Nice vs Metz team news

Nice

In the last six games in Ligue 1, Nice have notched three wins at home and they've lost three times in away matches. Overall, Nice still remain in the 2nd place in the standings, but they are now eight points behind PSG at the top, so they'll need to find their best form from the first half of the season if they want to have any hope of catching up with them.

Meanwhile, Jeremie Boga is with Ivory Coast and Nice's top scorer Terem Moffi is still with his national team too as Nigeria battles for the glory at AFCON 2023, while Youcef Atal and Hicham Boudaoui will also likely miss this match even though Algeria have been eliminated from the tournament. Sofiane Diop and Romain Perraud are on the team's injury list at the moment.

Predicted LineupBulka – Lotomba, Dante, Mendy, Bard – Ndayishimiye, Rosario, Claude-Maurice – Diop, Laborde, Cho

Metz

After five losses in a row in the league, Metz are now tied with Lyon, the first team in the relegation zone. Their current form clearly indicates that the team is up for a tough battle in the second part of the season as they try to keep their place in the top tier of French football.

When it comes to team news, Christophe Herelle is suspended for this game, while Oscar Estupinan remains on the sidelines with an injury. On top of that, Kevin Van den Kerkhof, Ablie Jallow, Fali Cande, and Lamine Camara are still at AFCON 2023.

Predicted LineupOukidja – Kouao, Herelle, Traore, Colin – Jacques, N'Doram, Atta, Mbaye, Sabaly – Mikautadze

Player to watch: Gaetan Laborde

With Boga and Moffi away at AFCON, Gaetan Laborde will once again have to shoulder the majority of offensive responsibilities for Nice, which is why he's our player to watch in this game.
