Nantes vs Metz
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 22nd November 2020
Kick off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade Beaujoire (Nantes).
Nantes come into this game in 14th and whilst their form has picked up before the international break they remain an inconsistent team. The club have lost 3 of their last 5 games but have won 2 of their last three.
Nantes last game ended in victory though when they overcame Lorient away from home to win 2-0 and the club are 3 points from the bottom. They could move up a couple of places depending on other results this weekend.
Nantes would have remained unbeaten at home this season however in their last game at home they lost 3-0 to PSG. A defeat like this may have been expected and the fans will be demanding that the club can get back to winning ways.
Metz are in 10th place and are four points ahead of Nantes. With a win they could enter into the top 7 and their recent form is very good with no defeats in their last 5 games. Their last game before the break ended in a 1-1 draw v Dijon and away from home they have gone their last 3 games unbeaten after a terrible start.

Nantes vs Metz: Prediction
There is not much between the two teams and we don’t expect to see a very entertaining game, this could be one that ultimately has very few chances.
Nantes have been fairly strong at home though but Metz are the team with the better form, so this could be interesting. Despite this we feel that Nantes have the qualities to pull off a very narrow win.
We must remember that Metz have a poor record at this ground. For smaller stakes we will back the under goals market.
Nantes vs Metz Bet Tips:
