Angers vs Metz Prediction & Betting tips
After six rounds of play, Angers and Metz are both at the top of the right-hand row of the rankings. Will either team be able to take the step to the left row this weekend?
In the last round of the international break, Angers was not for the first time in recent history cannon fodder for reigning champion Paris Saint-Germain. On a visit to the Parc des Princes, after a 2-0 deficit at halftime, les Scoestes were eventually lost 6-1. For the time being, that is the biggest defeat of the season and if Angers does not play better football, such a defeat could happen again.
In home games, Angers is certainly not performing badly this season with two victories and one defeat, but in away games, les Scoestes are still a lot weaker for the day. Only at the bottom of the league Dijon was won 1-0, followed by a 4-1 defeat against Montpellier and the aforementioned monster defeat against PSG. Yet it is not all doom and gloom at Les Scoestes, as captain and defender Ismaël Traoré scores more than sufficient with three goals in the first six rounds of play.
With seven points from six rounds of play, Metz, the number fifteen of the previous season, has not started the new season too well. Especially in the first rounds of play it was doom and gloom at les Grenats with three defeats in a row, but with a draw against Olympique Marseille and victories at Stade de Reims and Lorient in the last three rounds of play, Vincent Hognon’s team is now working on a fine series.
Last season, les Grenats’ game revolved around striker Habibou Diallo, but this season the Senegalese striker barely appears in his trainer’s plans. Diallo has lost his place in the pecking order to Ibriahima Niané, who for the time being more than lives up to Hognong’s confidence with six hits in the first six rounds of play. However, his team will have to do without him in the coming months, as Niané suffered a serious knee injury on Thursday, which means that he does not seem to be able to take action this calendar year.
