France Ligue 1
(03 Mar 2018)
Metz – Toulouse
Metz welcomes Toulouse in a match of the 28th round of the French Ligue 1.
Metz: The hosts are sitting at the bottom of the table, with 19 points won, after 5 wins, 4 draws and 18 losses. After three straight losses in this competition, anxious Metz finally stopped the slide with a draw (2-2) at Guingamp last Saturday. However, they have won three of their last four home matches and scored at least two goals in these last three home wins. This season they were extremely bad at defending against through ball attacks and counter-attacks.
Toulouse: The away team is currently taking the 16th position in the league. So far, they have won 28 points after 7 wins, 7 draws and 13 losses. Currently, on a bad run of three straight games without a win in the Ligue 1, Toulouse comes into this game after a good draw (3-3) at home against great Monaco. However, they have failed to win 26 of their last 29 away matches.
Conclusion: Relegation-threatened hosts meet the opponent in a game for the survival in the top-flight. Furthermore, Metz has seen 2 or fewer goals in their last 3 matches against Toulouse in all competitions. The visitors do, however, have the better record at Metz in recent history, losing only one of their last 11 encounters. Now, if we take into account teams’ form and performance we can predict a tight game, with few goals as a result.
