Reason For Metz VS Caen Betting Tips

This game promises to be a game of huge significance in the battle to stay in Ligue 1. The sides are just one place apart in the table and are separated by 3 points, although Metz do have a game in hand on their rivals. The home side are in dire form in the past 2 months and have won only 1 of their previous 8 games. Their salvation has been a 1-0 win over lowly Bastia, which helped to keep them in 15th position.

Metz will likely need a minimum of 2 victories from their final 7 games to secure safety, but at present it is difficult to see them getting those wins. They have managed a paltry 29 goals from their 31 matches so far and to make matters worse, their leaky defence has conceded 59 times. Games like the one on Saturday are ones they will have to target if they are to escape the drop, with the visit of champions PSG in the next match. Mevlut Erding has been the team’s top goal-getter, but he has only notched 6 times during 2016/17. With Erding currently injured, it is difficult to see where any goals will come from.

Caen are in even worse form than their hosts, and have only 1 point from their last 5 games. February victories over Nancy and St Etienne gave them breathing space from the bottom 3, but they are now just 1 point off 17th in the table. Ivan Santini has been the main man for the side scoring 12 times, many of them important strikes, as Caen battle to avoid the drop.

We expect this to be a tense affair with not much between the sides. Our advice is to back a Both Teams To Score No bet at evens with bet365.
