Metz vs Angers Preview and Predictions

Metz vs Angers
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 6th May 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien (Metz).

Metz have battled hard but early season form is the reason the club will be relegated to Ligue 2. The bottom side needed to get six points in their last two games against Caen and Lille and ended up with one and this was the final nail in the hammer. Still officially the club are not down yet but this should be confirmed this weekend even if they win this game.

The club are 8 points from safety with 9 points remaining and are even 6 points adrift of 19th place. They have won just 3 games at home all season although have lost just once in their last four home games but the other results were not wins but draws.

For a time it seemed that Angers could be joining Metz in Ligue 2 but the side did push on and enter this game in 14th place and six points from the bottom three. Angers are definitely safe this season so it remains to be seen how they will approach this game.

Form is poor with 3 draws and a loss and the club have not won a game since beating Caen 3-0 in mid-March. Away from home they have won just 3 games all season and have lost their last two matches.
