Metz vs Clermont Match Preview and Prediction

Metz vs. ClermontMetz are confident after a 2-0 win over Nantes last weekend. Marseille humiliated Clermont at home 1-5 seven days ago. Three consecutive matches between these rivals did not provide three or more goals.

Metz played their best of the year in a thrilling 2-0 road win over Nantes on Sunday. Seven days ago, Les Grenats oversaw all activities at Stade de la Beaujoire—Louis Fonteneau. Since his goal and assist helped Metz win, Georges Mikautadze was the hero.

Metz’s victory over Nantes marked their first triumph in the previous twelve games across all competitions. It lifted Laszlo Boloni’s team out of the bottom spot in the Ligue 1 rankings. Les Grenats are now four points behind Le Havre in the safe zone and just three points behind Montpellier.

On Sunday, Metz will have a great chance to support such an amazing performance. At Stade Saint-Symphorien, they host the bottom-dwelling Clermont on Matchday No. 25. Alone at the very bottom of the league table is Clermont. After a difficult 1-5 home loss to Marseille in the previous round, they are now three points behind Metz.

Metz vs Clermont: Betting Analysis

Both teams played in the Coupe de France last 64 at the start of the year. After a 1-1 draw, Clermont advanced on penalties. Metz won the Ligue 1 reverse encounter on the road 1-0 last August. The last three matches between these rivals did not include three or more goals.

Clermont had lost four and drawn three of its previous seven matches. They play hot and cold lately. Pascal Gastien’s team held Brest and Nice to low-scoring draws last month but lost crushingly to Lille (0-4), Rennes (1-3), and Marseille (1-5) in recent league matches.

Their visage on Sunday at Stade Saint-Symphorien is unknown. We know Metz played their finest game of the season seven days ago. The win at Nantes gives them hope of avoiding relegation. Les Grenats should win with fan support against the division’s poorest team. Home-win picks pay 2.25 odds.

Failure is intolerable for both teams. Tension will mount in this encounter due to the stakes of top-flight survival. These conditions don’t guarantee great football and chances for both teams. The two weakest Ligue 1 attacking lines will play. Finally, none of these rivals’ three H2H matches featured three or more goals. Back Under 2.5 goals, FT odds 1.70.
