Metz will be hoping to return to winning ways here following a 2-1 Ligue 1 losing effort in their last game against FC Lorient.
It’s not been often in recent times where FC Metz haven’t conceded. The reality is that Les Grenats have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 11 goals along the way.
Marseille will go into this clash following a 3-2 Ligue 1 win in the defeat of Angers SCO in their previous match.
The stats tell the story, and Marseille have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 10 goals in all. Defensively, Les Olympiens have not been doing too well. Previous results aside, time will tell if such a trend will be maintained here in this game or not.
Coming into this clash, Marseille are undefeated by FC Metz when they've played them away from home in the last 2 league matches.
Team News: Metz
Manuel Cabit (Traffic Accident) and Warren Tchimbembé (Meniscal Injury) won’t be available for Metz manager Frédéric Antonetti.
Team News: Marseille
Thanks to a mainly full-strength group of players, there’s just a single fitness problem for the Marseille boss Jorge Sampaoli to be concerned about. Hiroki Sakai (Sciatic Problem) won’t be in action. Florian Thauvin is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We believe that Metz will do well to score goals against this Marseille lineup who we reckon will emerge victorious.
Therefore, we predict a hard-fought 0-1 winning margin for Marseille when the full-time whistle blows.
