Bordeaux to score the first goal
Our second pick for this game backs Bordeaux to open the scoring. The visitors boast 13W, 5D and only 2L in the last 20 meetings with Metz. Despite failing to defeat, Bordeaux has a better run of form than Metz in the last five matches. The visitors have 1W, 2D and 2L while Metz has 2D and 3L within the same duration. Metz biggest problem has been a weak defence within that duration.
A result with at least three goals is a plausible outcome in this fixture. Both teams have leaked an average of 2.08 goals in 13 matches so far. Moreover, most of the previous encounters between these teams had more than two goals.

Game Preview: Metz Faces Uncertain Future at the Bottom of Ligue 1 table
Metz has continued to struggle at the bottom of the Ligue 1 table since the start of the season. The hosts have bagged only 8 points in 13 games. The hosts are also ranked the worst team on home record with only 3 points gathered from six home games thus far. The poor home record has seen Metz leak 12 goals and score half of that at Stade Saint Symphorien. And despite collecting four points from Bordeaux last season, a poor form has condemned Metz to zero victories at home. It could get worse if the host fails to defeat Bordeaux in this match. Notably, Bordeaux has been the dominant side in this matchup, bagging 13W, 5D and 2L in previous engagements. A better form puts the visitors in pole position to claim victory against Metz after the international break.
