Marseille vs Metz: Ligue 1 2023/24 Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

Amid increasing discontent from fans, Marseille seeks to break a dismal four-game winless streak as they face crisis-ridden Metz at the Orange Velodrome in Friday’s Ligue 1 match. Marseille’s turbulent season hit another setback with a 1-0 loss to Lyon in their last outing, while Metz’s struggles continued with a 2-1 defeat at home against Lorient.

After narrowly defeating Thionville Lusitanos in the Coupe de France, Marseille’s fortunes have dwindled in 2024. Their lone victory this year was sandwiched between draws against Strasbourg and Monaco, and a penalty shootout loss to Rennes in the Coupe de France. Marseille suffered a toothless defeat against Lyon, failing to trouble the opposing goalkeeper. This defeat ended their eight-game unbeaten run in Ligue 1, leaving them in eighth place, six points adrift of the Champions League spot. Marseille’s leadership met with supporters’ groups, with warnings of potential unrest if they fail to secure victory against Metz, especially considering their unbeaten home record in Ligue 1 this season.

Metz suffered their sixth home defeat of the season against Lorient in gameweek 20, extending their losing streak to eight games across all competitions. Despite a quick response from Didier Lamkel Ze after Mohamed Bamba’s opener for Lorient, a second-half goal from Panos Katseris sealed Metz’s defeat. Currently 16th in the league, they’re only ahead of Lorient on goal difference and one point clear of bottom-placed Clermont. Throughout their eight-game losing streak, Metz’s offense has struggled, scoring only three goals in total. While they managed to hold Marseille to a 2-2 draw in August, they haven’t won at the Velodrome since the 2004-05 season.
