Nantes vs Metz Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Nantes will be aiming to extend their unbeaten streak in Ligue 1 to six games when they welcome Metz at the Stade de la Beaujoire - Louis Fonteneau on Saturday evening. Nantes fought back from one-goal down to secure a 1-2 away victory at the newcomers Strasbourg last weekend thanks to goals from Adrien Thomasson and Leo Dubois. On the other hand, Metz suffered a dramatic 0-1 home loss at the hands of Troyes last time out in Ligue 1, with Philippe Hinschberger’s men conceding the goal in the stoppage time. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Nantes are currently on an impressive run of form at the moment in time and they should be able to extend their undefeated streak to six games here, particularly due to Metz’s terrible run of form. I’m also expecting a low-scoring affair as Nantes looked incredibly strong at the back of late, while Metz have only scored once in their three league trips so far this season.

Nantes Preview

Nantes started the new Ligue 1 season with two consecutive defeats at the hands of Lille and Marseille, but the experienced coach Claudio Ranieri did a wonderful job to steady the ship and the team now enter the fray on the back of a five-game unbeaten streak. The most impressive fact is that Nantes have only conceded once during this run of form, which is a big improvement in comparison with the first two rounds when they conceded four goals. Claudio Ranier’s men currently sit 6th in the Ligue 1 table tied on 13 points with the 5th-placed Marseille, six points adrift of the current leaders Paris Saint Germain. The only concern for Claudio Ranieri’s men should be the team’s poor goalscoring form as Nantes hold the worst attacking record in top ten with just five goals scored in seven rounds. Their last season’s topscorer Emiliano Sala is still at the team, but the 26-year-old striker has only scored once in seven league appearances so far this season. At home, Nantes were on a three-game winless streak across all competitions prior to their 1-0 victory over Caen in their most recent home league fixture. Head-to-head, Nantes are undefeated in their last nine home meetings with Metz across all competitions, keeping five clean sheets in this term.

Nantes Team News

Diego Carlos Santos Silva, Yacine Bammou, Anthony Walongwa, Kolbeinn Sightorsson, Nicolas Pallois and Samuel Moutoussamy are all doubts, but Joris Kayembe Ditu is out through injury.

Metz Preview

Meanwhile, Metz have been terrible in this early part of the new Ligue 1 campaign, winning just once in seven league games. Metz picked up a hard-fought 0-1 victory on the road at Angers a fortnight ago, but they succumbed to a narrow 0-1 home loss at the hands of Troyes last time out in Ligue 1. Metz are rock bottom of the Ligue 1 table with just three points under their belts after seven rounds. They looked terrible at both ends of the field throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, but their biggest problem have been in the final third. They hold the worst attacking record in the division with just three goals scored in seven league games. The summer signing Nolan Roux has been Metz’s most prolific player in front of goal so far this season, scoring two goals in his seven league appearances. Away from home, Metz have suffered two consecutive defeats in Ligue 1 prior to their 0-1 narrow victory at Angers in their most recent league trip. Furthermore, Metz are undefeated in their last two visits Beaujoire - Louis Fonteneau, conceding none in the process. Head-to-head, Metz are unbeaten in their last three meetings with Nantes in Ligue 1.

Metz Team News

Emmanuel Riviere and Ibrahima Niane are both doubts, but Jonathan Rivierez is back in training following his muscle injury.
