Niang frees the Girondins, who take the lead

New change for Metz

Yade replaces Kana-Biyik.

Niang’s attempt!

Dilrosun, meanwhile, thinks Niang is perfect. The Bordeaux striker shoots low to the ground, but is captured by Caillard. No double for Niang for the time being.

2nd goal of the season for Niang

David Guion had bet today to start with Mbaye Niang for the second time this season. Winning bet since the striker scored his second goal of the season.


NIANG RELEASES BORDEAUX! Mangas finds Mensah deep to the left. The Ghanaian immediately puts in front of Niang, who throws himself and bounces the ball into the Messin goal. 2-1 for the Girondins just over 20 minutes before the end of the game.

Niang collapses in the box

He probably suffered a broken leg on the edge of the penalty area. He asks for a penalty, but the referee says nothing, neither does the VAR.

Mafouta against Poussin

The Messin striker stumbles on the Bordeaux goalkeeper but is spotted offside no matter what happens on the action.

Gregersen struck again

He leaves and returns directly to the dressing room, having been touched already in the first period. He is replaced by Mensah.

The return in extremis of N’Doram!

Niang had passed and he had been looking for Dilrosun in the middle of the penalty area. De Messin intercepts the pass at the last minute, but Metz suffers.

Mafouta replaces Lamkel Zé

The Messin striker was very useful, outside his goal, his first at FC Metz.

Deserved goal for Mangas

The left side of Bordeaux is one of the best players today, very active on his side. He makes a difference on the ball and is precise in his passes and passes. This goal rewards his successful performance.

Hwang’s attempt!

It is framed but covered by the Messin goalkeeper.


BORDEAUX RETURNS TO THE SCORE! Dilrosun brings danger again. He tries to find Hwang inside, but a defender from Metz covers the ball. It returns to Mangas, launched, firing at target. His attempt is also countered, but it ends up in the back of the net. 1-1.

Manga for Niang!

The center of the left flank of Bordeaux is good, after a good counterattack. But Niang can’t catch the ball with his head, hindered by a defender.

First corner for Bordeaux

David Guion’s players leave with the same offensive ambitions as at the end of the first period.

Here we go again

The Girondins de Bordeaux kick off the second half.

Boulaya comes into play

He replaced De Préville at the start of the second period.

479 minutes without scoring for Bordeaux

The Girondins’ last goal was against Clermont on February 27.

It’s intermission, 1-0 for Metz

Bronca of Bordeaux supporters, but it’s brutal. The Girondins had a good first period, with many opportunities. They lacked realism in front of goal and were punished as the game progressed by Lamkel Zé’s Metz goal.

Bordeaux tries to project itself quickly

The Girondins want to have one last chance to equalize before halftime.

Kouyaté warned

De Messin made a mistake before the corner was taken for Metz.


Niang’s recovery misses! Found at the end of a match in one touch of the ball in the area, the Bordeaux striker tries his luck after a chest check. It is not far, emphasizes Bordeaux.

New Dilrosun Gear

He pierces the Metz defense, but loses the ball on his last touch of the ball. He is the one who creates the most Bordeaux lace.

Dilrosun makes the difference!

It is often through him that the good deeds of Bordeaux pass. Found deep by an excellent pass from Onana, he goes to the line to try to get back, but is countered by the Messina defence.

It’s getting hot between Lacoux and Lamkel Zé

Yellow card for both. Lacoux had fouled the Cameroonian striker, but de Messin then overreacted.

Caillard’s Parade!

Ahmedhodzic’s head is narrowly deflected by Caillard for a corner, it was hot. Bordeaux is once again dangerous.

Warming up Baysse and Adli

David Guion may be planning to switch systems during the break. Metz’s goal and Bordeaux’s injuries broke the rhythm of the game and stopped the dynamics of Bordeaux, which were very positive at the start of the game.

Gregersen back in action

The Bordeaux defender briefly left the playing field and took his place again.

Gregersen doesn’t get up

The Norwegian defender is tied up on the field, the match is stopped. Meanwhile, Lacoux does come into play to replace Pembélé.

Pembélé replaced, Gregersen touched

It is the massacre of the Bordelais. Two defenders were hit in two minutes. Lacoux comes in to replace Pembélé, while Gregersen is treated to the pitch.

Lamkel Zé only for his 2nd game

The Cameroonian striker, who has just arrived in Metz, played an hour against Monaco last week. He therefore scored his first goal with the Messis in his second game, in a capital meeting.


METZ OPEN THE SCORE TO THE PLAY! The MEssins play the corner obtained by Sarr in two phases. Lamkel Zé is well placed at the center reception and his header is impeccable to trick Poussin. 1-0 for Metz, it’s cruel for the Girondins.

Sarr’s attempt!

Metz finally leaves his camp and Sarr fires a low shot that embarrasses Poussin. The Bordeaux goalkeeper bends for a corner.

Niang nearby

On a second ball after an eccentric free kick, Niang tries to follow him, but he scrambles into traffic and can’t shoot.

Metz can’t keep the ball

As soon as they have it, Frédéric Antonetti’s players swing forward and return possession to the Bordelais.

Niang in the small outside net!

Another good Bordeaux reversal, from Hwang to Niang. The Girondins striker fixes the defender and tries to hit the post, but it goes just wide.

Bordeaux has put the ingredients in this game

The first 10 minutes of the Girondins are successful, with intensity, play and two big chances. We must now maintain this level.


IT WAS NECESSARY! On a corner of Bordeaux, Pembélé shoots just above the ground. His shot is missed but turns into a pass for Guilavogui, only from close range, who tries his luck but bumps into the Metz goalkeeper.


Good order of the Girondins going from side to side and settling near the surface of Messina. It ends with a very good cross from Hwang and a header from Onana that goes just over.

Good acceleration from Dilrosun

The attacking midfielder from Bordeaux provokes the ball and progresses. He is mowed down by N’Doram and gets a good free kick.

Hurry start of the game

One mistake on Onana, another on Pajot. The start of the match is characterized by intensity, both teams want to show that they are there.

Let’s go to Matmut Atlantique

The kick-off is given by FC Metz. Woe to the loser this afternoon, but the winner, if there is one, retains hope of survival.

Niang, 2nd term at Bordeaux

The first time was during the 6-0 blow in Rennes, last January. Recall that Niang played his first game with Bordeaux in October 2021. He is currently looking for his 2nd goal with the Girondins – the 1st came in the defeat to PSG.

Bordeaux does well against Metz

The Girondins give a little hope this Sunday afternoon.

Bordeaux and Metz haven’t won since January

The Girondins’ last win in Ligue 1 was against Strasbourg on January 23. For Metz, it’s a little older since it was January 16 against Reims. We are approaching three months without a win for both teams.
