PSG vs Metz Predictions and Betting Tips

There's action in the French Ligue 1 on Wednesday with one single game scheduled for play. Our attention for that game will be at the French Capital as PSG play hosts to FC Metz. The 5,000 fans that will be present are expected to be treated to a good game as the defending champions would be looking towards registering their first win of the season.

Thomas Tuchel and his troops will be keen to further exercise their dominance over FC Metz. The defending champions have won all competitive meetings against the two sides since the 2014/2015 season. The whole world will tune in to see if FC Metz will be able to take advantage of struggling PSG team. Will the Lorraine-based club be able to pull off this feat?

The Defending Champions and their poor performances since CL final loss

Les Parisiens haven't found their feet since losing to Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League final. Kingsley Coman, a product of the PSG academy, scored the winning goal for the Bavarians as they sealed the treble.

Since the league restart, Tuchel's side has been in tatters. PSG's poor start to the new season, following that opening day loss, continued as they fell to a 1-0 home loss against Marseille in a nasty Classique. Florian Thauvin scored the all-important goal in an encounter which ended with five players seeing red.

Les Grenats' struggle for goals

FC Metz got off to the worst possible start to the 2020/2021 Ligue 1 season. Following losses in the first two games, the Metz faithful will be hoping their squad registers their first win of the season soon so as to avoid any relegation scrap. The team's profligacy in front of goal is also something to be talked about with the team registering no goals in both games.

In their opening fixture, Vincent Hognon and his boys narrowly fell short to Monaco. Last time out, they were unable to best Lille losing by the same 1-0 scoreline at the end of 90 minutes.

PSG vs Metz Team news

Neymar, Kurzawa, and Paredes are both ruled out for this tie via suspension. It looks like Tuchel will miss a handful of first-team players as Mbappe, Icardi and Marquinos are also ruled out. With regards to the away side, Cabit, Delaine, N'Doram are all sidelined through injuries.

PSG possible starting XI:

Rico; Bernat, Kimpembe, Kehrer, Florenzi; Gueye, Verratti, Herrera; Draxler, Di Maria, Sarabia

FC Metz possible starting XI:

Oukidja; Centonze, Bronn, Boye, Fofana, Udol; Maiga, Agban, Pajot, Boulaya; Niane

PSG vs FC Metz Prediction: 2-0

Les Parisiens are in desperate need of a positive result following bloopers in their two opening games. All the pressure will be on them, but they are expected to deliver a solid win against an out-of-sorts FC Metz outfit.
