Metz the Favourites to Win this Weekend
Metz progressed through to the next round of the Coupe de France at the expense of Amiens on Wednesday night, while on that very same evening Strasbourg were dumped out of the competition by Montpellier. With their attention back on Ligue 1 this weekend, Metz are looking to move into the European places with a win while Strasbourg need 3pts to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone.
Metz haven’t lost against Strasbourg since back in 2007, picking up seven wins and five draws during that period. The hosts head into Sunday’s match as the clear form favourites with four wins from their last six matches. Strasbourg have lost three of their last six matches and have only secured one win during that period. We’re not expecting a lot of goals between these two sides as four of Metz’s and four of Strasbourg’s last six fixtures have produced under 2.5 goals.
Strasbourg lost their last away game 3-0 and have failed to score in three of their last four matches, while Metz have scored at least two goals in three of their last five games.
We’re confident that under 2.5 goals will be produced in Sunday’s clash and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-0 in favour of Metz. The hosts are gunning for European football this season, against the odds, while Strasbourg could yet be dragged into a messy relegation fight.
