Note: bookmakers' policies on voided matches changes so we always recommend players to check the specific terms of bookmakers they bet with to ensure they understand under what circumstances they void bets. Void bets occur when the bet is not decided as a win or loss and the stake is returned to the player. a common void bet occurs in tennis when a player retires through injury. This happens when a match is suspended, posponed, or cancelled e.g.

The 182-cm-tall left back made his Toulouse debut on 15 September, 2007 against Marseille, coming from the bench in the second half of the match. Born in Toulouse on 23 July, 1988, Cheikh MBengue started his youth career at FA Roques. In 1996 Toulouse scouts spotted him and he soon joined the French team. A week later he made his first start for les Pitchouns in a 2-0 loss to Saint Etienne.

The man that is one of the most responsible for those has been wide midfielder Mathieu Dossevi. Metz have only grabbed 14 goals in 20 matches this season, so goals have clearly been hard to come by and that is a big part of the reason they are bottom at present. His five assists have proven to be crucial so far, and if they are to stay up they will need the Togo man to continue his fine personal form.

St Etienne did not start this season in a good way as they only have 5 points from 5 games played. We dont usually see many goals being scored in their duels. In fact, we saw both teams scoring only once in their previous 7 matches. Last time these two teams faced each other they defeated Metz 2:0. These two teams have played a lot of games in their recent Head-to-Head history, with St Etienne being a better rival most of the time.

St Etienne vs Metz H2H

New manager Ghislain Printant has only taken charge of seven matches so far but he has already been asked to resign by the clubs hierarchy, according to reports. Printant won his first game of the season but they have been in free fall since then with four losses and two draws in the six games since. Possibly their worst result yet came at the weekend as they were thrashed 4-1 by last years 13th place side Angers.

Les Grenats, on the other hand, suffered back-to-back defeats to the likes of Troyes and Nantes in previous two league fixtures and we predict that they will extend their losing run in the French elite division this weekend. It has to be noted that Metz are after their first win over Saint-Etienne since 2001. Saint-Etienne made a flying start to the season, but they have been struggling to find their best form in the Ligue 1 of late. Les Verts recorded only one win in previous five league fixtures and they have been slipping down the standings week by week. French rising star Jonathan Bamba has netted four goals in the national championship so far this term and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Oscar Garcias men are eyeing a place in European competitions and, no doubt, they will take Saturdays football match against Metz very seriously.

Both teams are looking to secure as good as a possible result, hoping to achieve as high finish as possible in their domestic league. Both teams are having a lot of trouble defending their goal, but with their bad attack, we can not easily predict goals to be scored on both ends.

The newcomers, on the other hand, are on a four-game losing run in the French elite division and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Saint-Etiennes party at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard. Metz aim to put an end to their four-game losing run in the French top flight, but beating les Verts on the road is easier said than done.

Over the years Saint-Etienne have turned their stadium into a real fortress and we predict that they are going to return to winning ways in the French elite division on Wednesday evening. Les Verts experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss at Angers in their last league match and there is every chance Wahbi Khazri will return to the starting XI against les Grenats. Saint-Etienne play host to Metz at their Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on day 7 of the new Ligue 1 campaign.

Khazri was producing fine performances with les Girondins from 2014 to 2016 and, as a result, Sunderland chiefs decided to sign him on 30 January, 2016. The attacking midfielder, who is capable of playing as a winger as well, netted 31 goals in 171 league games for Bastia and in 2014 he moved to fellow Ligue 1 team Bordeaux. After spending his youth career at JS Ajaccio and Bastia, Wahbi Khazri continued playing for les Bleus at senior level.

Thanks to amalgamation of two amateur clubs Metz were founded in 1932 and soon they became a professional team. 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). Les Grenats are one of the oldest professional teams in France, but they have yet to win the Ligue 1 trophy.

This is a crucial match and must be one in which they earn points. Expert Verdict: It has been a long, long while since Metz have been able to get one over on St. They have never established themselves in the league, and they are once again in danger of checking out. Yes, a lot of that time has been spent in a different league to their visitors, but that is really the point here. Etienne.
