Girondins Bordeaux vs AS Saint-Etienne begins 05.12.2018 at 19:00 CET
Bordeaux played very poorly at the very beginning of the season, and in the first four rounds they were defeated three times, and they also had a poor start in Europa League, which is why they were practically lost in that competition. They can only theoretically get to the knockout stage and it is difficult to expect some miracle, so it is better to focus on the championship where they are again in a long series without triumph. They defeated Nantes with 3-0 nearly two months ago and since then they have played six championship matches without a win.
At the beginning of the series, they lost twice, and then played four draws. For two it can be said that they are worth almost as wins because they played 1-1 at Lyon, and then 2-2 in the last round with PSG on their field. Until that match, the Parisians had all victories but Bordeaux has managed to win one point, though they were losing twice. The second goal scorer, Cornelius, could now be among the starters, as well as midfielder Lerager.
Probable lineups Girondins Bordeaux: Costil – Sabaly, Kounde, Pablo, Poundje – Lerager, Otavio, Sankhare – Karamoh, Cornelius, Kamano
St.Etienne is at the top of the table and they only at the beginning had a longer series without a win, when they mostly recorded unresolved results. After that they started playing better and were mostly in fifth or sixth place. In the previous four rounds they celebrated three times and they were only defeated two rounds ago at Lyon. Before that they made two home triumphs, over Angers and Reims, while they in the last round defeated Nantes on their field with 3-0.
They are one of the best host teams in the league and they have never lost in front of their fans. Thingy are looking much worse when they are playing on the side and they only celebrated once as guests this season, and they had to avoid defeat at Lyon, because they had more players on the field in the last 20 minutes. That match ended with 1-0 for the host, while they did not have the easiest time against Nantes, which the result 3-0 shows. All three goals were scored in the last 20 minutes. Midfielder Hamouma was the only refreshment in the team, and now he could be back on the bench while Beric is expected at the top of the attack.
Probable lineups AS Saint-Etienne: Ruffier – Debuchy, Subotic, Kolodziejczak, G.Silva – Selnaes, M'Vila – Salibur, Cabella, Nordin – Beric
