After going three games without a loss, Metz lost their last game in the French first division. Metz will be looking to bounce back when they host Marseille at the Stade Saint Symphorien in the 23rd round of Ligue 1.
The hosts have been struggling in the league ever since the start of the season. Metz have spent the majority of the season in or around the relegation zone. The team have put in some effort in the last few games to change that. They have gone three games in a row without a loss before their last game in Ligue 1. The team have collected a total of 5 points from a possible 15 in their last 5 league games. Their last match was against Angers SCO away from home where they lost 2-1.
Metz are currently sitting in the 19th place in the French league table with 21 points. They have won 6 games, drew in 5 and lost in 10. They scored 21 goals and conceded 38 since the start of the season.
The visitors are in a much more comfortable situation. Marseille are 12 ahead of the hosts in the league table. However, they are not in their best form recently according to their standards. The team have collected 9 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last game in Ligue 1 was against Montpellier at home where they won 5-1.
Marseille are currently sitting in the 6th place in the league table with 33 points from 9 wins, 6 draws and 7 losses. They have scored 29 goals and conceded 27 since the start of the season.
