Strasbourg vs Metz
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 13th December 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg).
Strasbourg have been poor this season but maybe they have finally received a huge confidence boost as last weekend they went to Nantes and beat them 4-0.
The club are still 17th but that win marked two games in a row where they have gone unbeaten and they may fancy their chances at home to Metz. A win could put Strasbourg in 15th place and at home they drew their last game against Rennes a quality side this season 1-1. The only problem is that the club have lost 4 of their six games at home so far this season.
Metz have changed coach but it doesn’t look like it is changing the clubs form and they come into this encounter with no wins in their last four games.
Metz are six points clear of their hosts and last weekend they lost 3-1 at home to Lyon. They have picked up just 5 points from their last 15 and away from home they have gone their last 4 unbeaten which is good but 3 of those matches have finished as draws.
Strasbourg vs Metz: Head to Head
When the teams last met here in 2019 the match finished 1-1.
Metz have not won here in the league since 2008.
5 of the last seven meetings has ended in under 2.5 goals.
Strasbourg vs Metz: Prediction
Strasbourg were full of goals last weekend but we think this is a match where the coach needs to approach with some caution because 3 points look very realistic.
Strasbourg have been in good form and they can take that to the next level and try to win this game. Metz arrive here in bad shape though they seem to play better away from home recently but they have a poor record coming to this ground.
Ludovic Ajorque has been in decent form for the home side and along with picking a home win we will pick him at good odds to score in the 90 minutes.
Strasbourg vs Metz Bet Tips:
- Strasbourg to beat Metz at 2.00 (1/1)
- Anytime goalscorer: Ludovic Ajorque of Strasbourg at 2.75 (7/4).
