Toulouse vs Metz
Date: 18th November 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Stadium Municipal (Toulouse).
Toulouse took only a single point in last two league outings, but they’ll have a fantastic opportunity to return on the winning ways this weekend when they host the rock-bottomed Metz at Stadium Municipal.
The momentum swung back and forth for Pascal Dupraz and his men so far in the season.
It is fair to say the team has been more or less constant at home where Les Pitchouns won four, drew one and lost one of six matches in all competitions.
The lone draw came three weeks ago when Toulouse could not break the deadlock against Saint-Etienne just four days after they bagged four past Ligue 2 outfit Clermont in Coupe de la Ligue.
Les Grenats remained the genuine candidates for the drop after losing important six-pointers to both Dijon and Lille in last two home outings.
The visitors have thus lost 11 of their opening 12 fixtures in the season and they’ve scored no more than two goals in last six league outings.
The change on the bench did not reflect a positive shock as the team looked even more miserable on Frederic Hantz’s debut two weeks ago against Lille (0-3 loss at Stade Saint-Symphorien).
Toulouse vs Metz: Head to head
Toulouse lead the head to head tie by four wins, but none of last two meetings between the two likes saw a winner.
Each of last four encounters saw both teams on the scoreline, including the 1-1 draw in Metz back in mid-may this year.
Toulouse vs Metz: Prediction
We can’t see how Hantz could have likely turned things around for Metz during the international break and we just have to back the hosts to claim a three-pointer here at the 1.66 odds.
Toulouse vs Metz: Bet Tips
