Our football match prediction:
Bordeaux have yet to recover from a shocking loss to Videoton in the Europa League qualifiers. Les Girondins played out a 2-2 draw with Angers in the opening match of the new Ligue 1 campaign and they will be looking to give fans some cheer when they welcome Metz at their Stade Matmut-Atlantique on Saturday evening. Bordeaux are eager to record their first win of the season and seeing that they are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that Jocelyn Gourvennec’s troops will pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match. Les Grenats suffered a heavy 3-1 loss to Guingamp in their opener and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to spoil Bordeaux’s party at Stade Matmut-Atlantique. When the two teams met in Bordeaux earlier in 2017 les Girondins recorded a 3-0 win over les Grenats and the history is likely to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Milan Gajic):
Milan Gajic is a product of OFK Beograd youth academy. The pacey right back, who was born in Vukovar (Croatia) on January 28, 1996 scored four goals in 46 appearances for OFK Beograd from 2013 to 2015 and on July 22, 2015 he signed a five-year deal with Ligue 1 side Bordeaux. Milan Gajic is a youth international for Serbia and he represented the Eagles at the 2017 European Championship. The Serbs failed to impress at the tournament in Poland, with the team losing to Portugal and Spain in Group B, while sharing the spoils with Macedonia. Gajic was a starter in matches against Portugal and Macedonia, but he missed the Spain clash with injury. In 2015, though, Milan Gajic did well to win the FIFA U20 World Cup with Serbia as Veljko Paunovic’s men outplayed Brazil in the title game. His main position is right-back (full-back), but he is capable of playing both central and right midfielder. Milan Gajic made 14 appearances for Bordeaux in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 campaign.
Highlighted Team (Metz):
Thanks to amalgamation of two amateur clubs Metz were founded in 1932 and soon they became a professional team. Les Grenats are one of the oldest professional teams in France, but they have yet to win the Ligue 1 trophy. Metz finished the 1997/1998 season in second place in the standings and it has to be noted that they were level on points with champions Lens (worse goal difference). However, les Grenats won Coupe de France on two occasions (1983/1984, 1987/1988), with the team beating Monaco and Sochaux respectively in the title games. Emmanuel Adebayor is considered one of the most famous players who whore Metz jersey and you should know that the Togolese attacker scored 15 goals in 44 appearances in the league for the club. Metz play their home games at Stade Saint-Symphorien, the venue which was opened back in September, 1923. Les Grenats wear red shirts and white shorts when playing at home, whilst the colour of their away kits is white.
