Bordeaux earns point over St. Etienne
League Cup winner Saint-Etienne's second straight draw leaves it fourth and one point behind third-place Lyon, which has played one game fewer and travels to Nancy on Sunday.
Saint-Etienne top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who missed several chances in last weekend's 1-1 draw at local rival Lyon, went close in the first half and wasted a chance late on when he shot into the side-netting. Strike partner Brandao missed a good chance earlier when he placed his header straight at goalkeeper Cedric Carrasso.
On Saturday, second-place Marseille hosts Bastia.
Leader Paris Saint-Germain, which is nine points clear of Marseille, hosts Valenciennes on Sunday.
