Reims – Metz : Preview & Prediction
Reims, 8th overall, is only one victory from this 4th place giving the right to compete in the next Europa League. The ambition of Reims will be great when FC Metz, poorly classified and not very bright on the road, arrives. However, the Rémois must launch a series because they remain on 1 recent elimination in the semi-final of the Coupe de la Ligue against PSG (0-3) and on 2 games without a league win in Nîmes (2-0) and Amiens (1-0). With 2 points taken from 9 in play in Ligue 1, the Champagne club draws a little but the reception of Metz can serve as a raise. The Garnets are only 2 small points ahead of Amiens, 18th, and the situation is therefore tense! The victory over Strasbourg (1-0) at home on the last day will have done good, however, in the morale of Vincent Hognon’s troops, but the situation remains very precarious. Away, Diallo’s partners (10 goals) have no longer tasted the joys of victory since September 25 and therefore remain on a series of 7 unsuccessful matches (3 draws and 4 defeats) with a humiliating elimination in Rouen (3-0) in the Coupe de France on January 6.
FC Metz have won only 1 away game in the league since the start of the season.
Reims, apart from Lille, is the team to have lost the least home match (1).
Reims is 8th in Ligue 1.
FC Metz is 17th and therefore under pressure compared to the relegation zone.
Stade Rémois is undefeated in the last 5 receptions for FC Metz.
Metz remains on 1 rout in Rouen (3-0) in the Coupe de France for its last match away from St Symphorien.
Author of a draw in Lorraine (1-1) in the first leg, Reims should come out victorious in this second leg in his Auguste Delaune II stadium.
