Metz take on the visitors St. Etienne in the second leg of French Ligue 1 relegation playoffs final. The first leg result: 1-2. The match will be played on Sunday, April 2nd at Stade Saint-Symphorien (Metz).

Metz

Metz squandered the chance to relax already. The Dark Reds once again rose to Ligue 1 in 2022 and had a decent season, even reaching the finals of the Coupe de France. It seemed that this season in the league was also going well. However, it looks like the players believed this too early, and experienced coach Laszlo Bölöni failed to curb this dangerous trend in time. As a result, the team lost four games in a row to Lille, Rennes, Strasbourg, and PSG. The efforts of Mikautadze, who returned after a disappointing half-year at Ajax in mid-winter and managed to score 13 goals, didn't help. Ultimately, they only managed to finish 17th, with Havre having 3 points more. They went into the playoffs, where they equalized away after conceding first, but eventually lost 1-2.

St. Etienne

Saint-Étienne were once one of the best clubs in the country. But recently, they have not been shining. They even suffered point deductions due to financial problems after falling into the second division. However, new ambitious owners came into the project, and after a rebranding, they made significant progress this season. But they couldn't secure direct promotion due to a poor finish: in May, they ended with a couple of draws and a defeat to Quevilly. As a result, they lagged behind not only the clear favorite Auxerre but also Angers by 3 points. The team went into the playoffs, and they won the first round confidently, beating Rodez 2-0. In the next round, starting at home, they managed to edge their opponent with a goal in the 80th minute, but the 2-1 scoreline guarantees nothing.

Verdict

The Greens took 7 out of 9 possible points. However, in the last two matches of the 2022/2023 season in Ligue 2, the Dark Reds won both times. There is no clear favorite here, and a tough battle is expected in the second leg. A bet on total Over 2.5 goals seems reasonable.
