Our latest betting predictions for Caen vs Metz

If you need some help to decide what is the right bet for Caen vs Metz, check our top betting picks for this duel:

Caen to Win

Both teams enter this game after winning their first-round matches, so we expect a very close and exciting match, especially since these are two of the main candidates for promotion this season.

That being said, our first prediction is for Caen to win this game. After all, they are playing at home and the last two duels against Metz which they hosted, Caen eventually won.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

While we saw three goals in the game played by Metz in the first round, we only saw one goal in Caen’s first-round duel against Nimes. Still, we can see this game going over 2.5 total goals.

After all, three of the last five head-to-head duels between Caen and Metz have gone over 2.5 total goals and we won’t be surprised if that’s the case on Monday as well.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in three of the previous five h2h meetings between Caen and Metz, so we can see that happening once again in their upcoming duel.

That being said, we did not see both teams score in any of the games played by these teams in the first round of Ligue 2. Still, we like the h2h data and expect that trend to continue.

Caen vs Metz preview: The derby of the round

Caen

After they finished seventh in the standings of Ligue 2 last season and failed to make even the promotion playoffs, Caen is hoping to do better now and be one of the teams fighting for promotion to the top flight of French football. To their credit, they did start the new season with a win over Nimes away from home, so that bodes well for their aspirations.

Metz

Last season was one to forget for Metz and their fans since their team ended up being relegated from Ligue 1 after they only finished ahead of Bordeaux in the standings. Of course, Metz is hoping for a swift return to the top flight of French football and they started the new season in a convincing manner after beating Amiens 3-0 at home.
