Nantes vs Metz: Prediction and Betting Tips

14:00, Aug 15 2021
Nantes vs Metz prediction for Sunday’s Ligue 1 matchday two clash at Stade de la Beaujoire in Nantes. After winning one point from their opening match in Monaco, Nantes will host Metz who also drew with champions Lille at home. Read on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Nantes hoping to build on their one point from the first round

Nantes started their 2021-21 Ligue 1 campaign with a well-earned point after Defender Castelletto equalized before halftime. Having said that, a good omen lies with the fact that the last two times they’ve drawn the opening game of a new L1 campaign, they’ve gone on to win their next game by a 2-1 scoreline.

Coach Antoine Kombouaré has impressively breathed new life into this Nantes team since his appointment in February. The former PSG manager has collected 1.46 points on average per L1 game to date. Moreover, Kombouare guided the hosts to a win over Toulouse in last campaign’s relegation play-off. Here though, the H2H history could be worrying for Nantes fans. Les Canaris’ have won just one of their last ten L1 H2Hs against Metz (D6, L3).

Nantes Key Points

  • Nantes won two and lost four of their six pre-season matches
  • The Canaris have an average of 4.3 shots on goal in their matches
  • BTTS happened in Nante’s six of last ten matches in Ligue 1

Metz to make up for their two points lost 

A 96th-minute goal by reigning Ligue 1 champions Lille was enough to deprive Metz of a winning start. That result means they’ve won only once across their last 12 top-flight games (D4, L7). Furthermore, Metz registered that only win against a Dijon side who finished last and got relegated last season.

The Maroons have not won in their opening match of the last seven Ligue 1 seasons (D2, L5) However, Metz will be pinning their hopes on coach Frédéric Antonetti.  The Frenchman has lost just two of 12 Ligue 1 H2Hs vs Nantes’ Antoine Kombouaré (W7, D3, L2). Those matches have usually been tight affairs, with only two of those settled by a margin of over 1.5 goals.

Metz Key Points

  • Metz have won four of their six pre-season friendlies
  • Les Grenats have scored in five of their last ten Ligue 1 matches
  • BTTS happened in five of Metz’s last ten matches

Nantes vs Metz Prediction

The aim of both teams from this match is to finish with points. Nantes had a good performance against Monaco in Monte Carlo and came back with a point. Also, Metz were a minute away from registering a big upset in the opening round.

All the above shows that Nantes and Metz have prepared very well for the season. Moreover, they don’t want to lose this match and stay away from the leading positions so early in the season.

The odds for any team’s win are quite high at Vbet with 2.38 for Nantes and 3.23 for Metz. The double chance and total goals scored combo at Vbet has some very profitable bets and we will look into them.
