Metz vs Bordeaux
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 8th February 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien.
Metz’s great recovery continued in midweek when they drew against Montpellier and the club have not lost a game since the beginning of December. This rich form has seen the club move into 16th but they are 6 points from the bottom three. Still that seems too close for comfort and they can make headways by getting three points in this game at the weekend.
Though Metz have only won 4 games at home this season that includes winning their last 2 in a row here where they have beaten Strasbourg and Saint Etienne.
Bordeaux are in 12th place with 31 points and they drew against Brest in midweek. They have drawn their last two games and that includes against 2nd place Marseille which was a decent result. However the club has only won 1 game from their past five. On the road they have gone their last two matches unbeaten and have picked up 16 points from a possible 36.

Metz vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Metz have the form, but Bordeaux are just that bit better as a squad. However, it is important to note how superior Bordeaux have been against Metz in the past years and we are going to back them to get the win here.
We would keep stakes low though as Metz’s form should be respected. Bordeaux are a great price also.
Bordeaux player Jimmy Briand has scored a few against Metz and he is worth backing to score anytime and like his team to win is a really good price to do so.
Metz vs Bordeaux: Bet Tips:
Bordeaux to beat Metz at 3.00 (2/1)
Anytime goalscorer: Jimmy Briand (Bordeaux) at 4.00 (3/1).
