Monaco vs Metz Prediction 21 January 2018

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Stade Louis II
Match date: 21.01.2018 at 16:00

On January 21 2018 at 16:00 at the Stade Louis II in the upcoming game of the 22nd game week of the French national elite division Ligue 1 the local Monaco will play against Metz.

Monaco drew their latest two games against Montpellier 0:0 and Nice 2:2. These draws didn’t just make them lose their second position but also let Marseille and Lyon outplay them. Now they are on the 4th position in the standings which is just in the Europa League zone and it obviously doesn’t fit their ambitions. They really need to win not to make their situation even worse. Moreover, they are going to host the worst team of the league which is supposed to help them, in fact. We must actually remind you that Monaco won 8 of their 11 home games played in the current season where they only lost to PSG who are the absolute leaders of the league. Moreover, they won four of their 8 games with at least two goal difference.

Metz are the absolute opposite of Monaco. They failed the first half of the season and most of the experts are sure that they will relegate after the end of the current season. Yet, in the latest matches they managed to improve their performance and started to gain points. In the latest five matches Metz managed to gain 11 points of 15 possible while in the previous 16 matches they only gained 4. Moreover, they scored three goals to Saint-Etienne, Montpellier and Strasbourg. Moreover, they scored 11 goals in these latest five games.

Of course, we can’t ignore the improvements in the performance and results of Metz and yet Monaco are the team of absolutely different class and experience. Moreover, it’s always very difficult to play at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium while Metz aren’t that strong in the away matches they lost six times in their 10 away matches played while in four of them they conceded at least two goals. Moreover, Metz have some problems with the squad which may also make their performance a bit worse.

All of the facts we have already mentioned above make us think that the hosts are much more likely to win in the upcoming match and to do it with a convincing score.
