Metz vs Rennes
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 4th March, 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK Time
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien, Metz.
Metz are one place above the relegation zone and it’s not an overstatement to say that three points would be welcomed here. The team are winless in their last 3 matches where they have conceded 11 goals in those games. However 10 of those goals did come against Lyon and Monaco and the club will feel playing Rennes at home will suit them more to their style of play and the qualities they possess on the pitch.
If Metz do stay up it could be their home form that allows them to do so. They are unbeaten at home in their last five matches and have won 11 of their last 15 points at home.
Rennes has lost just 1 game in their past five matches, though three of those have been draws. The team continues to impress at home but disappoint on the road where they have won just 1 game all season. They have also scored just 7 goals and from a possible total haul of 39 points they have won just 8.

Metz vs Rennes: Prediction
We’re going to side with history but also will have to take a leap of faith and go with Rennes. The leap of faith is because we are backing Rennes to win just their second game of the season away from home. It’s best to go in with minimum stakes on this one, but the value is pretty decent.
