Bastia vs Metz
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 10th December 2016
Kick off at 19:00 UK Time
Venue: Stade Armand Cesari.
Bastia continued their winless run last weekend as they were thrashed 5-0 at Monaco. They will welcome a return to familiar surroundings but what has that game done to their confidence? Now Bastia find themselves in the relegation zone and it will be interesting to see if they can bounce back immediately.
In theory Metz haven’t played for two weeks given that their match which they were winning v Lyon had to be abandoned because some fans had thrown firecrackers by the goalkeeper. Away from home Metz actually has the 6th best record in Ligue 1, however we should be cautious with this stat given that they have lost 3 out of the last four matches on the road.
Bastia vs Metz: Head to Head Stats
Bastia won this fixture last time here 2-0 and have won the last 4 matches at home v Metz going back to 2010. The last time Metz got a victory here was in 2009. Metz has just 1 victory from the past six fixtures either home or away. The win result of 3-0 or 1-0 has been good in 5 of the last 8 encounters between these two.
Bastia vs Metz: Prediction
Metz will be the fresher of the two and the teams have the same type of consistency where they seem to be free falling. Both clubs will be aware of this but at the same time with a lack of quality on the field the clubs will be happy to settle for a point. This should be our main bet for this fixture at medium stakes.
