Match Preview

Les Rennais welcome FC Metz to the Roazhon Park on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. Les Grenats have the slight upper hand in the head-to-head, with 15 wins to Stade Rennais FC's 14, from their 44 encounters. Recently, Metz have struggled to find a win in this fixture though with just one victory in the last 18 matches in this head to head.

Stade Rennais FC come into the match on a run of four wins in a row. They have picked up 15 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Rennais won their last league match away to Olympique Lyonnais. Expected goals of 1.3 to 1.2 in favour of Rennes indicates they didn't deserve all three points on the balance of chances created.

To score four goals despite an xG of just 1.3 suggests some excellent finishing was on display from Rennes. Benjamin Bourigeaud, Baptiste Santamaria, and Martin Terrier all scored with their only shot on target in the match. The final score of the match was 2-4.

Terrier is Stade Rennais FC’s top scorer with 14 goals in Ligue 1 this season and is 2/1 to score against FC Metz on Sunday.

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

The Maroons’ last league match, at home to RC Lens, ended in a dull 0-0 draw. Expected goals of 0.8 to 0.7 in favour of Lens indicates both teams probably deserved only a point.

Kevin N'Doram had the best chance of the game for Metz, but missed the target with his close-range header from a corner.

N'Doram is still chasing his first league goal this season for FC Metz and is 23/1 to finally score one against Stade Rennais FC on Sunday.
