Metz Preview

Metz managed some impressive results in the pre-season, as they beat Eupen 2-0 and drew 1-1 with Standard Liege and Crystal Palace. Metz have secured their Ligue 1 status with seven games to go last year as they finished in 14th standings with seven points clear of the bottom three. Their recent home form has seen Metz win just once in their last eight games across all competitions, but they were decent in front of their own fans last term. They collected 28 points at home last season, losing just five of their 19 home league fixtures. The bad news is that Metz are winless in their last three home meetings with Guingamp across all competitions, conceding at least two goals in each of these. Head-to-head, Metz are winless in their last three meetings with Guingamp in Ligue 1, scoring just twice in this term. Metz did a great job to sell Ismaila Sarr for €17m to Rennes, which is great for the minnows’ budget, but they now have a weaker squad than last season. Regarding arrivals, Metz brought St. Etienne’s former striker Nolan Roux for an undisclosed fee, while Geronimo Poblete and Quentin Beunardeau both came on free transfers.

Metz Team News

Franck Signorino is the only doubtful player for Metz ahead of this clash.

Guingamp Preview

On the other hand, Guingamp have endured a poor pre-season campaign, losing three of their five friendlies. They head into this tie on the back of two consecutive defeats at the hands of Bordeaux and Torino, scoring none in the process. Guingamp managed to keep their best players at the club throughout the summer and also brought Abdoul Camara from Derby, Lebogang Phiri from Brondby and Franck Tabanou from Swansea, all on free transfers. Guingamp finished in a respectable 10th spot in the standings last season and they should have no problems in securing their Ligue 1 status this term. Guingamp aren’t regarded as good travellers as they have only won four of their last 20 away games across all competitions and are currently on six-game losing streak, conceding at least two goals in five of these. The good news is that Guingamp are without defeat in their last three visits to the Stade Saint-Symphorien, scoring nine goals in the process. Jimmy Briand has been Guingamp’s top scorer last term with twelve goals under his belt in 34 league appearances, and he will be looking to carry that form into this new season as well.

Guingamp Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Guingamp ahead of this tie.
