Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Montpellier will be looking to build on a 3-2 win over Lens when they take on Metz in a midweek fixture. La Paillade continue to impress in the 2020/21 Ligue 1 campaign, and it is no wonder they are seen as favourites to win Wednesday’s clash. Montpellier are eyeing their fifth home win of the season, and you should bear in mind that boss Der Zakarian can count on key players for the match.
Metz, on the other hand, have been struggling at the back of late, with the team conceding seven goals in total in the previous three league fixtures. Metz are low on confidence ahead of the trip to Montpellier, and given La Paillade’s current form, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. The likes of Cabit, N’Doram, Niane, Pajot, Udol, and Vagner have all been struggling with injuries in the away team.
