Metz Nice betting prediction


Preview
Metz and Nice face at Stade Saint‑Symphorien, in a match for the 23th round of the Ligue 1. In the last league head‑to‑head, played in 02‑12‑2017, Nice got a home win by (3‑1). The recent head‑to‑head record favours the away team, since they have a record of 3 wins and 3 draws in the last 6 matches. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, since Nice presents significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Metz

After 4 wins, 3 draws and 15 losses, the home team is in the 20th position, havinf won 15 points so far. In the last match, they have lost in an away match against Monaco by (3‑1), after in the previous match they have won (3‑0) at home, against Saint‑Étienne. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 21 conceded; against 4 wins, 2 draws and 9 losses at their stadium, with 15 goals scored and 26 conceded. In their last match, for the Coupe de France, they got an away win against Tours by (1‑2), after a penalty shootout. In the last 10 home league matches Metz has a record of 2 wins, 1 draw and 7 losses, so they have won 7 points out of 30 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 22 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 15 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Metz has been making a disastrous campaign in this edition of the French Championship, but came to outline a reaction, getting four rounds without losing, when it added three victories. However, the team was defeated again in the last round, thus keeping its situation very complicated. At the time, the team had a terrible offensive performance, with only three finalizations, and could not stop Monaco's attack, which scored three times. The numbers of the competition reveal that the team is not in this situation for nothing, since it has the second most leaked defense, and also the second worst attack, having not scored goals in ten matches. Playing in its domains, the team has the worst campaign, having won just over 20% of the points played. The coach has often changed the tactical configuration of the team, and in that duel will not count on goalkeeper Kawashima, who is suspended.

Confirmed Lineup: E. Kawashima, J. Rivierez, J. Palmieri, F. Diagne, M. Niakhate, G. Mandjeck, F. Mollet, R. Cohade, D. Miličević, E. Rivière, N. Roux.

Analysis of Nice

The away team is currently in the 6th position of the league, with 34 points won, after 10 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against Monaco, by (2‑2). In the last match, they won in a home match against Saint‑Étienne, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 15 goals scored and 21 conceded; against 8 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses at their stadium, with 24 goals scored and 22 conceded. In the last 10 away league matches Nice has a record of 3 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 12 points out of 30 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 5 away matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 22 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 11 times and have only turned the score around in 2.

Nice has a chance to reach its ninth straight game without losing for the French Championship, but tries to repeat the good performance it has been having at home, where it has won the last four matches. In the last round, the team played a balanced game against Saint Étienne, but had better defensive performance and more consistency in the midfield, thus ensuring three more points in its dominions. Although its last three victories have taken place for the minimum score, the team still has the sixth best attack of the competition. In addition, the team stands out for the quality in the exchange of passes, which allows to have the second best average of possession of ball. Many different tactical formations have been used by the coach, who will probably keep Lees-Melou as a reference in midfield.

Confirmed Lineup: W. Benítez, P. Burner, R. Coly, Dante, M. Sarr, N. Mendy, P. Lees Melou, J. Seri, B. Srarfi, M. Balotelli, A. Plea.

Betting suggestion:

This clash marks the meeting between two teams that have been doing very different campaigns within the French Championship. While Metz is the last placed of the competition, with five points less than the penultimate placed, Nice appears in the top six. The home team bets heavily on kicks from outside the area, but has been inaccurate in the end, while its defense fails in many aspects, especially in fighting more skillful players. While Nice stands out in set pieces, its defense fails, especially in containing counterattacks, and has also made many individual mistakes. However, by its offensive superiority, Nice seems able to win this confrontation, but as it plays away from home, the draw is also a good betting option. This betting suggestion has expired...
