Match Preview

The Maroons welcome AS Monaco FC to the Stade Saint-Symphorien on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. Metz are in a dire run of form having just been destroyed by Rennes and with only Bordeaux picking up fewer points in the recent form table.

FC Metz come into the match on a run of eight league games without a win and have also failed to score in each of their last two home league matches. They have picked up three points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Les Graoullys lost their last league match away to Stade Rennais FC. Expected goals of 3.4 to 0.7 in favour of Rennes indicates that perhaps it was a fair result even if the end scoreline was a little harsh.

Louis Mafouta will be disappointed that his first league goal of this season for Metz didn't earn any points for his side as he scored a consolation goal when his side were already 6-0 down. He is 5/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 6-1.

Their opponent on Sunday, AS Monaco FC, come into the match having picked up eight points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Red and Whites won their last league match at home to Paris Saint Germain. Expected goals of 2.5 to 1.5 in favour of Monaco indicates it was likely a fair result although the scoreline was maybe a little flattering.

Les Rouges et Blancs's Wissam Ben Yedder was the man of the match as he continued his good form scoring a brace of goals against Paris Saint Germain. Ben Yedder keeps his place at the top of the scoring charts, one ahead of Martin Terrir, with 17 goals this season in the league for Monaco and is the 1.83/1 favourite to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 3-0.

FC Metz team news

Manuel Cabit (Traffic Accident), Matthieu Udol (Cruciate Ligament), and Fabien Centonze (Torn Muscle) will be unavailable for The Maroons due to injury on Sunday. Suspension also rules out Vincent Pajot for Metz here.

Louis Mafouta will hope his goalscoring cameo against Rennes earns him a starting place here. Given the hammering at the hands of Rennes, he likely wouldn’t be the only change made to the side.

AS Monaco FC team news

Injuries will rule out Jean Marcelin (Fitness) and Krépin Diatta (Cruciate Ligament) for the trip to the Stade Saint-Symphorien.

They are unlikely to make any changes to the side that beat Paris Saint Germain in their last league outing.
