Bordeaux vs Metz: Free Tips and Predictions
A thrilling reverse fixture ended 3-3, setting the stage for another duel in this second encounter of the season. Lack of Ligue 1 victory for both teams in the last five games should worry both sides ahead of this weekend’s fixture. Our best tips and predictions for the Ligue 1 match are:
Both teams to score: No @ 4/5 (1.80)
We are tipping no goals on both sides. These teams have had goal draughts and it is unlikely that they will regain a scoring form now. The hosts couldn’t score in four of their last five games while Metz didn’t score in three of their previous five matches. We expect a low tempo game that will not yield a lot of goals.
Total goals: Under 2.5@ 33/50 (166)
Our second tip is anchored on the first one. These are struggling teams, fighting a relegation battle with seven games to go. The main focus of both teams is to get at least a point in every game and with no scoring formula, we don’t see more than two goals in this Ligue 1 duel.
