Metz Preview

Metz had a terrible start to the new Ligue 1 campaign, having lost each of their opening four league games. Overall, they are winless in six games across all competitions, losing four and drawing twice in the process. The most worrying fact is that Metz have failed to score a single goal in their most recent three games in Ligue 1. They are the only team without points under their belts in this early part of the season and find themselves at the bottom of the table, having scored just once in four games. The sole goal of this campaign has been scored by summer signing Nolan Roux. Metz’s recent home form has also let them down as they have only won once in their last ten home games across all competitions and are currently on a five-game winless run. In addition, Metz are winless in the last three home meetings with Paris Saint Germain in Ligue 1, conceding three goals in two of these. They are still looking for their first victory in this new campaign, but this seems to be an impossible task as Metz have suffered defeats in each of their last six meetings with Paris Saint Germain across all competitions, conceding at least two goals in each of these.

Metz Team News

Yann Jouffre is the only doubtful player for Metz ahead of this clash.

Paris Saint Germain Preview

On the contrary, Paris Saint Germain have had an impeccable start to the new domestic campaign as after beating Monaco 1-2 in the French Super Cup, PSG followed this up with four consecutive wins in their opening games of the new Ligue 1 season. Les Parisiens find themselves at the top of the Ligue 1 table tied on 12 points with the second-placed Monaco, but they have a better goal difference. PSG have scored 14 goals and conceded just two in the opening four league fixtures. Edinson Cavani is the team’s topscorer with five goals under his belt in his four league appearances, while Neymar has provided three goals and three assists. Paris Saint Germain need to pick up another victory here as they will kick off their Champions League campaign next weekend. They have been handed a pretty difficult group against the likes of Bayern Munich, Anderlecht and Celtic. PSG’s away form over the past seven months has seen them win 13 of their last 15 games across all competitions and are currently on a five-game winning run. Furthermore, PSG have picked up back-to-back wins in their most recent two visits to the Stade Saint-Symphorien, scoring three goals in each of these.

Paris Saint Germain Team News

Lucas is a doubt, but Marco Verratti is definitely out through suspension.
