Bordeaux look to be staging a perfectly timed run in order to snatch a Champions League place in Ligue 1.
Three points today will actually take them into the promised land of 3rd place, even a point will leave their fate in theie own hands, as they face a home game against second placed Lens, who they currently trail by 4 points, next week.
They are now unbeaten in 7, have conceded only one goal in 6 starts and recently won the Coupe de la Ligue, things are on the up and they will even be looking to reclaim the second place they earned last season. Les Girondins looked excellent in the 3-0 win over nancy in midweek and will be further boosted by the return of playmaker Johan Micoud, this evening.
St Etienne are talented, but very inconsistent, as dictated by their home record of 10-0-6, two key players Feindoun and Gomis will face late tests, though both are expected to start.
Cream tends to rise to the top at this stage of the season , the visitors have not lost in 7 meetings with the hosts and I confidently expect that to become 8 tonight.
