Both teams will find the net

Our first pick is goals on both sides of the pitch. These teams have unpredictable defending and after two games, they have both conceded at least three goals. The visitors recorded a 0-0 result in their first game and a 3-3 against Montpellier in the second matchup. On the flipside, Metz lost 2-0 in the second game and only secured a hard-fought 3-3 draw in the second game. Both sides leaked goals in four of their last five games.

Few goals expected

Despite a shaky defence on both sides, we don't expect many goals in this fixture. A fixture between Metz and Reims has always been a tense one. There were less than three goals in five of the last six meetings, three of which were draws.

Match Preview: It is a Battle for the First Victory this Season

Metz and Reims will battle it out in the third fixture of the season. Notably, these teams are yet to get a win this season, which makes this match even more interesting. Metz has not lost a match to Reims in the last seven Ligue 1 meetings hence presumed the favourites in this fixture. However, after leaking five goals in the first two games, Metz looks vulnerable at the back. The hosts come to this game with a 2-0 loss to Nantes, a side that struggled to survive relegation last season. On the other hand, Reims has kicked off the new season with two draws and come to this game with a 3-3 result against Montpellier. The visitors will bank on their improved defence to get a result here despite a poor record against Metz in the last seven meetings.
