Metz vs Nancy Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Metz and Nancy will be facing each other at the Stade Saint-Symphorien on Saturday night, with both sides looking to get back to winning ways in Ligue 1. Metz were thrashed 5-1 by Lorient last time out, with their consolation goal being scored by Cheick Diabate just after the half-hour mark. Meanwhile, Nancy managed to hold Marseille to a nil-nil home draw, despite the fact that the visitors had an impressive 70% ball possession and 18 goalscoring opportunities. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Both sides have struggled for consistency over the past few months, and both are fighting for survival in Ligue 1. It should be a well-contested game, and I’m expecting goals, as the previous two meetings between these two sides have seen at least four goals scored.

Metz Preview

Metz enter the fray on the back of a five-game winless streak in Ligue 1, including a ridiculous 5-1 defeat on the road at Lorient last weekend. Metz’s terrible defence has been the main reason for their struggle throughout the season as they hold the worst defensive record in the division, conceding 69 goals in 34 rounds. Actually, Metz have conceded at least two goals in each of their most recent six league outings. However, Metz are still safe for the moment as they sit in 15th spot in the standings, four points clear of the drop zone. At home, Metz were on an impressive eleven-game unbeaten streak across all competitions between the beginning of November 2016 to the end of March 2017, but their recent home form has been awful. They are currently winless in three home league fixtures, conceding at least two goals in each of these. However, Metz showed some fighting spirit in their most recent home fixture against PSG, as they managed to score two goals against the reigning champions and conceded the losing goal in the 93rd minute. The good news is that Metz are undefeated in their last six home meetings with Nancy in all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in five of these.

Nancy Preview

Nancy have also struggled for fluency over the past three months, having won just two of their last 15 games across all competitions. They head into this clash on the back of a two-game winless run in Ligue 1, but they did well to hold Marseille to a goalless home draw last time out. Nancy have been a bit better at the back than their Saturday’s opponents, but they really struggled at the other end of the field. They have only scored 25 goals in 34 league games, which is definitely the worst attacking record in the division. Issiar Dia has been Nancy’s most dangerous player in front of goal so far this season, as the 29-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with eight goals and three assists in his 28 league appearances. Their away form has also been an issue as Nancy have only collected eleven points from their 17 league trips so far this season. Nancy are currently on a six-game losing streak in Ligue 1, scoring just one goal in the process. Head-to-head, Nancy are undefeated in their last three meetings with Metz across all competitions, including a comfortable 4-0 home win in the reverse fixture.
