Goal Statistics

Montpellier's fans will be hoping for goals on Sunday afternoon, not least because Metz have conceded in each of their last 11 Ligue 1 games. A PG of 1.5 for Michel Der Zakarian's side suggests that run should continue.

A truly awful PG of just 0.9 should cause concerns for Metz fans, as should a 8 Ligue 1 games run in which they have failed to score more than 1 goal.
