Metz vs Montpellier
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 2nd November 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien (Metz).
Metz are in 19th place and although there is plenty of time for them to escape the bottom three the signs do not look good.
Last weekend they lost 2-0 to Lyon which was expected but the week before they beat an inform Nantes side and that ended up being a false dawn for the club to try and recover. They have lost 6 games from the 11 matches they have played already. At home the club have earned 7 points from 15, losing two games from the five played.
Montpellier come into this game in 10th place and a win could shoot the club into the top 6 depending on results. Form is not good though and they have won just 1 game from their past four.
Last weekend the club drew 0-0 at home to Angers and they haven’t scored a goal in two games now. Away they have one of the worst records in the league and have yet to record a victory on the road. They have won only 2 points from a possible 15, their last away game ended in a 1-0 loss against Reims.
Metz vs Montpellier: Head to Head
- The last time the teams met here Montpellier won 1-0.
- Metz have won 3 of the last 4 meetings.
- There is a 60% chance to see both teams to score.
Metz vs Montpellier: Prediction
We will take the risk and back Montpellier to record their first away victory of the season. They have shown some promise and have a better team than Metz, and have a few wins here in the past where Metz have genuinely struggled against them.
It will sure to be a close game, but the away side will be great value to win so we don’t need to use maximum stakes here. This will be our only choice for this game, because it involves some risk backing a side who have failed to win on the road this season, but surely this will not continue for much longer.
