Metz vs Brest
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 29 November 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Municipal Saint-Symphorien.
The Maroons have one of the best defenses in the entire competition, and also have been one of the most consistent teams in the entire league.
Only one team has conceded fewer goals than them, and they also are one of the only three teams to stay unbeaten in the past five match-days.
They also have been an even more formidable force at home over the past several game weeks, and most importantly, they have a good h2h record against this opponent over the years.
Meanwhile, the Pirates are one of the weakest teams in the league. They have conceded the most number of goals in the French top flight, and they have been a total disaster on the road all through this season.
Likely, expect Metz to have the upper hand this weekend.
Metz vs Brest: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Frederic Antonetti’s men recorded four of the previous five overall wins.
- In fact, since 2009, they have lost just once against this opponent.
- The hosts are unbeaten at this stadium since 1990.
- The home team has kept clean sheets in six of the preceding nine clashes at this venue.
Metz vs Brest: Prediction
The Maroons were held to a 1-1 draw the last match-day on the road, by Nantes. In the meantime, Olivier Dall’Oglio’s men registered a 4-1 win at home the past game week, against St. Etienne.
Going on, the Maroons are on an unbeaten run of eight fixtures, and they had kept clean sheets in two of the former four games. In fact, their sole three losses this whole season in all competitions had come against PSG, Lille, and Monaco.
All three defeats were close ones, and had a scorecard of 1-0, and of those three – PSG and Lille are placed first and second in the table, while Monaco are the fifth-placed team in the competition.
They were also unbeaten in nine of their last ten overall match-ups, and of these seven were wins.
On the other hand, their counterparts had lost three of their former five match-ups, and they have a 100% losing record on the road in all competitions this season – barring their match-up against the dead-last placed Dijon.
Going on, Antonetti’s men also have a dominating h2h record at this venue over the past three decades.
As such, expect Metz to have the edge this Sunday at the Stade Municipal Saint-Symphorien.
