Metz - Montpellier

PICK: Metz AH +0,25 @1,85 PINNACLE 5/10

Match between 19th and 13th placed team of French Ligue 1 will start at 20:00 on Stade Saint-Symphorien in Metz. 

Metz is sitting on last sit in the league. It's true that they have one match less, but this one is against Lyon, where they won't have easy job to get points. That's why they simply need to collect points from matches like this one will be. After good result in Nice, they will probably stay in same formation, probably with Erdinc as lone striker, and Mollet, Cohade and Nguette behind him. 

Montpellier is still without they're key player Boudebouz, and now they lost another very important player in midfield - Sanson, who joined Marseille. They didn't win not even once on away matches this season and form is pretty bad recently. They have serious problems at creating chances, which is somehow normal as Boudebouz was "the one" for that.

Metz is last, but it's still not too late for them as they're only 5 points behind 13th placed Montpellier. I think that bookmakers are overestimating Montpellier in this case and I think that home pitch could play "high role" here. Without Boudebouz and Sanson, I think that Montpellier will have tough time if they won't bring anything till end of winter transfer window.

FT: 2-0
