Description: MET Vs MON Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Metz find themselves plying their skill set in Ligue 1 after a miraculous escape last season
For once, Metz decided to punch above their weight and show stomach for a fight in the 2019-20 edition of the Ligue 1. And little did the side know that the fight and character they managed to come up with would end up saving them from relegation last season.
Obliterated for a majority of the season to find themselves plummeting in the points tally, Metz were persistently brushing with the bottom three. However, the team managed to rake up two wins in its last fixtures in the league last season, results which took them to 15th spot and ensured the team was able to veer clear of the dreaded drop as the league curtailed midway.
Thanking their gods for the spectacular escape, Metz know they can’t afford to leave things to chance this season as well. Having pushed their luck hard last season, the club will be looking to imbed in a place a meaningful set of results this season as it embarks on its new soiree to take on AS Monaco in its first outing on Ligue 1 2020-21.
MET Vs MON Dream11 Probable Winner
As things turned hanky panky for them in the bygone encounter as AS Monaco stared at a 2-0 deficit against Reims, the club managed to restore parity and come up with a draw. It was a performance which alluded towards the side’s form in the bygone edition of the league, one where the side was a well versed attacking unit but an equalling abysmal defensive setup.
However, the attacking shot in the arm their players are capable of providing to the side should see the team pull off a win on the day.

Dream 11 Picks
Alexandre Oukidja will be inducted into our Dream 11 side as the goal-keeper for the day. Given AS Monaco’s attacking brunt and the paper thin defence Metz have at their disposal, Alexandre is going to find himself overworked on the day.
Fortunately for the side, he’s a worldclass shot stopper, someone who should pull off save after save to accrue a neat amount of save points.
Our selection of three picks from AS Monaco in this facet could have easily been questioned. Far from a well versed defence, the two goals they shipped the last time around should how easy to is to pile on the goals past the side’s backline.
However, Metz managed to come up with a meagre 27 goals last season. This is a side which has conventionally struggled to string together meaningful attacking plays, a side which could just about offer AS Monaco an elusive cleansheet.
Going in along with this narrative is the goal Axel Disasi scored for the side the last time around. He finds company in the diminutive Fode Ballo-Toure and Ruben Aguilar, two players who are more than capable of quashing Metz’s attacking plays.
Aleksandr Golovin has failed to settle into his groove but with an assist in the side’s league opening affair, this might just finally turn out to be the season where he finds his footing. Accompanying him is Aurelien Tchouameni who had an assist as well in the outing as the two moved in unison to rescue a 2-2 draw from being 2-0 down.
Gelson Martins might have failed to come up with a goal or assist to reward his endeavours but his intricate brand of football on the day makes him the third pick from the side. Metz will see us rope in the dynamic and robust Vincent Pajot and Farid Boulaya, two enigmatic names capable of ripping AS Monaco’s paper thin defence into shreds
The league’s top scorer last season with a gargantuan 28 goals to his name, Wissam Ben Yedder was always going to canter his way into our slot for the impending tie. The opposition on the other hand see us reach out for Ibrahima Niane with the home side’s striker capable of coming up with a goal scoring extravaganza.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 28 goals and 5 assists Wissam had last season see him represent our side as our captain while Golovin is the vice-captain.
