Bordeaux or Draw

With our first free betting tip, we back the unbeaten in the last 7 rounds (W5 D2) Girondines to at least earn a draw and maintain their slim lead over Metz in the battle for promotion. Bordeaux are undefeated in their last 9 away games vs Metz too.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our next Metz vs Bordeaux prediction is that there will be fewer than 3 total goals scored in this match. All of Metz’s last 7 home games went under 2.5 goals. So did, all of Bordeaux’s last 5 league matches.

Under 1.5 Metz Goals

Our final Metz vs Bordeaux prediction is that Metz won’t be able to score more than 1 goal in the match. Metz are very solid defensively but going forward they have issues often. They’ve scored more than 1 goal in only 1 of their last 5 home league matches. Now they are up against a Bordeaux defence that kept 3 consecutive clean sheets and didn’t concede more than 1 goal in any of the last 7 rounds.

Metz vs Bordeaux Lineups and Team News

Metz

Metz extended their unbeaten league run to 13 (W7 D6) with a scrappy 1-1 away draw vs Pau. Played well only in the first half of that match and once more failed to record a win against a team in trouble.

The gaffer is happy that all of his regulars are fit and available. Even the missing until recently midfielder Maiga is back with the group. With the options plenty Maziz and Oukidja could lose their starting roles as both made bad mistakes last weekend.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux opened a 4-point lead in the race for promotion after achieving their third win in a row. Played very well when beating another of their direct rivals for the second spot Bastia 2-0 at home. Maja and Fransergio were very impressive in this match and both scored. Bordeaux have shown the best form in the entire division over the last 7 rounds (W5 D2).

The main issue for the coming match is the suspension of the starting right-back Bokele. However, in Michelin a very good cover option is available. The only serious injury concern is for Sissokho.
