Nice has proven its superiority lately. They are winless in their last seven matches, winning three and drawing four. This shows that the team is in good form, especially considering that they have played strong teams like PSG and Monaco and come out victorious or drawn. In addition, Nice is very reliable defensively, conceding only 4 goals in 7 matches, which is impressive. Their xG (expected goals) stats also highlight their effectiveness in front of goal.
Metz, on the contrary, has been going through difficult times lately: in the last seven matches the team won only 2 victories. Recent matches indicate a leaky defense: 13 goals were conceded in the same period. Diving deeper into the stats, xG and possession in recent matches suggest the team is struggling to create quality chances and often dominates midfield.
As for head-to-head matches, these teams look equal in the last two meetings: 2 wins for Metz, 1 for Nice and 1 draw. However, given the current form of both teams, Nice appear to have the advantage. Additional indicators such as number of shots on goal, number of shots on target and percentage of possession show that Nice have better possession and control of the game.
Nice have been in great form lately. They are unbeaten in their last seven matches, winning against formidable teams and achieving draws. Statistics from recent matches indicate that the team is effective in front of goal and reliable in defense. xG (expected goals) statistics also indicate that the team converts its chances most often. Metz, on the other hand, are going through a turbulent period, with just two wins in their last seven matches. Metz showed vulnerability defensively, conceding 13 goals during this time. Although past meetings between these teams have been close, current form and additional metrics such as shots on target and possession percentage tip the scales in Nice's favour.
The recent performances of both teams and their head-to-head matches suggest that the games will not often be full of goals. Nice, showing solid defensive form, conceded just four times in seven matches. Although Metz have defensive issues, the nature of the head-to-head clashes between these teams suggests the game will be tighter and possibly tighter. Given Nice's style of play and her ability to control the tempo of the game, we can assume that the game will go without a flurry of goals. The coefficient for this is slightly higher, which indicates a favorable risk-reward ratio.
The reason this bet is the best is due to the favorable odds combined with the expected flow of the game. The nature of the match, the styles of both teams and their recent rivalries indicate that there will be fewer goals in the match. The 1.88 ratio provides a good balance between risk and potential reward.
