With four wins in the last five meetings with Metz, Monaco have clearly been the dominant team of the two. The situation is pretty much the same if we look at their overall H2H record too – 49-25-26 in favour of Monaco.

Metz preview: Keeping the hope of survival alive

After winning two in a row to give themselves a chance of staying up, Metz lost to Reims in the last round. So, the team remains in the relegation zone for now, but they are just three points behind a couple of teams who are currently safe. Eight rounds remain to be played in Ligue 1, so Metz will have to approach every game with a lot of urgency if they want to avoid relegation.

Meanwhile, Kevin N'Doram, Ismael Traore, Benjamin Tetteh, and Pape Diallo are out with injuries right now, while Danley Jean Jacques and Cheikh Sabaly are suspended.
