Both teams to score @7/10 (1.70)
Both sides have defensive challenges, which have largely contributed to their off form in the current season. While Bordeaux should bank on home support to edge out Saint-Etienne in this game, the hosts defeated Etienne only once in the last seven meetings, drawing once and losing the other five duels. All the last five meetings between these teams had goals on both sides.
Over 2.5 @9/10 (1.90)
The last five games have revealed a shaky trend on both ends and there is no denying that these teams haven’t done well recently. For example, Bordeaux lost 6-1 to Lyon last weekend, a scoreline that revealed poor defending. In the four losses from the last six games, Bordeaux leaked at least two goals in those losses. On the other hand, Etienne lost 4-2 to Marseille and 6-2 to Lorient before a 2-1 win over Brest last weekend. Poor defending on both ends is the reason we feel this will be a high scoring duel.
