Les Grenats have been in great shape early in the new season and connected a nine-game winning streak across competitions. However, they’ve seen a narrow 2-1 loss at Paris and struggled to bounce back quickly, as Le Havre snatched a 0-1 win in Metz with a single goal from Zinedine Ferhat. Frederic Antonetti now has to find a cure and do so quickly, as a trip to Stade Auguste-Bonal should be another tough challenge.

Sochaux sit in the mid-table with ten points to their name and no hot streak to boast either, only ending a streak of two consecutive losses with a goalless draw at rock-bottomed Nancy. They’ve suffered narrow losses to Lens and Orleans beforehand, proving themselves as a tough nut to crack at this ground but failing to really capitalize on it – only earning two wins in five games across competitions.

Sochaux vs Metz: Head-to-head

  • The sides last met in 2015/16 and Metz bagged narrow wins on both occasions.
  • These were the sides’ only two clashes in the last ten years, as Sochaux look for their first win in over ten years.
  • We’ve seen just five goals in the sides’ last four head-to-head clashes, which also promises a narrow contest here.

Sochaux vs Metz: Prediction

We will now back Metz to turn this one their way too and snatch all three points at 2.25. Sochaux have proven themselves as a very tough side to score against but we do feel the visitors will be able to find the net and finally earn a return to the great streak we’ve seen until mid-September.

We do believe slim margins will make all the difference too and with that in mind, we don’t see many goals and Under 2.5 goals FT comes off as a generous banker bet at 1.72. Sochaux have seen two or fewer goals in eight of their last eight outings and this does feel like further evidence for such a bet.

Sochaux vs Metz: Bet Tips

  • Away win @ 2.25
  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.72.
