Metz vs St. Etienne – Ligue 1: In one of the encounters that will open up this Tuesday of matches, counting towards Ligue 1’s 21st round
The local side Metz and the visiting side St. Etienne will face off in Metz, at the Municipal Saint-Symphorien Stadium,
on a match between two teams that have already met this season, with that meeting ending with a 3-1 win at home for St. Etienne.
The home side is in last place of the league table, with only 12 points conquered, while the visiting side is in 14th place with 23 points in 20 rounds.
The home side is making a campaign well below what they would certainly like, being in last place of the competition and having little ability, so far, to turn things around which,
on an extreme scenario, will lead to relegation for the team from Metz, even because they already have a considerable disadvantage to the teams outside the relegation zone, considering that we’re past the half-way point of the season, being almost 10 points behind.
The team, still, is coming off a good moment of form, with 3 wins on their last 4 matches.
As for the visiting side, they are clearly making the worst campaign of the last few seasons, being very far from the top spots of the league table and only fighting to avoid relegation for the rest of the season,
because of how poor their results have been, with the managerial change not having any impact. The team is still coming off a more positive streak of results, having 2 wins on their last 2 matches.
Metz vs St. Etienne – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Between two teams that have 2 of the worst defensive records of the competition (they aren’t very far from averaging 2 goals conceded per match), but that are also poor offensively, this is a tough match to predict.
In my opinion, this can result on a win for the home side, given their excellent moment of form, but I also believe this match will have goals.
