Monaco vs Metz – Ligue 1: Monaco that has been disappointing on the Champions League and that has been making a league campaign with ups & downs
Host Metz at their stadium.
This has all the ingredients to be an interesting match because Metz is on their best moment of form of the season and Monaco, despite everything, are still the Champions and count with good players in their roster.
The team from the Principality is on the fight for 2nd place with Lyon and Marseille, with any slip-up maybe being decisive at this time of the season.
Monaco is focused in the Ligue 1 and they won’t rest any players. Knowing that Lyon faces PSG this round, Monaco only has to win to get another 3 points and put pressure on their rival.
Monaco counts with an attacking front of great quality, with the highlight obviously being Radamel Falcao.
Monaco hasn’t lost for 7 matches in Ligue 1 and it is when they play at home that they get their best results.
Metz is in last place, but they haven’t lost for 5 matches and have been making a good recovery to get closer to the clubs that are fighting to avoid relegation from the Ligue 1.
However, for this match, Metz has several players in doubt.
Even if the remaining ones come into this match very motivated, the team will face one of the best teams in the league, which means they are no easy task.
On their 1st meeting, Monaco won 1-0 at Metz, but last season this match finished 5-0 in favour of Monaco.
Monaco vs Metz – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This year I don’t believe it will be such an unbalanced score line, but the favouritism will be Monaco’s once again and I believe they will win relatively easily.
Metz is on a good moment of form but the absences that they might present in this match can impact them negatively.
On the other hand, Monaco is a very strong team at home and won’t make any rotation for this match.
