Metz Recap Week 14

Week highlights

Marseille continues to carry the burden of winning more matches as an aggressive Paris Saint Germain closes in.

 

With its defeat in Le Classique, Marseille failed to extend their lead against their closest rival. Such scenario compels them to win each and every match since PSG is eager to steal the spotlight from them.

 

Last week, Marseille pulled off a massive win against Bordeaux, where they nailed three (3) goals, whilst their opponent could only respond with one (1).

 

However, the sports betting favorite, PSG also snatched a victory. Pitted against the newly promoted, Metz, the club nailed three (3) goals as well. They had a hard time though as a resilient Metz clinched two (2) goals.

 

Considering these aspects at hand, Marseille desperately tries to hang on to a one (1) point lead as PSG remains faithful in its strong and aggressive campaign.

 

Scene-stealers

Metz’s Modibo Maiga showed how clinical he was in taking penalties. He definitely gave PSG a scare. Unfortunately, it was the Parisiens, which secured the upper-hand. What a nice try though!

 

The blunders

For the third time, Monaco was forced to settle for a stalemate. Last season’s title contender is nowhere to be found in this season’s title race.

 

What to expect

Marseille and PSG’s rivalry is expected to become more intense. Which of the two will crack down first?
