METZ VS LILLE.
After a heartbreaking Coupe de France defeat on penalties away at title-challenging Monaco in midweek, Metz host league leaders Lille this weekend, hoping for more luck against one of Ligue 1's top sides. Digbo Maiga ballooned his effort high and wide, meaning Frederic Antonetti's men were empty-handed in their last-16 clash.
Lille, by contrast, lost in the same round to defending champions PSG last month and have more important matters: protecting their slender three-point gap after a surprise 1-0 win over yours truly at the weekend.
Prediction:Lille to win.
FULHAM VS WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS.
Two sides struggling for form come face-to-face at the Cottage this weekend as Fulham entertain Wolves in the Premier League.
3 points short of safety, Fulham have now lost 4 of their last 5 league fixtures having slipped to defeat at Aston Villa this past Sunday, despite leading for much of the match.
Still, with visiting Wolves having failed to win any of their last 5 PL matches (3 losses, 2 draws), the hosts must see this as a big opportunity to boost their survival hopes despite winning just 1 of their last 12 at the Cottage.
With both struggling in front of goal this season, a low-scoring contest is expected, particularly as each of the last 5 meetings between these two sides finished with under 2.5 goals scored.
Prediction:Both teams to score.
