Strasbourg v Metz
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 1st April 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg)
Strasbourg has picked up just 2 points from their last 15 available and as a consequence could get dragged into the relegation battle with their current form. The club are in 15th place and just 3 points ahead of the bottom three. It’s been a nightmarish few months for the club which has saw them lose to Monaco and Caen and only achieve draws over Toulouse and Montpellier. If Strasbourg were a ship they would be sinking right now, and that is difficult to take for fans when you consider that only 2 team have beaten PSG in the league this season and one of them was Strasbourg.
Current home form for Strasbourg is poor too with just 1 win in their last 4. Overall they have won just 40% of their home fans which just hasn’t been good enough to compete at this level.
Metz are going to get relegated and are still rock bottom. They are 7 points adrift of 19th placed Lille and 9 points from safety and their fate does look sealed. In their last game they fought to get a good point against Nantes and whilst Metz has lost just 1 game in their past 4 matches the other games have all been draws.
Strasbourg v Metz: Head to Head
- Metz won this reverse fixture by 3-0
- The last 2 meetings at Strasbourg has ended in draws
- Strasbourg has not beaten Metz in their own ground since 2007
Strasbourg v Metz: Prediction
Our bet here will be to see the away side win on the handicap. Metz believe that they will be relegated now and are playing risky football but with no pressure. For the home side who are in poor form and don’t like playing Metz all of the pressure is for them. This bet for maximum stakes.
