In the first round of 14th round in French Ligue 1, Metz host actual champion PSG.
Home team is playing very solid this season and after 13 rounds they are standing at the 9th position with 18 points.
Metz is typical home team. Their away performance is terrible (1-1-5), but at home they are playing very good where they are still without defeat (4-2-0).
Interesting fact about Metz is that they scored 13 goals this season and 12 goals they scored at home ground.
For this match they don’t have some important absences. Good news are that defender Gaëtan Bussman (11/1 d), Romain Rocchi (3/0 m) and Venezuelan striker and their top scorer Juan Falcon (8/4 f) are all back in team and will be available.
PSG is the main candidate for the title, they have only one point less than current leader Marseille and they will going to take all three points in this match.
The visitors have the most matches in Ligue 1 which had been finished without winner (6 ties), but they improved their performance and managed to win their last six matches, including the games in UEFA Champions League.
Team from Paris will be without few important players such as David Luiz (9/0 d), S. Aurier (7/0 d), Verratti (12/0 m), Lucas (13/6 m) and Bahebeck (8/2 f), so this could be a chance for home team to make something in this match.
Good news for PSG is that Zlatan Ibrahimovic (6/5 f) has been back in training and he could be in the starting eleven.
As I wrote above, home side is playing very good at home where they scored almost all goals this season. They only failed to score in one of their six home matches this season.
On the other side, PSG have the great solutions in attack and Metz defenders will have to their best in order to save their net.
However, the visitors are favorite to win this one, but “Both teams to score” seems like a good betting option. It’s a little risky bet, but the odds for that bet game are very good.
