Tip Reasoning

  • Metz are winless in ten games
  • Metz have conceded eleven in their last three games
  • Clermont have conceded twelve in their last three games

The relegation battle

Clermont travel to Metz on Sunday with ambitions of distancing themselves from the relegation zone – and playing the league’s bottom side will provide the ideal opportunity.

Clermont currently sit seventeenth in the table, one point above the relegation zone, and could pull even further away if results go their way. Metz, on the other hand, are rock bottom, five points away from safety, and a win for them would drag them to within two points of their opponents going into the final four six games of the season.

Leaky defences and a lack of goals

With both sides conceding an abundance of goals, especially in their recent three games – Clermont having conceded twelve in that time, and eleven going against Metz – goals can be expected in this game. Neither side, however, have a good goal record this season, and will look to capitalise on their opponents’ defensive shortcomings.

Twenty-eight goals in thirty-one games for Metz, while there opponents only have thirty-one in as many games, is a key part of what has both teams sitting in and around the relegation zone.

Poor runs of form

Clermont’s last win came six games ago, and that run without a win is even longer for Metz with ten. One of these runs should come to an end on Sunday, and with Clermont being in very slightly better form leaves them as the tip for the game.
