Bordeaux vs Metz Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Bordeaux and Metz will be facing each other at the Stade Matmut-Atlantique on Saturday evening, with both teams looking for their first victory of the new Ligue 1 season. Bordeaux managed to come from behind to secure a 2-2 away draw at Angers last weekend thanks to goals from Younousse Sankhare and Alexandre Mendy. Metz, on the other hand, threw away a one-goal lead following Nolan Roux’s goal in the 14th minute to succumb to a 1-3 home loss at the hands of Guingamp. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

I’m backing Bordeaux to get back to winning ways in this clash as despite their recent run of form, they are a strong side on home soil and are currently on an eleven-game unbeaten streak. Furthermore, Bordeaux are unbeaten in their last three home meetings with Metz in Ligue 1, conceding just once in the process. Head-to-head, Bordeaux are undefeated in their last eleven meetings with Metz across all competitions.

Bordeaux Preview

After their disappointing elimination at the hands of Videoton from the Europa League third qualifying round a week ago, Bordeaux only managed a 2-2 draw against Angers in the opening round of the new Ligue 1 season last weekend. The only good news was that their summer signing Alexandre Mendy managed to get on the scoresheet on his debut, after joining the club from Guingamp this summer. These results actually came from nowhere as Bordeaux had an impeccable pre-season campaign, winning all four friendlies while conceding just once. Despite this disappointing results, Bordeaux can count on their recent home form ahead of this clash as they are undefeated in the last eleven home fixtures across all competitions, conceding just six goals in the process. In addition, Bordeaux have won two and draw once in their last three home meetings with Metz in Ligue 1, scoring three goals in two of these. Les Girondins have also seen a lot of their players sold this summer, with six new signings joining the club. Apart from Alexandre Mendy, who already scored once last weekend, Bordeaux brought in Youssouf Sabaly, Lukas Lerager and Vukasin Jovanovic for a total fee of €10.5m. All three played for the entire duration of the game, with Jovanic registering a 90% pass success rate.

Bordeaux Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Bordeaux ahead of this clash.

Metz Preview

After a disappointing pre-season campaign, Metz kicked off their new Ligue 1 campaign in a terrible manner, as they threw away a one-goal lead to succumb to a 1-3 home defeat against Guingamp. Conceding has been Metz’s main issue over the past three months as they allowed at least one goal in seven of their last eight games across all competitions. Despite the fact they took the lead last weekend, Metz had few goalscoring opportunities throughout the game, and it seems that the departure of Ismaila Sarr has affected them more than expected. The good news is that Nolan Roux managed to find the back of the net last weekend in his first appearance for Metz after joining the club from Saint-Etienne this summer. The 29-year-old striker has scored just 4 goals in 21 appearances for Les Girondins last year. Away from home, Metz have endured a terrible run of form over the past eight months, winning just three of their last 15 games across all competitions while losing nine. Furthermore, Metz are winless in their last eleven meetings with Bordeaux across all competitions since a 1-0 home win back in 2003.

Vincent Thill and Opa Nguette are both doubts ahead of this trip.
