Tip Reasoning

  • At least three goals have been scored in three of Strasbourg’s five Ligue 1 matches this season.
  • At least three goals have been scored in seven of the last nine Metz away league contests.
  • At least three goals were scored in both of last season’s derby matches between these teams.

Metz can make Racers go for goals in derby 

Strasbourg host Metz in the derby of the East on Friday with neither side appearing to be heading in the right direction.

The Racers have taken just four points from their first five games and have conceded the joint-second most number of goals in Ligue 1.

They will face a Metz side that has similarly struggled in the first five games, registering no wins to date and shipping almost as many goals as their hosts.

Strasbourg finished five spots below Les Grenats last season, but have undergone major defensive changes in the offseason with a new right-back and centre-back plugged in while the goalkeeping gloves have also changed hands since last season.

Their teething problems in defence may ease eventually, but now isn’t the time to be looking for clean sheets from Julian Stephan’s men.

Metz have not found any consistency so far, but their underlying stats do suggest they are more potent on their travels than at home.

The visitors have scored 19 goals in their last 12 Ligue 1 away trips and could help themselves to at least one this Friday while Strasbourg have scored seven in their last five at home, including three in their last run-out at Stade de la Meinau.

Our conclusion is to back at least three goals in the game, hoping that this edition of the derby is at least as productive as last season’s contests, which featured an average of 3.5 goals.
