Metz vs Toulouse
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 28th September 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saint Symphorien (Metz)
Saturday evening will see Metz and Toulouse clash in what a very close encounter could be.
Metz come into this game in 16th place and have been very poor so far this season. They had lost 4 games in a row, but they finally notched up a win in midweek when they beat Saint Etienne 1-0.
The fact it was an away game meant the result was a total surprise, but it was 3 points that Metz would gladly take. The club return home where they have a poor record and have lost two games in a row, their last match at home ended in a 2-1 defeat to Amiens.
Toulouse are in 14th place and just 1 point ahead of their hosts. In midweek they played Angers and lost in front of their home fans by 2-0.
The club are in poor form coming into this game where they have gone 3 matches without victory. The club are yet to win away with 2 losses and two draws.
Metz vs Toulouse: Head to Head
- The last time the teams played this fixture the game ended 1-1.
- Toulouse have not won at Metz since 2008.
- The last 3 meetings have all ended in draws.
- There is a 60% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Metz vs Toulouse: Prediction
Metz should be able to take something from winning in midweek and stopping their poor run of defeats. Toulouse are quite poor on the road and history suggests that they will get nothing in this game.
We are going to back the home side to get off to a solid and positive start and that is why we will take them to be leading the game at half time. We will also back the under goals market and expect to see a game with few chances where the ball will most likely remain in the middle of the field for long periods.
Metz vs Toulouse: Bet Tips:
Half Time: Metz winning at 2.75 (7/4)
Under 2.5 goals at 1.62 (8/13).
