Bordeaux vs Metz
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 14 September 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Matmut Atlantique (Bordeaux)
Whilst Bordeaux have only won 1 game so far they are in 11th place and will be pleased with themselves pulling off a 1-1 draw away to Bordeaux in their last game before the international break.
And the result wasn’t a lucky one, they had 18 goal attempts and gave Lyon who are supposed to be the nearest challengers this season to PSG a real game. Have Bordeaux woken up from their sluggish start in the league?
The good news for Bordeaux is despite losing their first game of the campaign they have actually gone 3 games unbeaten and should start as the favourites to win this game.
Metz are in 15th and they gained 4 points from their first two games however form has dipped slightly and they come into this game having lost their last two matches in a row. They can be forgiven in their last game which was a 2-0 loss against PSG. Metz could surpass Bordeaux in the standings with a win here.
Bordeaux vs Metz: Head to Head
Bordeaux have won the last 4 meetings between the teams.

Bordeaux vs Metz: Prediction
This looks like being a home win. Bordeaux showed great character away to Lyon and there is nothing that suggest they cannot inflict wave of wave of attacks on the Metz goal.
Simply put Metz have always had a hard time against Bordeaux and we expect a comfortable home win here. We will also back Jimmy Briand to score for the home side. He is an experienced striker and his confidence will be high after scoring against Lyon in his last game.
