Metz vs Montpellier: Prediction
Metz are in form and Montpellier are not however Montpellier like coming to this ground. But it is hard to completely ignore what Metz have achieved and if they keep up this form they will give themselves a chance to play in Europe next season.
At the same time Montpellier have quality players and their losing run will end. The away side have a good value price to back them for the win, and it is a risk but we will back them to end their poor run.
Also we will back Gaetan Laborde to get a goal for the away side, he is always a menace in the penalty area and could be very active and again he is a good price to score anytime.
Metz vs Montpellier Bet Tips:

Anytime goalscorer: Gaetan Laborde of Montpellier at 2.75 (7/4).
