Metz vs Saint-Etienne: prediction for the Ligue 1 match
After a successful performance in the previous season, which brought a mid-season finish to the hosts, but start of the current season turned out to be unsuccessful. In 11 rounds of Ligue 1 Messins recorded only one victory over Brest (2:1) and three draws, which brought them six points and a 19th spot in the standings.
Team has a terrible defensive record, they conceded 26 goals. In the most recent round Metz failed to put up a fight against Lens (1:4).
Cabit, Kouyate, Niane and Joseph won't be able to play in the match against Saint-Etienne.
In the previous season Saint-Etienne managed to keep their Ligue 1 spot, but it will be even harder to do that in the new season. After 11 rounds of Ligue 1 Saints have five draws and no victories, which brought them five points and a bottom spot in the standings.
In three most recent matches The Greens had a draw against Lyon (1:1), suffered a defeat to Strasbourg (1:5) and then split the points with Angers (2:2).
Green, Sissoko, Kolodziejczak and Trauco are on team's injuried list.

In our opinion, it will be a close match. Both teams are at the bottom of the standings and are desperate to leave the relegation zone. We think that opponents won't sit out on defense and will try to find a goal since the first minutes.
Our prediction - total over 2,5 goals
