Our Prediction:

St Etienne will win

St Etienne – Metz Match Prediction | 26-09-2019 13:00

Saint-Etienne play host to Metz at their Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on day 7 of the new Ligue 1 campaign. Les Verts experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss at Angers in their last league match and there is every chance Wahbi Khazri will return to the starting XI against les Grenats. Over the years Saint-Etienne have turned their stadium into a real fortress and we predict that they are going to return to winning ways in the French elite division on Wednesday evening.

Thanks to amalgamation of two amateur clubs Metz were founded in 1932 and soon they became a professional team. Metz finished the 1997/1998 season in second place in the standings and it has to be noted that they were level on points with champions Lens (worse goal difference). Les Grenats are one of the oldest professional teams in France, but they have yet to win the Ligue 1 trophy.

The 182-cm-tall left back made his Toulouse debut on 15 September, 2007 against Marseille, coming from the bench in the second half of the match. Born in Toulouse on 23 July, 1988, Cheikh MBengue started his youth career at FA Roques. In 1996 Toulouse scouts spotted him and he soon joined the French team. A week later he made his first start for les Pitchouns in a 2-0 loss to Saint Etienne.

It has to be noted that Metz are after their first win over Saint-Etienne since 2001. Les Grenats, on the other hand, suffered back-to-back defeats to the likes of Troyes and Nantes in previous two league fixtures and we predict that they will extend their losing run in the French elite division this weekend. Les Verts recorded only one win in previous five league fixtures and they have been slipping down the standings week by week. Oscar Garcias men are eyeing a place in European competitions and, no doubt, they will take Saturdays football match against Metz very seriously. Saint-Etienne made a flying start to the season, but they have been struggling to find their best form in the Ligue 1 of late. French rising star Jonathan Bamba has netted four goals in the national championship so far this term and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.

It will be close, with these teams sharing just the one clean sheet between them but ultimately were backing the home side to win 2-1. Saint-tienne are still to lose at home, despite their poor form and with Metz winning just three of their last eleven away trips (three in Ligue 1, the other eight in Ligue 2), were expecting les Verts to get all three points. Saint-tienne had a very good home record last season and were expecting them to show it against a very poor Metz side. This match is really going to be a slog fest between two under-performing teams but with Metz relying so much on one player, were backing the hosts to get their second win of the season here.

2019-20 Ligue 1 Saint-Etienne vs Metz Preview & Prediction

New manager Ghislain Printant has only taken charge of seven matches so far but he has already been asked to resign by the clubs hierarchy, according to reports. Printant won his first game of the season but they have been in free fall since then with four losses and two draws in the six games since. Possibly their worst result yet came at the weekend as they were thrashed 4-1 by last years 13th place side Angers.

Les Grenats, on the other hand, suffered back-to-back defeats to the likes of Troyes and Nantes in previous two league fixtures and we predict that they will extend their losing run in the French elite division this weekend.

Metz vs St Etienne Betting Tips and Odds

They have lost their last four matches, including an extremely hurtful 2-1 defeat to fellow relegation squabblers Amiens at the weekend. Metz sit one place behind Saint-tienne in the table but this will be their best opportunity in quite a while to get three points.

St Etienne did not start this season in a good way as they only have 5 points from 5 games played. We dont usually see many goals being scored in their duels. In fact, we saw both teams scoring only once in their previous 7 matches. Last time these two teams faced each other they defeated Metz 2:0. These two teams have played a lot of games in their recent Head-to-Head history, with St Etienne being a better rival most of the time.

The misery for Saint-tienne gets worse the further you delve into the numbers as its not even as if theyve been terribly unlucky this season, just poor in all aspects.
