Sitting second from the bottom, Metz are currently fighting relegation to Ligue 2. They will be hosting Angers at Stade Municipal Saint-Symphorien, this Saturday.
Angers are at the 14th spot on the standing with 38 points from 36 games. They won 9 times in the league while drew on 11 and lost on 16 other occasions. The visiting side sits 7 points clear off relegation and they are safe in Ligue 1 even if they lost the remaining 2 fixtures.
The visiting side will come into the clash after a 4-1 Ligue 1 win against Girondins de Bordeaux in their previous fixture. They have been scored against in all of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 10 goals overall.
On the other hand, Metz is below at the 19th position on the table with 28 points. Of the 36 matches played, they won only 5 times while drew on 13 and having lost on 18 other occasions. Their struggles at the defensive end of the pitch has also been another key factor as they have conceded 64 goals so far. They need to win the remaining two fixtures if they need to avoid relegation.
The hosts following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 3-2 Ligue 1 victory against Lyon. It has been all too rare in recent times that FC Metz haven’t conceded. In fact, they have been scored against in all of their previous 6 matches, letting in 10 goals in the process.
