Metz hosts Paris Saint-Germain in round 34 of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Saturday, April 24th at Stade Saint-Symphorien (Metz).
Metz has not won since March 3. And if we look at recent matches, it looks like the team has completely forgotten how to score. The Maroons upset the opponents’ goalkeeper only once in the last five rounds. The team suffered four defeats and managed to gain a draw only in the last match against Reims (0-0). Frederic Antonetti's men gained their last victory in the championship in the 27th round (2-1 over Bordeaux).
The Parisians continue their successful participation in three tournaments. Paris Saint-Germain have defeated their opponents in four of the last five matches. First, the club was stronger than Bayern Munich in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals (2-3) and beat Strasbourg in the championship (4-1). After that, the Parisians lost to the Germans at home (0-1) but went further. And then they earned three points in the game against Saint-Etienne (3-2) and reached the semifinals of the French Cup (a 5-0 victory over Angers). PSG and their opponents have scored five goals in four of the last five matches. And both teams scored in three out of five cases.
The Parisians have an unconditional advantage in head-to-head meetings. They won all five of their last matches and didn’t concede from Metz in three games in a row. Now the infirmary of both teams is full of injured players. Midfielders Vincent Pajot, Warren Tchimbembe, and Manuel Cabit, defender Kevin N'Doram, as well as strikers Ibrahima Niane and Opa Nguette will not play for Metz. The coaching staff of PSG cannot count on defenders Marquinhos, Abdou Diallo, and Juan Bernat, midfielders Rafinha and Marco Verratti, as well as goalkeepers Keylor Navas and Alexander Letellier. PSG cannot win with a clean sheet for five championship matches. And the game against Metz is the perfect opportunity to end this streak. The Maroons were able to score in only two of their last five home matches, and even then one goal in each. Beyond that, PSG have not conceded from Metz in their last three head-to-head meetings.
