Metz vs Strasbourg
France- Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 14th February 2021
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien.
Metz are in seventh place and are only 3 points shy of a European position and have 35 points. They have exceeded all expectations so far but the club have also gone their last two games without a win.
This has followed a draw against Montpellier and a loss against Saint Etienne away from home. There are 4 other clubs who could soon take over Metz if they lost at the weekend and so the pressure remains on the club to do well.
Metz are unbeaten at home in the past two months which is good news but with just 15 goals scored so far at home that isn’t a lot.
Strasbourg are 10 points behind their hosts and down in 16th place. With 25 points the club will feel slightly confident to not get dragged down in the relegation battle but at the same time they are only six points clear of the bottom three.
Last weekend they lost 3-0 at Lyon which wasn’t a surprise, however the club are low on confidence and have no wins in their last four games.
Metz vs Strasbourg: Head to Head
- The last time the teams met here Metz won 1-0.
- Strasbourg have no wins at Metz since 2007.
- The teams have drawn 5 times from the last 8 meetings.
Metz vs Strasbourg: Prediction
Metz have proved to be the better team but neither one has good form coming into this game and Strasbourg will be aware that this is a difficult away fixture and could set up with five players at the back.
Because of this we think Metz will have more of the possession but if the away side can stay focused we think this is the type of game which could end up in a draw.
This is our main choice and we will also back the correct score at half time, it’s quite risky so choices should be only minimum stakes.
