Metz vs Troyes Prediction, Betting Odds and Free Tips (12/09/2021)

 Metz will win

While both teams are currently struggling with poor form, Metz looks better in the offensive and defensively. The hosts are our favourites to win this game. They have 3D and 1L in the first four games while Troyes has 1D and 3L in as many matches played so far. Metz has not lost at home since the start of a new season, bagging two draws so far. On the other hand, Troyes has 1D and 1L in two away games played so far. Metz boasts three victories of Troyes in the last four meetings even though none of them was Ligue 1 fixtures.

Metz to score first

Metz may be struggling at the back but they equally have a better scoring record coming to this game. The hosts average 1.5 goals in four games. At home, they average 2 goals in two games. On the other hand, Troyes has seen three games slip away due to defensive woes. The visitors average 0.5 goals on the road after two trips this season. Moreover, Troyes has leaked an average of 1.5 goals away from home after two games on the road.

Few goals expected

This fixture comes on the back of an international break. Given that both sides have defensive problems, we expect some reinforcements from managers of both teams in this fixture. A review of previous meetings shows that a tough duel has always existed between Metz and Troyes, the more reason we don’t expect either side to go down easily.

Match Preview: Metz Looking for Ligue 1 Revenge against Troyes

This fixture comes on the back of an international friendly match barely two months ago. The hosts hope to get their revenge against Troyes in Ligue 1. The last Ligue 1 meeting between Metz and Troyes was in the 2017/18 season. Troyes bagged 1-0 victory away from home and replicated the same at home in early 2018. They would late meet again in an international friendly after getting relegated to Ligue 2. In the 2018/19 season, these teams played against each other in Ligue 2. Metz bagged a 1-0 victory and secured a point in a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture. Based on recent performances of these teams, Metz stands a chance of getting their revenge against struggling Troyes. Troyes has been awful on the road and so, they have a tough test to prove themselves in the fifth Ligue 1 fixture this season.
