Nice vs Metz
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 7th December 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Allianz Riviera.
Nice lost 4-1 in midweek against Saint Etienne and that would have felt like a hammer blow to the club. Their form has not been good and has been very inconsistent as they try to replicate some of the good form they had last season.
It is incredible to think that they are in 14th place with 20 points and are just 5 points behind 4th place. It means that despite some odd form there is time for the club to recover. Nice have gone their last 3 games at home unbeaten and have won 50% of their games in front of their own fans.
Metz are in 18th place and in the relegation zone and lost against Rennes at home. They have no wins in over a month and have picked up just 4 points from their last 15 available. They have won just 1 game away from home all season which was against Saint Etienne in a surprise result and have lost 50% of their games on the road. They have scored just 3 goals all season away from home which is not a good sign.

- In 15 years, Metz has no away league wins at Nice.
Nice vs Metz: Prediction
We don’t feel Metz has much of a chance in this game and whilst Nice have been edgy. Patrick Vieira has been adamant that the club’s season will change and get better.
The irony is that Nice are only 2 wins away from being a major threat for 4th and 3rd positions, but they need to find that consistency, perhaps it can start at home at the weekend.
We expect a one-sided game mostly and Nice can score a few goals, a single goal in this type of game simply will not be good enough. In fact, Nice to get at least 2 goals in this game is our main pick of the weekend.
