Metz vs AS Monaco Preview

Metz vs AS Monaco

Competition – France Ligue 1

Stadium – Stade Saint-Symphorien

Date: 30th August 2020

Kick-off time – 14:00 GMT

Metz will launch their Ligue 1 campaign with this game against Monaco while the municipality side will look to get their first win of the campaign after being held to a 2-2 draw by Reims in their season opener last time out.

Nico Kovac has been tasked with taking Monaco back to the top of the French Ligue 1 standings when this season ends and he will be keen to get his first win on the board here.

Metz will be hoping to have a fine season in this campaign and as their start has been delayed, they will be keen to kick things off on the brightest note possible.

The home side has been in fine form in pre-season games, winning three of their last four and losing just one of their seven games in preparation for the new season.

Monaco didn’t have the best of pre-seasons as they won just two of their last four games in preparation for the new season.

Kovac knows that he is managing an underachieving side and he will want to prove that his struggles at Bayern Munich don’t really define his career as a manager.

Metz have enjoyed the upper hand in recent clashes between these teams as they won both clashes last season and Monaco will be keen end that run in this game.

Bookmakers have priced Monaco up as slight favourites to come out on top in this game however the odds are close and Metz are priced up competitively on home soil.
