Metz vs Bordeaux
French Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 6th January 2021
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien (Metz).
Metz are in 10th place and will be feeling happy with themselves after almost getting to the halfway stage of the season and being 11 points from the bottom three. Their survival this season looks almost assured unless they have a complete meltdown which shouldn’t happen now.
Metz did see a 3 game unbeaten streak come to an end in their last game as they lost 1-0 to Rennes. But the club are in decent form and have only lost once in their last four games.
Bordeaux are just a point behind Metz and could go past them with victory. But recent form has not been good and the club have lost 3 of their last four games.
On the road Bordeaux have lost 50% of their games but have been quite inconsistent, including drawing 2-2 with PSG but then losing to Lille although their last game ended in a 2-0 victory over Strasbourg.

Metz vs Bordeaux Prediction
Bordeaux aren’t an easy team to predict and they will not be an easy opponent for Metz.
It is clear that Bordeaux have a great record over Metz and we should keep an eye on them because history and patterns in football are very good at repeating.
Metz are in good form but what we really have here are two mid table teams who are in this position because of consistency issues. We do not expect to see a great game and the midfield battle will decide this one but we will opt for a narrow away victory.
