France Ligue 1
(18 Mar 2018)
Metz – Nantes
Metz welcomes Nantes in a match of the 30th round of the French Ligue 1.
Metz: The home team is in relegation danger taking the 20th position of the table, with 20 points won, after 5 wins, 5 draws and 19 losses. After two straight draws in the league, Metz was unsurprisingly trounced (5-0) at the Parc des Princes by PSG last Saturday. Currently winless in their last six Ligue 1 games, Frederic Hantz’s men still sit bottom of the league, eight points adrift of safety.
Nantes: The away team is currently in the 6th position in the league, with 43 points won, after 12 wins, 7 draws and 10 losses. Nantes ended their bad run of five straight games without a win with a 1-0 win against relegation-threatened Troyes at home. Thanks to this win, Claudio Ranieri’s side have jumped to fifth place in the Ligue 1 standings, 11 points behind fourth-placed Lyon.
Conclusion: Metz has scored in each of their last ten home Ligue 1 clashes against Nantes. Still, with 24 goals conceded in 14 home matches so far, Metz has the worst home defence in the League. On the other side, Nantes is unbeaten in 14 of their last 15 fixtures against Metz in all competitions. However, as both attacks have not been showing much ease in the last matches, it is more likely to see few goals today.
