Metz vs Rennes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 4th December 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien.
Metz keep failing to impress with a lack of wins and goals and their games have not been entertaining. There is a real chance the club could go down to Ligue 2 this season and they come into this game in 17th place.
The club has drawn their last 4 games in a row and have already conceded 20 goals. Their home record is decent for their position and they are unbeaten in their last 4 games, again 3 of those matches ended in draws. Their last match here was against Reims which finished 1-1.
Rennes are 11th and have won 3 of their last four games. They beat Saint Etienne 2-1. Rennes have the 7th best away form in the league but their recent away form is very poor where they have lost 3 of their last four games and have gained just 2 points from their last possible 15.
A win would see Rennes go into the top 10 so this will be their main motivation coming into this game.
Metz vs Rennes: Head to Head
The last time they met at this stadium was in 2017 when the game finished 1-1.
In the last 3 meetings both teams have scored.
There is an 80% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Rennes have not won at Metz since 2006.
Metz vs Rennes: Prediction
This should be a very close game even though Rennes are in the better position. The club do not evidently travel well and this could affect them here.
Our choice is to see a very timid game with few chances and that is why we will back the draw at half time and we will also take a risk and back under 1.5 goals.
Metz do not have many goals in them and it wouldn’t be a surprise to either see a 0-0 or a 1-0 victory for either side. Either way it is worth a small stake.
It will be freezing in Metz on Wednesday evening so we do not expect a big crowd and that the atmosphere like this game could well be flat.
Metz vs Rennes: Bet Tips:
Draw at half time at 1.91 (10/11)
Under 1.5 goals at 2.50 (6/4).
