France Ligue 2
Date: Friday 19th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien (Metz).
Ligue 2 leaders Metz will look to continue their good form from the beginning of the season when they take on Niort.
Metz have been brilliant so far with 8 wins from their first 10 games but it hasn’t been all plain sailing for the side who stumbled late in September with back to back losses but recovered before the international break to beat Sochaux 2-1.
At home Metz have 3 wins from 4 games but did lose their last match here in what was a shock 1-0 defeat against Le Havre.
Niort themselves have improved after last season and come into this game in 5th place. They won their last match before the break by beating Paris FC 1-0 and have 50% of their games so far. Away from home has been more of a struggle and they have just 1 win from their last 4 matches.

Metz vs Niort: Prediction
Metz are the odds on favourites to win this game and we think they should do so but the score could be a close one. The club have bounced back from some defeats and there are many teams still chasing them and could take first position from them so it is important that they win their home games.
We will back the home win but also at decent odds back Niort to score in this game. They have been quite solid so far and are not afraid to attack.
