their performance a little since they’re missing out on Clerc, Bayesse and Diomande with knee injuries, plus Saadi with a groin strain until the middle of February.

Since St.Ettiene are fully expected to dominate this match, and can score through Diabate or Jussie, you can bet on them to win to nil at 4.55 or for Bordeaux in the same market at 3.60. We are going to bet 7 units on St.Etienne to win the first half at 3.62 with odds from William Hill.
