A 2-0 win the reverse game gives Troyes some advantage in this game. And together with the support of home fans, can Troyes edge out Metz yet again? Our best two picks for this Ligue 1 game are as follows:
Under 2.5 @18/25 (1.72)
These teams are struggling to score goals home and away respectively. However, they have been quite good defensively. Our first pick is Under 2.5. Looking at the last ten meetings, seven matches had fewer than three goals.
Home team will score first @ 61/100 (1.61)
The hosts will be on the front foot in this game. They have a 2-0 goal advantage in the reverse fixture. Playing at home is equally a big factor here, so backing Troyes to score first is a good bet with a good price.

Game Preview: Metz Could Face another Challenge in Fight for Survival
Troyes won 2-0 in the reverse encounter but given that Metz will fight for survival points, the hosts must work extra hard to win this match. Both teams have remained unpredictable in recent games and should struggle to score in this fixture. For example, Troyes recorded only one win, one draw and three losses in their last five games. The performance puts their chances of winning this game in serious doubt, especially against a team that is fighting for survival.
On the other hand, Metz had similar results as Troyes in the last five games, a record which explains why this fixture is unlikely to yield lots of goals. But if we look beyond form, home advantage should play significance in favour of Troyes in this game. The hosts have won only twice at home, bagged four draws and lost five times. On the contrary, Metz recorded 3W, 3D and 5L in 11 trips so far.
Metz leaked an average of 1.8 goals in 11 trips and scored 0.91 goals in those away games. On the flip-side, the hosts have 1.00 goals on home soil and leaked a goal average of 1.18. These stats betray no signs of teams that are struggling to score goals in Ligue 1 this season.
Troyes predicted lineup: Gallon, Biancone, Salmier, Hajjam, Palmer-Brown, Domingues, Chambost, Tardieu, Chavalerin, Conte and Rodriguez.
Metz predicted lineup: Caillard, Amadou, Kana-Biyik, Mbengue, Delaine, Pajot, Traore, Yade, Boulaya, Nguette and Niane.
