Montpellier vs Metz French Ligue 1 Prediction by LeagueLane

Montpellier vs Metz
French Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 5th February 2020
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.

Montpellier will want to put their last game out of their heads as they lost 5-0 against PSG. A defeat seemed on the cards but to concede five goals can also damage defender’s confidence.

They will be favourites here and should get back on track against Metz. Overall form for Montpellier has been good with 3 wins from their last four and before they met PSG, they had won 3 games in a row.

The club are in 5th place with 33 points and right in the mix to finish in a European place. Home form is very good, and the club have the 3rd best record in the league having earned 25 points from 33. They have lost just two times at home this season.

Metz are in their best form of the season and have remained unbeaten for their last 5 games. They have won 3 games in a row and beat Saint Etienne 3-1 at the weekend. The club have climbed to 16th place and are 7 points now from the bottom three.

Away form is not so good with just 2 victories so far, but they did win their last away game beating Reims 1-0.

Montpellier vs Metz: Head to Head

  • The last time the teams played here Metz won 3-1.
  • In the last 5 meetings home or away Montpellier has just 1 win.
  • There is a 60% chance to see both teams to score.

Montpellier vs Metz: Prediction

Montpellier will need to be on the ball here, but we think Metz can give them plenty of problems.

Backing Metz to win could be tricky as this could well end up as a draw but because they won’t be favourites to win, they should be very good value on the handicap. The club have been in good form and Montpellier have trouble in beating them.

Also, we will back Metz striker Habib Diallo to continue his fantastic form in front of goal and to score another one here.

Montpellier vs Metz: Bet Tips:

  • Metz to beat Montpellier with a +1 Handicap at 2.10 (11/10)
  • Anytime goalscorer: Habib Diallo (Metz) at 3.00 (2/1).
