Metz vs Strasbourg Prediction: Sportpesa Mega Jackpot Predictions
FRANCE: LIGUE 1 – ROUND 6
Date: 24 September 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 EAT
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien (Metz)
Metz made a promising start to their Ligue 1 campaign in the first four rounds, with one win, two draws, and one loss.
This performance earned their manager, László Bölöni, a new contract extension until 2025.
Bölöni quickly justified this show of faith with a 1-0 victory against Lens after the international break.
Their total of eight points already surpasses their previous top-flight campaign in 2021/22, which ended in relegation. This strong start has raised hopes of a smoother survival bid this season.
Metz has been undefeated at the Stade Saint-Symphorien for over a year in all competitions, with eight wins and eight draws during this impressive run.
However, they faced setbacks in their two top-flight matches this season, dropping points from winning positions with two draws.
In their last 12 Ligue 1 home contests, Metz has secured only two wins, along with five draws and five losses. This might explain why they are considered outsiders at home against Strasbourg, who have one point less in the standings this season.
Patrick Vieira’s Strasbourg has had a relatively solid start to their league campaign with two wins, one draw, and two losses, aiming to build upon their 15th-placed finish from the previous season. Last weekend, they found themselves trailing 2-0 at half-time against Montpellier, but they managed to stage a comeback and level the game late in the contest.
However, securing an away win could prove to be a challenge for Strasbourg, as they have managed only two victories in their last 12 away trips, with three draws and seven losses.
This run began and ended with defeats without scoring, and they conceded five goals in their away league matches this season.
The short trip for the “Derby de L’Est” against Metz might be the remedy for their travel woes, as they aim for a third consecutive away head-to-head victory in this fixture, a feat they haven’t accomplished since the first-ever head-to-head encounter in 1935/36.
