Nantes – Metz : Preview & Prediction
FC Nantes is sliding dangerously low in the rankings due to a very bad series which has lasted for a month. The current 12th in Ligue 1, which is however only 3 points from Strasbourg, 6th, has not won since January 12th. Eliminated by Lyon (3-4) in the Coupe de France, the Nantes continued with 3 defeats against Bordeaux (0-1), in Rennes (3-2) and against PSG (1-2). Last weekend, the Canaries stopped this negative spiral by gleaning 1 point from their trip to Dijon (3-3) thanks to an equalization in additional time by Andrei Girotto (90th + 2). The arrival of FC Metz, 16th, may be the ideal opportunity for the training of Christian Gourcuff to revive in the championship. The Grenats failed at home against Bordeaux (1-2) on the last day when the latter had just capitalized 10 points against Strasbourg (1-0), in Reims (1-0), against St Etienne (3- 1) and in Montpellier (1-1). FC Metz, reduced to 10 following the expulsion of Pajot from the 8th minute against the Girondins, could have achieved a completely different result without this fact of play.
FC Metz remains on 2 matches without success in Ligue 1.
The Garnets are 16th overall not far from the relegation zone (3 points).
Nantes is 12th but must return to return to the first part of the table as quickly as possible.
Nantes broke its streak of 4 defeats in a row by taking 1 point in Dijon last weekend.
During the 2017-2018 season, the Canaries had won 1 goal to 0 against the Grenats at Beaujoire.
Faced with Messins on the upward slope, FC Nantes will have to be vigilant and play seriously to return to a victory that would do it the greatest good.
