The visitors, in turn, have gained promotion to the elite division. Impressive spurt of four wins in a row allowed the visitors to take 65 points in 37 matches with 54-38 aggregate goal difference. Metz are currently third in the standings and they will start next season in the Ligue 1 among the best French teams. Metz have taken 28 points in 18 matches on the road with positive 24-22 goal difference. Moreover, the team won 3 out of their last 4 away league games with 9-5 aggregate score.
The reverse fixture ended with a scoreless draw and it’s hard to expect teams to show their best performance or strive in meaningless match so number of goals should be small.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals.
