Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Metz and Saint-Etienne go head to head at Stade Saint-Symphorien on day 8 of the new Ligue 1 campaign. Les Grenats made a slow start to the season, with the team suffering a loss in each of their first three league fixtures, but they have been showing signs of improvement of late. Metz are undefeated in the last four league games, which is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Saint-Etienne.
Ivory Coast midfielder Habib Maiga returns from suspension for the hosts. Les Verts, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form. St Etienne are on a three-game losing run in the French top flight, and given Metz’s current form, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the home side. Wahbi Khazri returns from suspension for the visitors, as well as defender Timothee Kolodziejczak.
