Metz to find a much needed second win in a row

Metz are definitely showing that they will fight to get out of the relegation zone. Notably, the Maroons are undefeated in their last four matches having drawn three and won one. In fact, that win came in the last round against high-flying Nice who are third in Ligue 1 table. And that was Metz’s first home win and second overall of the season.

Markedly, the Maroon’s home form is not encouraging as they collected just four of their 12 points at Stade Saint-Symphorien. In addition, conceding on average 2.14 goals at home has worsened coach Frederic Antonetti’s team’s home record. However, a win here, and Metz could see themselves leap some 2-3 positions and out of the relegation zone.

A rare away win is what La Paillade are aiming for

Traveling on the back of two Ligue 1 defeats to nil, Montpellier need some inspiration. In fact, La Paillade have not lost three games in a row without scoring since May 2017. At the beginning of the season, Montpellier had a rather fine start and were tipped to finish in European spots. However, three defeats in their last five games saw them slip out of the top ten.

Notably, last season La Paillade lost just once in their final 13 away games. But this season, coach Dall’Oglio’s team has one victory in their seven trips. Nonetheless, Dall’Oglio won in four of his five managerial visits to Metz. Still, a much better scoring performance is needed by Metz as they scored three times in their last five away games.
