Metz vs Brest - 17/05/2019 Preview

Metz will face Brest at Stade Municipal Saint-Symphorien, in Metz, in French Ligue 2 38th Round. Metz against Brest is always the match with big interest after their previous matches in French Ligue 2. For both teams, this match does not solve anything, since both have already taken the first 2 places and next year they will play in Ligue 1. In this match, we can enjoy the game of the two best teams of the League. Review our thoughts on this match here below.

 

Metz

Metz already confirmed as a Champions of French Ligue 2. They had a very great season and only 5 lost matches in 37 after losing against Nancy last weekend. Last year they were relegated to lower league, however, they made a comeback second year, what is a really great performance. Ex-Saint Ettiene, Nice, Rennes and Lille manager Frédéric Antonetti found the best way to use young and talented players achieving season’s goals. The average team age is 25 years.

23 years old Habib Diallo scored this season already 25 goals, he became best squad striker and second-best of Ligue 2. Second best goalscorer in the Metz is even younger, 20 years old Senegalian Ibrahima Niane with 10 goals. Last transfer window they made several new signings, so we expect big work in the summer transfer window before new 2019/20 season starts. Before this game there are no injuries and suspension, so they can probably play with the main squad, but can give chances to young and prospective players to gain some experience.

 

Brest

Stade Brest 29 is already qualified to the French Ligue 1 and next season they will play again best French clubs. After 5 seasons in the second best French league, they finally achieved the season’s goal. They showed really great performance this season and finished at second place in Ligue 2. Brest is undefeated already in 30 of their last 33 games in French second league. Moreover, very likely that Brest will finish the league as a top scoring team with 64 this season.

The biggest impact made Gaetan Charbonnier scoring 27 goals and 7 assists. All main squad players are fit and ready to play against league Champions.

 

H2H

This season Brest and Metz played one game in Brest, at Stade Francis-Le Blé. That time much stronger and more dangerous was Metz, as a result, they won this game by 0:1 result. We can say that this result was decisive who will take champions Title. Next time these teams will play in Ligue 1 and we will see even more interesting and tough games.
