Metz have a huge chance to ease their relegation woes with a win this weekend – Photo by Icon Sport

If Metz can pick up three points on the road this weekend, they will move to just one point behind Le Havre who are in the relegation play-off spot, and with Strasbourg in poor form, it could be a perfect opportunity.

Draw: 5/2 (3.5) – 28.6%

Away: 11/5 (3.2) – 31.3%

Despite Metz having more on the line for this picture, the bookmakers see them having way too much to do and won't be able to overcome Strasbourg. However, they will be coming out all guns blazing in search of three points.

Last five H2Hs: Le Racins Le RCS have dominated

Strasbourg have won the previous four matches against Metz and the one before that was a 2-2 stalemate. As well as multiple victories, they have also managed to keep three clean sheets in a row, something which doesn't bode well in a must-win game for Metz.

Strasbourg preview: Set to dash the hopes

Since safety was secured in Ligue 1, Patrick Vieira's side have certainly taken their foot off the gas. Strasbourg have lost three on the bounce, conceding seven and scoring just two in the process, so their fans may be drawing this fixture.

Predicted lineup: Bellarouch (GK) – Sylla, Perrin, Guilbert – Delaine, Sissoko, Santos, Dion – Sebas, Emegha, Bakwa

Metz preview: All or nothing

Two wins in their last four against Lens and Le Havre has Metz still within a shout of at least finishing third from bottom, but they must win this match against Strasbourg. This is so they have a chance on the final day of the season, but also because that game is against PSG.

Predicted lineup: Oukidja (GK) – Cande, Herelle, Traore, Colin – N'Doram, Camara, Atta – Diallo, Sane, Jallow

Ibou Sane of Metz

Player to watch: Ibou Sane

Given top scorer Georges Mikautadze is now suspended for this game and the rest of the season for a very harsh red card, it's a chance for teenager Ibou Sane to step up and lead the line for the first time in his short Metz career. It is a huge risk for Metz, but one which could be worth taking given their precarious position.

Young blood to inspire change

Sane is yet to start a Ligue 1 game this season, desperate times call for desperate measures and that is to throw him in the deep end. The Senegalese striker has scored one in his last 13 minutes of first-team football, so he could use that to surprise Strasbourg.
