Nancy vs Metz Predictions

18th placed Nancy have attained some positive results following the international break and Pablo Correa’s side will try and move out of the Ligue 1 relegation zone on Wednesday evening when they square off with 11th placed Metz at Stade Marcel Picot.

Nancy backed up a 1-0 home victory against Dijon on match day 13 with a solid 0-0 draw away to Montpellier at the weekend and they are now level on points with 17th placed Nantes heading into this midweek clash.

With Les Canaris unlikely to find a win in their game at home to Lyon, a victory here for Nancy would see them climb out of the bottom three and the bookmakers rate Correa’s men odds-on to do just that.

However, the 10/11 about a Nancy win seems a little short considering opponents Metz beat Toulouse when last on the road and have the 5th best away record in Ligue 1 so far this season with 10 points gained from seven matches.

A 3-3 home draw with bottom side Lorient at the weekend will be viewed by many as a step back in the wrong direction by Les Grenats however they were 1-3 down in that game and fought back valiantly with a brace from Thibaut Vion.

And whilst their performance from a defensive perspective was pretty awful, they’ve only conceded six goals on their travels so it’s easy to assume they may have less to worry about against a Nancy side that have managed to score just five goals in seven matches at Stade Marcel Picot.

Conversely, Metz have a meagre tally of 16 goals across their 14 Ligue 1 games in 2016/17 so with Nancy holding out for two clean sheets in their last two, Wednesday’s fixture could well be a cagey affair.

With that in mind, and the fact the teams drew both of their clashes in Ligue 2 last season, the draw looks the best bet here at 5/2.

And with Metz top scorer Mevlut Erdinc unlikely to start following a recent injury, we fancy a 0-0 stalemate at higher than average odds of 15/2 with goals likely to be at a premium.
