Montpellier vs Metz
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 16th December 2020
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).
At the weekend Montpellier pulled off a very important result as they beat Lens 3-2 away from home. It was good for the club because they had lost their previous match and means that they have bounced back from defeat quickly.
The victory which was Montpellier’s 8th of the season means they are in 5th place and just three points from the top in a league that is very close this season.
Overall Montpellier have been in very good form and have won 4 of their last five game and at home they have won 4 times however recent form has not been good with 3 defeats in the last four games at Stade de la Mosson.
Metz keep falling down the league and that is because they haven’t secured a win since the beginning of November. Last weekend they could only draw away to Strasbourg with that match finishing 2-2.
But overall form has not been good for Metz who come into this match in 13th place and have earned just 3 points from their last 15. Metz have also won just 1 game away from home so far.
Montpellier vs Metz: Head to Head
- Last season this game finished 1-1.
- Metz last won away to Montpellier in 2017 when they beat them 3-1.
- Montpellier have not won at home to Metz since 2014.
Montpellier vs Metz: Prediction
Montpellier have the better form but have had troubles at home lately, though one would expect that to end soon.
Metz have a good record over Montpellier and this could spur the players on to improve their game. Metz have a good side, but they have hit a bad patch of form and will be looking to start picking up points.
Quite rightly Montpellier are the favourites to win this duel but we are tempted to back the double chance on Metz who could spring a surprise.
Metz have scored at least one goal away to Montpellier in their last 3 visits and so the price of 1.62 for them to score again looks like decent value.
Montpellier vs Metz Bet Tips:
Double Chance: Metz win or a draw at 2.10 (11/10)
Metz to score a goal at 1.62 (8/13).
