Metz hosts Rennes in round 16 of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Wednesday, December 4th at Stade Municipal Saint-Symphorien (Metz)
Metz gradually adjusts the game and does not lose for four matches in a row. And most importantly, the team scores regularly, although the L1 rookie has a rather weak squad. But Diallo, who scored 26 goals in Ligue 2, continues to play productively in the elite division of France. A Senegalese has nine goals scored, and he is inferior only to Dembele in the top scorers’ list. In general, the Maroons did not score in only one of the last five matches. Moreover, the team of Hognon failed to breach only the defense of the vice-champion of France during this period.

Rennes continues to be unstable this season, but the Red-Blacks rarely leave the field without goals. They failed to score in only five of 19 matches. Yes, and here it is worth noting that in the home game with CFR Cluj, Stephan's team picked up a red card already in the fifth minute and finished the game with nine players. Visiting the Romanians, Rennes created an abundance of goal attempts, delivered 10 shots on target, but was unlucky again. The Red-Blacks completely failed in the Europa League, but they are only two points behind the third line in the local championship (and there is still a game in hand). And Stephan’s team will be very motivated for the match with the league rookie and try to break into the top three.
An exchange of goals in the upcoming meeting is likely. Metz scored 10 out of 13 goals in L1 on its pitch. And only the champions of France kept a clean sheet at the Maroons’ stadium. Even Reims, whose defense is the most reliable in the league, conceded in Metz. Rennes is also unlikely to withstand under pressure of Hignon’s team. The Red-Blacks have conceded at least one goal for the last 14 games in a row. In general, Stephan’s men have only three clean sheets in 19 matches of this season. And Rennes conceded from all the teams from the relegation zone. Metz also cannot boast of a good game in defense. Even at home, the Maroons kept a clean sheet in only two out of eight matches. In general, the team of Hognon has only 25% of matches with clean sheets. The bet “Both to score - yes” took place in five of eight Metz’s home games and five of the last six away matches of Rennes. Therefore, there is a high probability that this result will be recorded again.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score - yes
