Our Prediction:

Metz will win

Metz – Amiens Match Prediction | 22-09-2019 14:00

A man to watch in the home team will be Diallo, who has already netted 11 goals in the French second tier so far this term. Amiens, on the other hand, have been struggling in the first half of the new Ligue 1 season, with the team sitting in the relegation zone in the standings. Metz and Amiens face each other at Stade Saint-Symphorien in what is expected to be a close encounter. Amiens experienced all sorts of problems in two consecutive defeats to PSG and Nantes and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Metzs party at Stade Saint-Symphorien. Metz are leading the Ligue 2 standings after 12 rounds and they are surely brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Amiens. Les Grenats rolled over Niort 3-0 in their last home game in the English second tier, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the Coupe de la Ligue clash.

Both teams will score in this game and it will end as a draw. I looked at both teams forms and their recent head to head match up when I was crafting my selection. With both teams having lots of problems creating goal scoring opportunities but also defending their own goal I can see this game based on my analysis being evenly matched.

Les Licornes, on the other hand, were on the verge of suffering a loss to Olympique Lyon in front of home fans at the weekend, but experienced defender Bodmer eventually helped Luka Elsners troops pick up one point from the game. Anyhow, we believe that Metz want this win more than Amiens, therefore, home win should be considered. Metz failed to find the net in previous three league fixtures, but given Amiens shaky defence, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out.

Amiens have only won one match so far against ten-man Lille and this poor form mixed with the difficulty of their opponents so far has given them extremely poor stats. They currently have created the worst xG in the league with just 2.71 after five games being an extremely pitiful effort.

Metz vs Amiens H2H

Les Grenats are after their second win of the season and the fact that they outclassed star-studded Monaco at home earlier this term is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Amiens. Metz will be aiming to put an end to their three-game losing run in the Ligue 1 when they host Amiens at their Stade Saint-Symphorien on Saturday evening.

Metz should be an equal opponent here though as they havent started this campaign with flying colours either. Metz have lost each of their last three matches without scoring a single goal in the process.

Amiens have managed to cement themselves as a lower table club but one that can cause opponents trouble on their day. That exact thing happened in their most recent match as they drew 2-2 with favourites Lyon. Amiens will be facing this years newly promoted side in Metz but the Unicorns know exactly what its like to be the new boys after their promotion to the top flight in 2017.

Metz has won only one of their last 5 games played the victory came against Monaco. For this game they will be having all of their players ready to contribute. They had 3 shots on target and will probably wait for their chances from the counter attack again in this game. The important thing is to say that none of those games had more than 2.5 goals so we could expect something similar here. Last time against Bordeaux they had fewer on ball possession but were more determined in front of the goal.

The club was founded back in 1901 by a group of players from the Association du Lycee dAmiens and nowadays les Licornes play their home games at Stade de La Licorne. Amiens got their job done on the final day of the season, with Emmanuel Bourgaud scoring a late winner in the game against Reims. Amiens is a French football club that compete in Ligue 1. Les Licornes (The Unicorns) finished the 2016/2017 Ligue 2 campaign in second place in the standings and, as a result, they secured promotion to the French top flight for the first time ever.

Highlighted Team (Amiens):

Amiens are winless in their last twelve away games with their most recent outing finishing 2-0 to Toulouse. Amiens have put together the worst xG on the road this season in Ligue 1 and had the second worst last year so we feel this will hold them back against Metz. Metz havent scored recently but still have Habib Diallo who is a natural finisher. He was the top goalscorer in Ligue 2 last season with 26 strikes so were backing him to be the man to earn all three points for Metz in a 1-0 win.

Nonetheless, he made no more than 1 appearance for the club and in 2006 he signed a contract with Ligue 1 club Lille. Alexandre Oukidja is a French goalkeeper who began his professional career at Gueugnon. The shoot-stopper, who was born in Nevers (France) on July 19, 1988, though, did not make his first-team debut for les Dogues and it has to be noted that he played 84 games for Lille B.

Metzs sole saving grace ahead of this match is their fantastic home form. They beat Monaco 3-0 and gave PSG a tough match in a 2-0 defeat but can they show that grit against Amiens? Metz have scored four goals so far in the league but three of them came in the same match against Monaco so they really need to improve in this department. Last season in Ligue 2 they lost just three of their 19 away games and this quality has been seen in their two matches at the Stade Saint-Symphorien this campaign.
