Metz vs Saint-Etienne Prediction 17 January 2018

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Stade Saint-Symphorien
Match date: 17.01.2018 at 18:00

On January 17 2018 at 18:00 in the regular 21st game of the French Ligue 1 at the Stade Saint-Symphorien the local Metz will host their guests Saint-Etienne.

On January 13 Metz played their latest game of the national championship as they met Dijon and they managed to draw 1:1 in the end. That draw also prolonged their lossless series to make it 4 games long already. Despite the fact that Metz gained 8 points in their latest four games, they still only have 12 points gained in their 20 matches played since the start of the championship which leaves them on the last place in the standings. Yet, now they are 7 points below their closest competitors.

As for Saint-Etienne, they outplayed the outsiders of the league Toulouse in the latest match of the national championship and that victory was their first one since October 14 for 11 matches in a row already. The Greens aren’t very successful in the current season and they will probably have to compete for staying in the national elite division as they are now on the 14th place in the table with 23 points gained and 20:33 goal difference. Moreover, Saint-Etienne aren’t very convincing in their away matches as they only gained 7 points in all of their away games played this season with 5:16 goal difference.

Saint-Etienne have an advantage in the history of head-to-heads of the teams, in fact. We must remind you that in the first round game of the current season of the national championship Saint-Etienne won 3:1/ anyway, Metz are playing at home this time and despite the fact that they are the absolute outsiders of the league, they still haven’t lost for four matches already. That’s why it seems to us that the hosts are very likely to avoid a loss this time.
