Metz vs Troyes Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Troyes will look to return to winning ways in Ligue 1 when they travel to the Stade Saint-Symphorien to take on Metz on Saturday evening. Metz come into this tie high on confidence following their 0-1 victory at Angers last time out thanks to a second-half winner from Nolan Roux. On the contrary, Troyes lost 0-1 at home at the hands of Montpellier in a game in which they failed to deliver a single shot on target. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips - Match Odds

Metz have only won once in six league games so far this season, but it has to be said that they have faced strong opponents in the shape of Bordeaux, Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain during this run. They looked decent last weekend against Angers and I’m expecting them to build on that victory. Furthermore, Metz have won their most recent two meetings with Troyes, conceding none in the process. In conclusion, Metz to win look good value at odds 23/20 with Bet365.

Metz v Troyes - Correct score betting tips and odds

Both teams looked short in front of goal throughout this early part of the campaign, and I think that Metz to win 1-0 in this one is a solid bet. Metz beat Troyes 1-0 in their most recent two games and they come into this tie on the back of a 0-1 victory on the road at Angers last time out in Ligue 1. Our correct score prediction is:

Metz to win 1-0 at odds 6/1 with Bet365

Metz v Troyes - Total Goals predictions and odds

These two sides have endured a disappointing run of form in this early part of the campaign and this is mainly because their goalscoring form. These two teams have only bagged seven goals between them and their recent goalscoring form has been terrible. Metz have only scored two goals in their last four Ligue 1 games, while Troyes have netted just one goal in their last five games across all competitions. This having been said, our total goals prediction for this clash is:

Under 2.5 goals at odds 4/5 with Bet365

Metz saw over 1.5 goals in 10 out of their last 10 games played

Troyes saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Metz Preview

Metz had a terrible start to the new Ligue 1 campaign, having suffered defeats in each of the opening five league games. However, they enter the fray on buoyant mood as they managed to secure their first victory of the season last weekend, beating Angers 0-1 away from home. Despite the win, Metz still find themselves at the bottom of the table with three points under their belts after six rounds, two points behind safety. Metz finished on a comfortable 14th position in the standings last season, with seven points clear of the bottom three, but this seems to be a difficult task this season following their disappointing performance in this early part of the campaign. Metz have been terrible at both ends of the field throughout the season, scoring just three goals while conceding twelve in the opening six games. The summer signing Nolan Roux has been Metz’s most dangerous player in front of goal so far this season, scoring two goals in his six league appearances. The most worrying fact is that Metz have only won once in their last eleven home fixtures across all competitions, while they are currently on a six-game winless run, including a 1-5 loss at the hands of Paris Saint Germain in their most recent home league fixture.

Metz Team News

Philipp Wollscheid, Ibrahima Niane and Emmanuel Riviere are all doubts, but Benoit Assou-Ekotto is out through suspension.

Troyes Preview

Troyes did well to collect four points from their opening two league games, but their recent form has let them down. The newcomers head into this clash on the back of a four-game winless streak in Ligue 1, including a narrow 0-1 home loss at the hands of Montpellier last time out. Scoring goals has been Troyes’ biggest problem of late, as they have failed to find the back of the net in three of their last four league games. Overall, Troyes have only scored four goals in six rounds so far this season, which is one of the worst attacking records in the division. Adama Niane has been the standout player for Troyes in this early part of the season, helping the team with one goal and two assists in his six league appearances. The good news is that Troyes looked a bit better on the road over the past few months, losing just once in their last six away games across all competitions. Actually, they were unbeaten in five away games prior to their 2-1 defeat on the road at Bordeaux in their most recent league trip. Head-to-head, Troyes have only won once in their last five meetings with Metz across all competitions, and have suffered successive defeats both home and away in the 2013/14 season.

Benjamin Nivet is out through a foot injury, while Oswaldo Vizcarrondo is missing through suspension.
