Metz vs Nimes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 7th March 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien.
Metz have gone to 15th with 31 points and are now 4 points clear of the bottom three after they beat Amiens 1-0. It was a big game for the club and gives them some breathing space, if they win this game they will go a long way to thinking that Ligue 1 football is safe for this season.
Form has not been good and the victory over Amiens was the clubs first in over a month. They have only won seven games from 27 played this season and at home they have the 3rd worst record in the league. They have lost their last two games at home with defeats against Lyon and Bordeaux.
Nimes have fallen lately and now they are in 18th place. They have lost their last 2 games although against tough opposition in Rennes and Marseille and will be looking to get back to winning ways. The question is how is the clubs confidence after falling behind, even a few months ago they did not look like they could be relegation contenders. The good news is that they are just a win from being safe again but it is very close down there.

Metz vs Nimes: Prediction
We are backing Metz to get the win, but will do so at half time for more value. The home side will have to start quick off the blocks and put Nimes under pressure, because give them the time and Nimes can get into the game. Normally Nimes do not travel well to Metz also, but many of these games have ended as draws. Nimes have only won 1 game away from home this season and have lost 4 of their last five games on the road recently.
