Red Star and Metz meet at Stade Pierre Brisson, in a match for the 35 th round of the Liga 2. Metz won at home by (2-0) the last time they met in this edition of the league, in 04- 12-2018. The record of direct confrontations of the last 3 years is favorable to the visiting team, which in the last 5 matches won 3 and lost 2. Particular attention is required for the home / away condition, since both teams present significantly different results at home and outside.
After 6 wins, 9 draws and 19 losses, the home team is currently in the 20th position, with 27 points won. In their last match, they lost with Troyes out by (2-0), after in the previous match they tied for (1-1) at home, in a match against Nancy.

In the last 17 home matches for this competition there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 5 of their 14 goals between minutes (76′-90 ‘).
The Red Star campaign is very bad, it is in the last position of the championship and that is why it is fighting against the descent. The weak performance that has been taking place in the field is the main culprit of being in this situation. Only a miracle will save you from the descent of division, that is, you need to defeat all your games and still wait for favorable parallel results. That being the case, wait at least to do your part and that means you want to add the three points. In this match, Edson Seidou will be absent from the team, for being in the medical department.
After 21 wins, 9 draws and 4 losses, the away team is currently in the 1 st position, with 72 points won. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Gazélec Ajaccio, by (0-2).

No doubt the Metz has been doing a great campaign in the French second division. Currently leading the championship, is in the promotion area and shows quality football, unlike most clubs. The expectation is to stay that way until the end of the season, because it hopes to return to the national elite, so regularity is a key element to achieve it. We know the quality of the visitors and it will not be surprising if they win, otherwise, they will enter the field just to conquer the three points. You can confirm your return to the first division in the current round and there are several possibilities for that to happen. In this match the best players that are available will go to the field.
