Marseille vs Metz Predictions & Analysis

Marseille will be heavy favorites on Sunday when they play host to penultimate-placed Metz in the first game of the day in the Ligue 1.

Jorge Sampaoli’s men are unbeaten in the last six games in all competitions, but they’ve only won two along the way.

They played back-to-back draws to Lazio in the UEFA Europa League and went on a run of two wins and draws in the last four Ligue 1 affairs.

Such spell of form keeps them at the third position in the Ligue 1 standings. Marseille are just one point shy of the second-placed Nice and they have a great chance to maintain their high rank with a victory over Metz in Gameweek No 13.

The visitors sit second from bottom in the league table and look doomed to the relegation scrap this season.

Metz have the weakest defense in French topflight. They’ve shipped 27 goals in the inaugural 12 rounds.

The visitors will travel to Orange Velodrome off the back of three defeats and a draw in the last four games.

Metz shipped as many as 15 goals in 6 away games this season. This is more than two goals per game, and we would not be surprised to see Marseille running riot here.

Key Stats for Betting

  • Marseille won three, drew two, and lost just one of six home matches this season.
  • Three of five matches they’ve played at home saw three or more goals scored.
  • Metz have the worst defense in the league with 27 goals conceded in 12 games.
  • They shipped 15 goals in 6 away matches this season.
