Metz Preview – Can the Maroons cause an upset on Sunday?

Frederic Antonetti’s Metz have had a tough Ligue 1 season up until now. The Maroons have picked up just four wins from their opening 21 matches, drawing seven and losing ten of the other 17. They are in 16th position on 19 points.

Metz did pick up a massive three points last time out to alleviate some of the growing pressure. Ibrahima Niane’s 61st-minute goal gave the Maroons a precious 1-0 victory at Reims. They also thumped Lorient 4-1 in their last but one home game.

Our betting prediction:
Nice to be winning at half time & full time
