Paris Saint Germain vs Metz Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Paris Saint-Germain will be aiming to reach the Semifinals of the Coupe de la Ligue when they welcome Metz at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday night. Paris Saint-Germain registered a ridiculous 7-0 home victory over SC Bastia in the Coupe de France this weekend thanks to goals from seven different players. Thiago Silva and Adrien Rabiot gave PSG a 2-0 lead at halftime, while Christopher Nkunku, Thiago Motta, Lucas Moura, Angel Di Maria and the winter signing Julian Draxler all got on the scoresheet in the second half. On the flip side, Metz were beaten 2-0 on the road at Lens in Coupe de France at the weekend, conceding both goals in the second half. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Paris Saint-Germain Preview

Coach Unai Emery has been heavily criticised over the past three months, as PSG endured a mixed run of form in this term. Les Parisiens’ form in the first part of December 2016 was a complete mixed bag with two defeats, two draws and one win across all competitions. However, PSG ended the year with a comfortable 5-0 home victory over Lorient last time out in Ligue 1 and followed this up with another ridiculous 7-0 win over SC Bastia in Coupe de France at the weekend. They are involved in four different competitions at the moment, which includes a difficult tie against Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16. Regarding their Ligue 1 campaign, Paris Saint Germain find themselves in 3rd place in the league table with 39 points to their name after 19 rounds, just five points off the current leaders Nice. Despite their recent struggle in Ligue 1, PSG still hold the second best defensive record in the division with just 15 goals conceded in 19 league fixtures. Unai Emery’s men can count on their home form ahead of this clash as they are unbeaten in the last 24 home fixtures in all competitions, conceding just 14 goals in the process. Furthermore, PSG are undefeated in their ten home meetings with Metz in Ligue 1, winning eight and drawing twice in this term. PSG are the most successful team in Coupe de la Ligue, as they managed to win the trophy on six occasions, including three in their last three years.

Metz Preview

On the contrary, Metz’s recent form has been a complete mixed bag, as they have registered four defeats, two draws and a victory in their last seven games across all competitions. That sole triumph was actually a penalty-shootout victory over Toulouse in the previous round of the Coupe de la Ligue. They started 2017 with a 2-0 defeat on the road at Lens in Coupe de France last weekend, which means they can now only focus on their Ligue 1 and Coupe de la Ligue campaigns. Metz find themselves only in 19th position in the league table with 17 points to their name after 18 rounds, two points behind safety. However, it has to be said that Metz have been penalised by the French Football Federation with two points following the incidents from their home fixture against Lyon at the beginning of December. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Metz’s main issue throughout their Ligue 1 campaign, as they have one of the most leakiest defences in the division with 36 goals conceded in 18 rounds. Their recent away form has also been a problem as Metz have lost their last four away fixtures in all competitions, conceding 11 goals and scoring none in the process.

Paris Saint Germain Team News

Serge Aurier, Thiago Silva and Javier Pastore are all doubts, but Jese is back in training following his thigh injury.

Metz Team News

Yann Jouffre and Kevin Lejeune are both doubts, while Matthieu Udol is out with a cruciate ligament injury.

Betting Predictions and Tips

PSG are huge favourites to win here, but for more value, I’m backing them to score a couple of goals and to keep a clean sheet in this one. Metz suffered defeats in each of their last four away games in all competitions and failed to score a single goal in the process.
