Relegated Metz ready to start relaunch at Brest

New manager aiming for perfect start to campaign

Frederic Antonetti takes over in the Metz dugout
1 of 1

Ligue 2
7.45pm Monday

Metz have made a lot of changes since last season's dismal relegation from Ligue 1 and they can start the new campaign with a victory over Brest in Brittany.

Over the last seven seasons Metz have experienced three relegations and three promotions and they are hoping to bounce back at the first attempt.

However, there were plenty of problems to address after their 2017-18 top-flight campaign, which finished with them propping up the table, 12 points adrift of safety.

There has been a change in the dugout with vastly experienced manager Frederic Antonetti replacing Frederic Hantz.

Antonetti is looking to rebuild his reputation after parting company with Lille in November 2016 but had previously done excellent work with Bastia, St Etienne, Nice and Rennes.

He has had to cope with the loss of some key players, including last season's 15-goal top scorer Nolan Roux, who has moved to Ligue 1 side Guingamp.

But Antonetti has reshaped the squad with nine permanent signings and two loans and can utilise Senegalese striker Habib Diallo, who has returned after a season-long loan with Brest in Ligue 2.

Diallo was Brest's top scorer last term with nine league goals, helping them to fifth place, and does not appear to have been adequately replaced.

Brest have also lost promising 20-year-old midfielder Ibrahima Sissoko to Strasbourg and look slightly weaker than they were 12 months ago.

The Brittany outfit have been consistent in their two seasons under head coach Jean-Marc Furlan, who had previously won three promotions over two spells with Troyes.

Furlan will be looking to add another promotion to his CV but Metz are better equipped to go up and look value to chalk up three points in their opening match of the season.
