Metz vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 23rd November 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien (Metz).
The two teams are quite close to one another in distance and so like the Brest and Nantes game this match is seen as a bit of a derby game even if it is not official.
Metz are in 17th place and have won just 1 game in their past four. Their last match though ended in a rather respectable 0-0 draw away to Lille and in fact the club have drawn their last two games in a row.
Reims have dropped down the table after showing some promise and are in 8th place. Still they are just 3 points behind 2nd place Marseille and one feels if the club can make a charge for it who knows if European football can’t be on the horizon once again for the famous club?
Form has dipped with no wins in their last 3 for Reims and away from home Reims have the 4th best record from six games which is won 3 and lost 3. The club lost their last away game 2-0 to Nice but of course famously beat PSG a few weeks ago in Paris by 2-0.
Metz vs Reims: Head to Head
The teams have not met here since 2014 when the game finished 3-0 to Metz.
Reims have not beaten Metz in any game since 2012 and have not won at Metz in over 15 years.
There is a 60% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Metz vs Reims: Prediction
We think this will be a close game where both teams can cancel one another out. Forget league position there isn’t much between the sides and we think this game could well have 0-0 written all over it.
It is a risky choice to go for small stakes, but we will be backing the draw in this game with very few chances for either side and the correct score of 0-0. Reims might just take another point right now at a stadium where they rarely get any points.
