Metz aims to survive in League 1 this season. Several players left the club, and the newcomers need to step up and show their qualities from the first match. They finished 15th last season, and the hosts were not efficient. They played a few friendly games and booked reasonably good results. Metz has a lot of young players who play great. Stefan Mitrović is a great defensive player, the Serbian international commands the defense, he is experienced and means a lot to the team. Adrien Thomasson is in great shape, has a precise shot, plays equally in both directions, and he is an exciting player. Ibrahima Sissoko found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. Ibrahima Niane is the best player of the team, he is strong, he moves excellent, and a lot of clubs are standing in a row for his signing.
Monaco didn’t have a successful campaign last season. They finished in ninth place, the visitors were pretty efficient, but their defense should have been a bit tighter. This season, the ambitions are to play attractive football, score as many goals as possible, and challenge one of the continental qualification spots. In the first round, they played 2: 2, they had their chances but failed to convert them into goals. Monaco has a strong defensive line, Benoit Badiashile and Axel Disasi are experienced and perform all the tasks required of them. Aleksandr Golovin shows his talent, he has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Wissam Ben Yedder is a great striker, he has the experience, and is expected to score as many goals as possible this season. He is a great dribbler, and his greatest virtue is speed.
