Metz vs Caen
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 21st April 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien (Metz).
Just when we thought Metz looked doomed following their 5-0 loss to Lyon they go to Rennes and win 2-1 and give themselves another chance. This victory at Rennes already a tough ground to go to was a fantastic one, and it is clear that Metz are not ready to give up yet.
Metz are 5 points from safety with 15 remaining and could still mount one of the great Ligue 1 survival comebacks but they will need a win here to be serious contenders.
The club has picked up just 5 points from their last five home games and won just 3 times this season in front of their home fans, so this will be a big ask but the club proved last week that they still want to try and fight.
Caen were heartbroken in midweek as they lost in the Coupe de France to PSG in the semi-final. Had they made the final it would have been their first ever one.
In the league Caen have lost their last 4 games in a row and with 35 points they are almost safe but not quite. From 48 possible points away Caen has picked up just 11 and even more of a worry is that they have only scored 7 goals on their travels all season, easily the worst record in the league.
Metz vs Caen: Head to Head
- In the last 5 competitive games Metz has no victories over Caen

Metz vs Caen: Prediction
Metz hold all the keys, will they use it wisely and unlock a victory? We think so. Metz have confidence, have a huge reason for the win and have had a weeks rest unlike Caen.
