By Marius Hrebenciuc

Metz will be looking for their first victory of the new Ligue 1 campaign when they travel to the Stade Michel d’Ornano to take on Caen on Saturday evening.

Caen Preview

Caen have finally registered their first victory of the new season last weekend as they managed to beat Lille 0-2 at home. Prior to this result, Caen suffered back-to-back 1-0 defeats at the hands of Montpellier and Saint-Etienne. Actually, they were on a four-game losing streak across all competitions prior to their 0-2 win over Lille. They only sit 12th in the Ligue 1 table at the moment, but they are hot favourites to collect another three points from this clash against Metz. The bad news is that Caen have endured a terrible run of form on home soil over the past six months, losing eleven of their last 15 home fixtures across all competitions. They only positive thing is that Caen are undefeated in the last two home meetings with Caen in Ligue 1, conceding none in the process. Conceding has been Caen’s main issue last term as they allowed 65 goals in 38 rounds, but they looked a bit better at the back in this early part of the season, having conceded just two in three games. At the other end of the pitch, Ivan Santini has finally found the back of the net last weekend and he will be the player to watch here after he managed to score 15 goals last season.

Caen Team News

Herve Bazile and Vincent Bessat are both doubts, but Baissama Sankoh and Jeff Louis are both missing through injury. The good news is that Nicolas Seube, Jordan N’Kololo and Florian Le Joncour are all back in training.

Metz Preview

On the contrary, Metz extended their winless streak across all competitions to five games last weekend, as they narrowly lost 0-1 at home at the hands of the reigning champions Monaco. Metz have suffered defeats in each of their opening three league games this season, scoring just once in the process. Along with the newcomers Amiens, Metz are the only team to have lost all of their three games of the new season. Scoring has definitely been their main issue this season and that’s because their last season’s topscorers Cheick Diabate and Mevlut Erdinc have both left the club this summer. Metz’s away form over the past seven months has seen them win just once in their last twelve away games across all competitions. The bad news is that Metz have failed to score in eight of their last 15 away games across all competitions. Furthermore, Metz have picked up just one victory in their last four visits to the Stade Michel d’Ornano and have only scored two goals in the process. The summer signing Nolan Roux has scored Metz’s sole goal of the season, although he has only netted four goals for his former club St. Etienne last term.

Metz Team News

Milan Bisevac, Opa Nguette and Vincent Thill are all doubts ahead of this trip.
