Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien, Metz.
Metz have the worst form in the Ligue 1 right now, where they have lost 4 straight matches and this has seen them fall to 14th place. They have had some tough fixtures but also went down hard to likes of Monaco 7-0 and Nice 4-2. The team need to try and find their feet and recover quickly.
St Etienne impressed somewhat in getting a 1-1 draw with Monaco, although they should have been winning that match last weekend. They have gone 3 matches unbeaten and lost just 1 game in their past six. Though the club has just 1 win in their last five away games, they did achieve this in their last road trip with a 2-0 win over Caen.

Metz vs St Etienne: Prediction
Metz losing run can come to an end here, but we would be too hopeful to think that they can beat St Etienne. So this game could well end up in a draw. St Etienne has been good without being spectacular and indeed both team’s seasons thus far could be summed up in this match. Nonetheless, this will be a very cagey affair as both managers’ priority will be to avoid a defeat, which has all the ingredients to end up all square and points shared.
