Match Preview

The Paladins welcome FC Metz to the Stade de la Mosson on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. Montpellier look set to finish the season comfortably in midtable regardless of the outcome here. However, Metz’s relegation could be confirmed with a defeat here if results elsewhere also go against them.

Montpellier HSC come into the match on a run of five league games without a win. They have picked up four points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

La Paillade lost heavily in their last league match away to Olympique Lyonnais. Expected goals of 3.4 to 2.0 in favour of Lyon indicates perhaps it was a fair result. There was hope when they got it back to 2-2 just after half time they could get something from the game. However, Les Pailladins shipped three goals without reply in the final half-hour. The final score of the match was 5-2.

Sepe Elye Wahi grabbed their first goal here against Lyon right before the halftime whistle. He is Montpellier HSC’s top scorer with nine goals in Ligue 1 this season and is the 5.5/1 favourite to score the opening goal against FC Metz on Sunday.

Their opponent on Sunday, FC Metz, come into the match on a run of 13 league games without a win and have failed to score in each of their last two league matches. They have picked up just one point from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Maroons lost their last league match at home to Stade Brestois. Expected goals of 1.9 to 0.4 in favour of Brest indicates perhaps it was a fair result. The Les Grenats fans will be particularly disappointed with the attacking performance with their side failing to create any big chances and failing to register a single one of their ten shots on target in the match. The final score of the match was 0-1.

Nicolas de Préville is FC Metz’s top scorer with five goals in Ligue 1 this season and is 4/1 to score against Montpellier HSC on Sunday.
