Marseille vs Metz Prediction & Betting tips
The twenty-fourth round of Ligue 1 is kicked off by Olympique Marseille and Metz. If the Marseillesans do not lose, they take the second place for a while, while Metz remains in the last spot even with a victory.
As the two competitors for the second place, Olympique Lyon and AS Monaco, meet each other this weekend, Olympique Marseille can be the big winner of this weekend, but then there has to be won from fielder Metz. Given that the Marseilles riders were able to turn six out of their previous seven league games into a win and only lost their points in three home games this season, they are the big favorite for this game. With thirteen points from the last five matches, Rudi García’s team is currently performing better than PSG.
Last weekend, points were lost at home against AS Monaco. In an intense match in which L’OM was the parent, a 0-1 deficit was reversed to a 2-1 lead, then the 2-2 had to cash. Despite frequent insistence from Valère Germain, former player of the Monegasks, García’s squad did not manage to score another time. Germain, who was taken over from AS Monaco in the summer of 2017, scored his 60th goal in Ligue 1 and his fifth of his season against his old employer. If he manages to score against Metz, he scores in his third official match in a row, something he has failed for four years.
With ten points from the last five games, Metz is working on an impressive series. Last weekend, Nice won 2-1, which means that Frédéric Hantz’s team can now still take the lead with eighteen points, but the gap to the safe seventeenth place is only seven points. Against Nice, the first half went on for a long time until, after about forty minutes, Nice came through a red card with ten men, from that moment Metz took over the control. In the second half, Les Grenats earned Nolan Roux the lead, but the Nice team returned to the game. Roux’s second goal turned out to be decisive, so that Les Grenats are now unbeaten four home games in a row.
Big man against Nice was striker Nolan Roux. Roux moved to AS Saint-Étienne in the summer of 2017 after a moderate season and, like Metz, did not start the season too convincingly. In the meantime that is completely reversed: with five goals in the last five league matches, Roux is almost the personification of the resurrection of Metz. Last season, the striker scored only four times, making it more productive than last season. Against Olympique Marseille, Roux can even break a milestone in his career: never before did the Frenchman score ten times or more in a regular season, something he now has fifteen games for.
