In a contest that could see chances at both ends of the pitch, Nice will host Metz on Saturday night when this weekend’s Ligue 1 fixtures get underway.
Starting with the hosts, managing to mark their return from the international break with an immediate return to winning ways, Nice have continued to impress many across France since opening the 2021/22 campaign. In their 14 Ligue 1 matchups so far this season, they have recorded eight wins, three draws and three defeats, scoring 25 and conceding 11 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 26, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat second in the standings and holding a three-point buffer from dropping out of the top-four. As for their recent run of results, last seen picking up a 2-1 victory away at Clermont, Nice have lost just one of their last five Ligue 1 contests. Likewise, it should also be noted, Saturday’s hosts have seen five of their last six top-flight fixtures finish with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, once again marking their return from the international break with a single point, Metz find themselves in the midst of what has been a worrying run of form. In their opening 14 Ligue 1 matchups so far this season, they have recorded just a single win, six draws and seven defeats, scoring 16 and conceding 30 in return. Along with opening this weekend’s fixtures sat rock-bottom of the table, it should also be noted that Metz hold the worst-defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of results, last seen playing out an action-packed 3-3 draw against Bordeaux on home soil, Saturday’s guests have drawn their last three Ligue 1 contests on the bounce. Likewise, it’s worth highlighting, with three of their last four fixtures on the road finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
