Nice vs Metz
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 21st February 2021
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Allianz Riveira.
Nice are in poor form coming into this game and have lost 4 of their last five games and are now only seven points from the bottom three.
The feeling is that the club will be safe this season but at the same time there is certainly some anxiety around the club. Last weekend Nice lost against Marseille 3-2.
This was a good game and Nice were losing 2-0 and fought back but it simply wasn’t enough in the end and that was Nice’s 12th loss of the season. At home Nice has lost 7 games from 12 and have been very poor though it is worth nothing that they did win their last game here against Angers and that finished 3-0.
Metz are in 8th with 35 points but they have no wins in their last 3 games and that includes losing their last 2 in a row these defeats came against Strasbourg and Saint Etienne respectively.
On the road Metz have 4 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses so there has been no real consistency for the club which sums up their season so far.
Nice vs Metz: Head to Head
- The last time the clubs met here Nice won 4-1.
- Earlier in the season the teams drew 1-1.
- The last 4 league meetings in a row has seen both teams to score.
- Metz have no wins at Nice in the league in over 10 years and last won here in the cup in 2014.
Nice vs Metz: Prediction
Metz have been the better side this season by a long way but both clubs come into this game with no good direction. Both need some confidence.
We will be backing Nice to win this game and it could be much closer than last time the teams played here. Nice are in poor form but that won’t last and they have the players to try and finish in mid table.
Nice looked good against Marseille for most of the game and they have a solid record at home to Metz.
