With only one loss in their last five league games, Metz will be looking to continue their good run of form when they host Dijon at the Stade Saint Symphorien in the 24th round of the French Ligue 1.
Metz Looking To Escape Relegation
The hosts have collected a total of 8 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Ligue 1. Their last league match was against Olympique de Marseille at home where they won 1-0.
Metz are currently sitting in the 17th place in the league table. They have 24 points from 7 wins, 5 draws and 10 losses. The team scored 22 goals and conceded 38 since the start of the season.
Renaud Cohade returns after suspension; this should mean a return to a 4-2-3-1 for Les Grenats. Benoit Assou-Ekotto played well in place of the veteran Frank Signorino at the weekend and the former Spurs man should keep his place at left back.
The Visitors To Bounce Back
The visitors have collected a total of 8 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Ligue 1. Their last league match was against Paris Saint-Germain at home where they lost 3-1.
Dijon are currently sitting in the 16th place in the league table. They have 24 points from 5 wins, 9 draws and 9 losses. They have scored 31 goals and conceded 35 since the start of the season.
Frédéric Sammaritano is the team’s only absentee. Yunis Abdelhamid could replace captain Cédric Varrault at centre back. Despite losing to Paris Saint-Germain at the weekend, Dijon played well; it would be a surprise to see the team make wholesale changes.
Head To Head
Metz have won 1 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September 2016 when the final score was 0 – 0.
