Metz vs. Reims – Prediction & Odds (Ligue 1 – 23.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Metz are unbeaten in their last eight Ligue 1 games against Reims (W6 D2), their last loss was in June 1976 (2-3).

Metz come into this game hoping to regain some momentum after claiming only one win across their last six Ligue 1 (L1) fixtures (W1, D3, L2). Despite that, the hosts will be confident of victory here, having not lost a competitive meeting with Reims at Stade Saint-Symphorien since 1975/76. Habib Diallo has netted Metz’s opening goal in each of the seven league games in which he has scored. If Metz do win here, it could be with a clean sheet, as ‘Les Grenats’ have kept one in each of their three victories this L1 campaign. Interestingly, just two of Metz’s 13 league games to date have featured a draw at half-time (HT: W4, D2, L7), although at least one side failed to score before the break on each occasion.

Metz have conceded 66.67% of the league goals scored against them this term before the break. Reims’ L1 fixtures this term have averaged 0.46 first-half goals per fixture – a league low. The last four H2Hs across France’s top two divisions held here have seen at least one side fail to score.

Visitors Reims have seen all but one of their 13 games this season produce less than 2.5 goals, with at least one team drawing a blank on ten occasions. Moreover, nine of their matches this term have also produced a goalless first half. Reims’ Rémi Oudin has scored exactly one goal in the second half in each of his last six goalscoring games in the league. Sticking with a potentially low-scoring theme, the visitors have seen over 2.5 goals in only three of their last 21 away league outings, while each of their six L1 road trips this campaign have featured only one side scoring. Nonetheless, Reims have conceded first in just 32% (eight) of their last 25 L1 away matches.
