Metz vs Bordeaux
French Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 21st September 2016
Kick Off: 18:00 BST
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien (Metz).
So when it came down to it Metz and Dijon who have met each other countless times in Ligue 1 just knew each other too well and the match ended 0-0. The result means that Metz have had a very good start to their Ligue 1 campaign where they are in 4th place and have lost just one game.
Bordeaux will attempt to end the fairy tale but here we have a very inconsistent team and for punters it is normal to be a little afraid at what team will turn up each week. They let down a lot of fans with their 1-0 home loss to Angers and that was supposed to be the game that was going to spear head their campaign. Now they are asked to go to inform Metz to get a result. A win for Bordeaux would see them leapfrog their hosts and this could be great motivation.

Metz v Bordeaux: Prediction
There is only one name on our minds in what should be a tight game and that is Metz striker Mevlut Erdinc who has scored 5 goals already this season and he missed a penalty against Dijon. At home he should be backed. Bordeaux can come here and get the desired result but as said earlier they need to find consistency.
