Metz vs AS Monaco Prediction and Betting Preview 30 Aug 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-1
Metz vs AS Monaco PredictionHaving failed to make their 2020/2021 Ligue 1 season bow last weekend, Metz will be seeking victory at the first attempt against AS Monaco this Sunday at the Stade Saint-Symphorien. Both set of players will be itching to get on the pitch to get some minutes under the belt.
Match status: 2020/21 Ligue 1 - Matchweek 2
Kick-off:
Venue: Stade Municipal Saint-Symphorien (Metz)
Following the curtailment of the previous campaign, Metz finished 15th on the standings with a measly 34 points from 28 games. Indeed, they will be thankful for FFP’s decision to bring the season to an abrupt end as it helped them escape relegation.

Props to Vincent Hognon for the amazing work he has put in at Metz since arriving at the club. He has been simply faultless, helping Les Grenats to retain their Ligue 1 status last time out. The board will be hoping for greater success under the French gaffer this term.

Taking on a tricky Monaco side this weekend, the Maroons will need to put their best foot forward to stand any chances of clinching a win. In truth, they are very unlikely to salvage anything from this fixture, given the stature of the opposition in question.

Metz vs AS Monaco Team News

Even though Metz struggled throughout last season, they ended their campaign on a high. From their last 11 games, they suffered defeat just twice – those losses coming against tough oppositions like Bordeaux and Lyon.

Their strong end to the season did not go unnoticed by the media as Les Grenats were applauded for their exploits. If the season had continued to completion, there is every possibility that Metz could have finished higher on the standings.

In fact, their marked their last league fixture with a pretty comfortable 2-1 win over Nimes, thanks to goals from John Boye and Opa Nguette. Impressively, Hognon’s men were utterly ruthless throughout the course of the off-season.

They were in tip-top form, winning each of their last three pre-season friendlies, including a narrow 3-2 win over Strasbourg and another 1-0 win over Belgian Pro League giants KV Mechelen. Heading into the new season on the back of these results, Metz will be absolutely buzzing.

Meanwhile, AS Monaco had a season to forget last time out, finishing ninth on the standings, just a point clear of the bottom-half. Following their slow start to the season, they replaced long-serving manager Leonardo Jardim with Roberto Moreno.

Ahead of this season, the board parted ways with Moreno as they reached a mutual conclusion that the Spanish gaffer wasn’t the one to take them forward. Booting him out of the club, Les Monegasques opted to appoint Bayern Munich-reject Niko Kovac as head coach moving forward.

The Croatian marked his first competitive game in charge of Monaco with a 2-2 draw against Reims in a frantic game at the Stade Louis II. Trailing by two goals at the interval, Les Monegasques rallied around after the restart, registering two goals to salvage an important point.

Monaco showed great character to complete such comeback, even when all hope seemed lost. Now against Metz, ASM will be desperate for their first win of the season.
