Metz vs Montpellier Prediction 21 January 2017

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Saint-Symphorien Stadium
Match date: 21.01.2017 at 19:00

On January 21 2017 at 19:00 in the regular game of the 21st matchday of the French Ligue 1 at the Saint-Symphorien Stadium the local Metz play against Montpellier.

Metz managed to make it to the French elite division after the successful previous season in the Ligue 2. Yet, they appeared to be not ready to face the challenges of the Ligue1. Even though Metz haven’t lost for two games already, their results are still not successful enough; the team is still on the last place in the standings. In the latest matches Metz drew Nice 0:0 and Guingamp 2:2, lost to Caen 3:0 and Bastia 2:0.

Montpellier are the regular middle-peasants of the Ligue 1 and this season they show nothing unpredictable but the results which let them take their position in the middle of the table. Yet, the distance between the teams in the standings is so tiny, that the twelfth position is only three points above the relegation zone. Montpellier look more or less stable in the home games unlike the away matches where they only gained 4 points in the 10 games with 12:25 goal difference.

The history of the latest matches played between the teams show the advantage of Metz. In the first round game of the current championship they also managed to win 0:1. Both of the teams are by far not in their best conditions in at the moment. They both left the national Cup to concentrate on the national championship and stay in the elite division. Anyway, Montpellier are more experienced and seem to be able to gain points in the upcoming match against the absolute outsiders of the league.
