Looking at the Nantes vs Metz odds, we can see that the home team are the expected winners. While Nantes didn't really light the league on fire this season, they did win two of their last three games.

Furthermore, Metz have been in a disastrous form and without a win for 10 games in a row in Ligue 1, nine of which they've lost. So, Nantes being the favourites certainly makes sense.

Nantes have only won once in their last eight duels against Metz. That being said, most of their recent matches have ended without a winner and overall, Nantes have been the better team throughout history – 34-40-26.

Nantes preview: Another win for a peace of mind?

Thanks to their two wins in the last three rounds, Nantes remain three points ahead of the first team in the relegation zone and if they can beat Metz, one of the teams in it, they might be in for a stress-free final stretch of the season.

Meanwhile, Kelvin Amian, Ignatius Ganago, and Bastien Meupiyou are on the sidelines with injuries, while the team's top scorer Mostafa Mohamed is questionable.

Metz preview: Is there an end to Metz's horrendous streak?

Ten games have now passed since Metz last won a match in Ligue 1 and what's even worse, they have lost nine times in that span, only salvaging one point. So, Metz currently sit deep in the relegation zone and they remain one of the top candidates for relegation.

Kevin N'Doram, Benjamin Tetteh, and Ablie Jallow are on the team's injury list at this time.

Predicted LineupOukidja – Van Den Kerkhof, Herelle, Sane, Traore, Udol – Jacques, Nduquidi – Camara – Lamkel Ze, Mikautadze

Player to watch: Florent Mollet

While Mollet doesn't have an eye-popping goalscoring tally this season in Ligue 1 with four goals to his name, that still makes him Nantes' second-best goalscorer in the league.

Mollet to score the first goal?

Admittedly, the sample size is not really large enough, but when Mollet scores, chances are he'll score first since two of his four league goals were the first goals of the match.
