Note: The odds for Metz vs Marseille may change before match day. Please confirm with Betfred for updated odds before placing your bet.

Marseille anticipates victory

Marseille needs points in their last game of the season to secure a place in Europa League next season. The visitors’ sits 5th on the Ligue 1 table with only three above Lens. And while they are assured of finishing fifth even with a loss, a strong ending this season should inspire the Marseille going into a new season. The visitors come into this fixture with only two losses in the last ten games and winning against Metz, which has only one victory, two draws and seven losses in the last ten games, should be easy for Jorge Sampaoli and his squad.

Both Teams to Score

While our first pick backs Marseille to win on Sunday, getting a clean sheet should be tricky for the visitors. Marseille has failed to keep a clean sheet in all their last four away games, conceding a total of eight goals, averaging two goals conceded in every away game. On the other hand, we expect Marseille to score against Metz, a team that seems to struggle defensively and with little to fight for.

More than Two Goals at Fulltime

Punditfeed also predicts more than two goals in this game. The basis for this prediction is that Metz defence is terrible making the hosts a vulnerable target in this fixture. On the other hand, Marseille has a defence that you cannot rely on 100%, which is why backing both sides to score and more than three games in this fixture are plausible options.

Match Preview: Marseille looking to strengthen their fifth position

Finishing fifth keeps Marseille in Europa League next season. But can they get the victory against Metz after failing to do so in the reverse fixture?

Metz

Metz has a horrible defence coming into this game. The hosts have lost four of their last six games by conceding an average of two goals per match. Another concern for the hosts is that they have lost all their last four home games by an average of three goals per game. With such a weak defence, it would be difficult for Frederic Antonetti to get victory on Sunday 23rd May 2021.

Marseille

Marseille has registered some excellent performances in recent games. With in-form players such as Florian Thauvin, Dimitri Payet, Arkadiusz Milik and Boubacar Kamara, we expect a highly offensive approach from the visitors who hope to clock more than sixty points this season.
