Monaco vs Metz
Coupe de France
Date: Tuesday, 6 April 2021
Kick-off at 16:45 UK/ 17:45 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II.
The Monegasques are one of the best teams in the French top flight. In fact, barring PSG, and Lille, they easily have been the best of the rest this season.
In fact, they even have a shot at the title, since they are lagging by just four points behind toppers Lille, with seven match-days remaining in the Ligue 1. They also do have the confidence of having thwarted PSG to the title in the 2016-17 season.
Meanwhile, the Maroons are placed ninth in the Ligue 1 table at the moment, and they need a surplus of at least seven points from the next seven match-days to even make it to the Europa Conference League.
On top of this pressure, they have also been going through a struggling stretch lately, and have been conceding goals in plenty in the process. Moreover, they have a worrying h2h record against this opponent over the years too.
By the looks of things, expect Monaco to have the upper hand this Tuesday at home, in this Round of 16 match-up.

Monaco vs Metz Prediction
The Monegasques recorded a 4-0 win just two days before against this same rival, and that has got to be a major confidence-boost for them.
On top of that, they were unbeaten in 17 of their past 18 overall match-ups, and of these 13 were wins. Note that during this stretch, they had even gone on an eight-fixture winning run.
Moreover, they have also lost at home just once since January of 2020, and had scored two or more goals in ten of their former twelve appearances at this stadium.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in four of their last five overall games, and they had conceded a total of nine goals in their last three fixtures.
Finally, Kovac’s men also have a terrific h2h record against this foe over the years.
Considering these observations, expect Monaco to emerge victorious this Tuesday. Also count on them to score goals in plenty in the process.
