Metz plunges back against Nice
Continuation of the 22th day Sunday, from 1 p.m., with the reception of Nice by FC Metz. The team in form at the moment travels to Lorraine with the intention of bringing back a fourth victory in a row, while the Messins extricated themselves from the red zone by winning in Reims, last weekend. The Lorrainers remain very diminished by the CAN (Oukidja, Alakouch, Bronn, Kouyaté, Boulaya, Maïga, PM Sarr), but also injured (Cabit, Centonze, Jemerson, Udol, N’Doram, De Préville). The Niçois, for their part, should be able to count on Atal and Lémina, who returned from CAN earlier than expected.
Like every Sunday, four meetings are scheduled at 3 p.m.: Bordeaux – Strasbourg, Clermont – Rennes, Nantes – Lorient and Angers – Troyes. Four teams that play the maintenance, against four teams more comfortable, even very ambitious.

Clermont remains for its part very handicapped by the absences of Bayo and Allevinha, both at the CAN. Nantes is complete, apart from its Africans (Coulibaly, Simon, Ch. Traoré, Castelletto).
Montpellier disarmed against Monaco
At 5 p.m., Montpellier, which remains on two defeats in a row (with an expulsion each time), will try to revive against Monaco. But it will be without Savanier, expelled in the week and who received a three-game suspension. In Monaco, Pelé, Badiashile, Diatta, Sidibé and Boadu. Marcelin and Golovin are uncertain.
The 22th Ligue 1 day will end with the meeting between PSG and Reims. The Rémois are diminished by the absences of Konan, Cassama, Doumbia, EB Touré (CAN), but also, Berisha, Matusiwa, Munetsi, Zeneli (injured).
In Paris, a decision had to be made at the last moment for Mbappé (adductors), while Messi should make his return. Hakimi, Diallo and Gueye are at CAN, while Neymar, Wijnaldum and Letellier are still injured.
