Reason For Metz vs Reims Predictions

  • Metz have lost their opening three Ligue 1 games 1-0 
  • Only three of the last 12 meetings between the pair has rewarded over 2.5 goals
  • Reims’s 14 away league games last season produced just 28 goals – an average of two-goals-per-game

Goals could be hard to come by 

Metz have lost their opening three Ligue 1 games 1-0, while Reims have just one point to show from their three assignments and have suffered two losses by the same scoreline.

Given both meetings last season produced just three goals – a 1-1 draw here in November was followed by a 1-0 win for Metz in Reims – and the lack of firepower they have shown in their opening three games, a low-scoring affair looks likely.

In fact, only three of the last 12 meetings between the pair has rewarded over 2.5 goals, so that looks the best approach for punters.

Reims finished sixth last season, seven points ahead of 15th-placed Metz, and it would be too soon to say they can’t repeat those efforts considering their opening three games have seen them face Monaco, Lille and Angers.

The additions of Valon Berisha from Lazio and Stuttgart’s Anastasios Donis offer plenty of optimism and their 2-2 draw at an unbeaten Monaco in late August is the best recent form on offer.

If there is to be a winner, Reims look most likely with a 1-0 scoreline favoured. The visitors won their Europa League qualifier in Switzerland against Servette by that scoreline in midweek.
