Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Midweek fixture at Stade de la Mosson pits together Montpellier and Metz, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the second half of the season. Montpellier are eyeing a place in European competitions, while Metz are determined to secure the Ligue 1 survival. La Paillade failed to bounce back from a shocking Coupe de France defeat to Belfort, with the team suffering a massive defeat (0-5) at PSG at the weekend.
However, Montpellier are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and we predict that they will defeat the relegation strugglers in Wednesday’s football game. It has to be noted, though, that first-choice goalkeeper Dimitry Bertaud is sidelined through suspension. Les Grenats are on a three-game winning run in the national championship, but Montpellier are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the visitors than their previous rivals.
