Nantes vs Metz
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 15th February 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade La Beaujoire (Nantes)
Nantes are in 12th place after going their last 4 games without a win. They drew 3-3 at Dijon last weekend and even though it wasn’t an ideal result the good news was that the game ended a 3 match losing streak, maybe they are about to improve.
All is not lost for Nantes and it would only take 2-3 wins in a row to have them back into the mix for a European spot. At home the club have won 50% of their games but they have also lost 5 this season which is just too much from 12 matches. Their last match at home ended in a 2-1 defeat against PSG.
Metz had been brilliant but they have gone their last two games without a win losing at the weekend at home to Bordeaux. The club are in 16th and are only 3 points from the bottom three so certainly not out of the wood. Away from home their record is not good with just 2 wins this season and just one win in their last five games. They have drawn almost 50% of their games on the road.
Nantes vs Metz: Head to Head
Last season Nantes won this game 1-0.
In 2016 Metz beat Nantes away from home but it is there only win in Nantes in 15 years.
The last 4 meetings has seen under 2.5 goals.
Nantes vs Metz: Prediction
On paper Metz have the team to win this game, but we feel this will be a typical Nantes game, where they are not in good form but beat the team that really need to win.
The pressure is more on Metz to win this one, and Nantes at least at home should have enough quality to see Metz off.
We will go against recent form regarding goals as we think if Metz lose they will go down with a battle and Nantes did score 3 goals at the weekend so they have some in them again.
