The Girondins welcome FC Metz to the Matmut Atlantique on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. Given the current form of both these sides, it’s a struggle to see where a winner may come from at the moment. The pair take up 20th and 19th respectively in the form table and neither has won any of their last seventeen matches between them.
FC Girondins Bordeaux come into the match on a run of eight league games without a win having also failed to score in each of their last four. They have picked up three points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.
Le club au scapulaire’s last league match, away to LOSC Lille, ended in a dull 0-0 draw. Expected goals of 3.2 to 0.1 in favour of Lille indicates it was a minor miracle that Bordeaux escaped from the game with a point. Bordeaux have Gaetan Poussin to thank for the clean sheet here, who kept Lille out despite giving up 3.2 xGs worth of chances at the back by making six saves.
The Les Girondins fans will be particularly disappointed with the attacking performance as they registered just two shots, neither of which was on target.
Hwang Ui-Jo, who had their only shot inside the box here, is FC Girondins Bordeaux’s top scorer with ten goals in Ligue 1 this season and is the 2.625/1 favourite to score against FC Metz on Sunday.
Their opponent on Sunday, FC Metz, come into the match on a run of nine league games without a win. They have picked up three points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.
The Maroons lost their last league match at home to AS Monaco FC. Expected goals of 2.2 to 0.7 in favour of Monaco almost perfectly mirror the scoreline and indicate perhaps it was a fair result.
Ibrahim Amadou will be disappointed that his equaliser on the hour mark for Metz didn't earn any points for his side. It was Amadou’s first league goal of this season and he is 9,5/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-2.
