NANTES VS METZ PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Metz will have an unlikely march to Nantes’ La Beaujoire stadium. However, the away team is still determined to get all 3 points.
Nantes’ form in the last 5 matches: L W L L D
On the opening day, Nantes had a difficult trip to AS Monaco’s Stade Louis II. It is not surprising that Nantes’ possession rate in this match is only 25%. Besides, they also launched exactly 5 shots, of which the only one hit the target. However, that was enough for Nantes to equalize 1-1 before the host AS Monaco. At the end of the match, Les Canaris left with 1 point.
It is also a good result for Nantes when they have been much inferior to the opponent. However, there is an alarming problem, which is the effectiveness of Nantes’ play in recent times. Specifically, with the last 5 matches, coach Antoine Kombouaré’s students won exactly once when playing a friendly with Brest. In contrast, Nantes drew 1 and lost 3 matches.
Metz’s form in the last 5 matches: L W W W D
Metz is still maintaining the necessary stability in terms of performance. Also counting only the last 5 matches that Metz has played, this team lost exactly once. It was a 0-1 defeat when playing a friendly against Monchengladbach. Notably, after that loss, Les Grenats had 4 consecutive unbeaten matches. Out of which they got 3 wins. The other match is the last match when Metz earned the final draw.
Playing at the home of Saint-Symphorien, Frédéric Antonetti and his students welcomed the defending champion Lille. Not as highly rated as the opponent, but Metz had a lead time of 3-1. However, with Kouyate’s red card, Metz let Lille equalize 3-3 because of a lack of players. In the case of Kouyate, he will be suspended from the match against Nantes.
