Marseille – Metz : Preview & Prediction
Marseille, runner-up to PSG last year after a very good season, will therefore return to the Champions League this season. This year, after two great victories against Best (2-3) and PSG (0-1), which Marseille had not beaten for a decade, OM quickly fell back to earth with a defeat against Saint-Étienne ( 0-2) and a draw against Lille (1-1) at home in a match where the Marseillais showed great difficulty.
Metz, 15th last year, had difficulty resuming this new 2020/2021 financial year. After 3 consecutive defeats (three times 1-0 against Monaco at home, and LOSC and PSG away), Metz finally won a match by beating Reims 2-1 last weekend.
Marseille finished 5th (out of 20) at home in Ligue 1 last year with 8 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses.
Marseille have scored 21 goals and conceded 14 in 14 home league games last year.
Metz finished 8th in Ligue 1 away from home last year with 3 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses.
Metz scored 9 goals and conceded 18 in 14 away league games last year. Which made it the third worst attack but the fifth best defense!
Marseille should logically revive at home, and pocket the 3 points. Metz has also lost his two trips this season. Victory for the Olympique de Marseille!
