Metz and Montpellier take on each other at Stade Municipal Saint-Symphorien in what is expected to be a close encounter. Les Grenats have been in a splendid form of late, with the team beating the likes of Lyon, Nantes, and Brest in the previous three league fixtures. Metz aim to keep their Europa League hopes alive, and they should take advantage of Montpellier’s current form.
La Paillade, on the other hand, are on a three-game losing run in the French top flight, with the team obviously struggling at the back. Since Metz are high on confidence ahead of the midweek clash, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Switzerland international Omlin is banned for the match, while both Delort and Mollet are out of contention with injuries. In the first half of the season Metz recorded a routine 2-0 win at Montpellier.
Reims will be looking to build on back-to-back wins over Brest and Strasbourg when they host Angers at their Stade Auguste-Delaune on Matchday 23. Reims have been impressive at the back of late, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Wednesday’s football game. All Hornby, Munetsi, and Zeneli are likely to miss the match with injuries. Les Scoistes, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Bordeaux, with the team beating Nimes 3-1 in their last league match.
Angers have been struggling on the travels of late, and given Reims’ fine form in 2021, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home team. Both Alioui and Cabot are quarantined, while Bahoken and Ebosse are sidelined through injuries. Defender Angelo Fulgini is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
