Marseille vs Metz – Ligue 1: Marseille’s team has been making an interesting campaign
But it is important to mention that the investment made for the current season was also high and they were even expected do a little bit more, despite PSG’ excellent campaign, with the Parisians fighting for the title practically by themselves.
Marseelle is on the fight for 2nd place along with Monaco and Lyon and they know that they have to win in this round, since their other 2 direct contenders will play each other.
Marseille was coming off a good streak of consecutive wins and they were playing good football. However, on the last round, they were unable to win and couldn’t get more than a 2-2 draw on the reception to Monaco, on a match that was very close until the end.
Metz is the weakest team of this league and that’s the reason why they are in last place of Ligue 1.
Metz is a team that got off to a bad start in the league, losing several matches, and although they have been reacting a little bit on their last few matches, the truth is that they are still somewhat behind the safe positions of the league table (outside the relegation zone), although there are still a lot of rounds left.
On their last 5 matches, they’ve won 3 of them, but all those wins were at home. Away from home, they have struggled a bit more and on this round they faced a very tough team like Marseille, on a stadium where not even PSG was able to win, for example.
Metz is 7 points behind the first team outside the relegation zone and 6 points away from the relegation play-off’s spot, so it would be important for them to get at least 1 point in Marseille.
Marseille vs Metz – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Marseille will open up this round with Metz and they are aware of how important it is to win at home, in order to put some pressure on Monaco and Lyon that will play each other afterwards. Marseille can recover their 2nd place in this round so only the victory matters here.
They will face a team that has been fighting to stay in Ligue 1, but that have struggled in their matches, be it on organizing their play and the way they approach the attack or be it on defending with criteria.
They are motivated, yes, especially after having won 2-1 at home on the last match against Nice.
Marseille is well aware of the difficulties they might face, especially on an initial stage, where they will have a Metz’s defence with a lot of players, but that’s nothing that a goal won’t solve. That goal should simplify things for Marseille, who should win in this match.
