Odds: Metz 18/1, Draw 31/4, PSG 11/100

Metz and PSG are at opposite ends of the Ligue 1 table but past head-to-head meetings at Stade Saint-Symphorien suggest this may be more competitive than many pundits are predicting.
PSG only prevailed 3-2 here in April thanks to a stoppage-time winner and it was the same scoreline on their previous visit in November 2014.
For those who like coincidence wagers, we’re including 22/1 for a repeat result on Friday night in our Metz vs PSG betting predictions.
A Look At Metz’s Betting Odds
Metz did well to finish seven points clear of the relegation zone in 14th place on their return to France’s top flight last term, but the loss of star winger Ismaila Sarr to Rennes was a huge blow.
Starting off the current campaign with four straight defeats, and only one goal scored, has seen them cut to favourites for the drop this time.
However, there have been some encouraging signs on home turf, with the scores level at 1-1 against Guingamp until conceding two late goals and Monaco only obliging 1-0 here after a 78th-minute Falcao strike.
Experienced front man Nolan Roux was always good for goals during his time at Lille and St-Etienne and 9/2 he nets at any time takes the eye from the Metz vs PSG odds.
A Look At Paris Saint-Germain’s Betting Odds
PSG have left no stone unturned in their quest to snatch back the Ligue 1 title from Monaco, with a late swoop for Kylian Mbappe adding to earlier coups in recruiting Neymar and Dani Alves.
An injury to Angel Di Maria while on World Cup duty with Argentina could allow the latest big-money recruit from Monaco to come in for his debut and the teenage sensation is 5/2 to open the scoring.
However, with next Tuesday’s Champions League trip to Celtic on the horizon, the visitors may well be a little vulnerable. That was certainly the case prior to last term’s group-stage opener against Arsenal, with PSG only drawing 1-1 at home to St-Etienne four days before hosting the Gunners. Other pre-European Cup setbacks saw them suffer defeats at Toulouse and Montpellier!
We reckon Evens for both teams to score in this game is good enough to feature in our Metz vs PSG betting tips.
