Annecy vs Metz Predictions and Top Odds

With their status in Ligue 2 almost secured for next season, Annecy has different agenda for the rest of the season compared to Metz who is in the middle of a fight for promotion.

Metz to Win

Annecy made French Cup history on Wednesday by defeating Marseille on penalties to advance into the semifinals. This is their main focus for the rest of the season. They are currently tenth in Ligue 2 with a nine-point advantage over the first team in the relegation zone, so they can feel a bit more comfortable going forward and thinking more about their next Cup opponent. Metz is in a different state of mind, they are lying in the fourth position in the league with only four points away from the second-placed Bordeaux. With all the emotion that followed the home teams’ Cup win, this Annecy vs Metz prediction is about the advantage that the visiting side will have regarding the outcome.

Both Teams to Score – No

In their last five games, Annecy covered BTTS in three of them. However, the prevalent aspect of this Annecy vs Metz pick is the fact that while playing at home, Annecy had four straight games when one team didn’t score a goal which should be significant enough to maintain interest in that aspect this time around. Metz also played three games out of their last five away encounters without at least one failing to get on the scoresheet.

Under 2.5 Goals

Going with the same purpose with this prediction, Metz had seven matches in a row with under 2.5 goals which is an impressive streak, especially because they won three of those matches, and they are the ones who are not conceding goals. Annecy had three games from their last five with fewer than three goals scored, and adding to the fact that their first match ended without any goals, it makes sense to once again move in that direction.

Team Information, Annecy vs Metz Lineups, and Preview

Annecy

The host had a good season when it comes to their league form. They were never expected to be in a position to try and secure promotion to the Top Division, and moving into the French Cup semifinals is the icing on the cake of their season with more excitement to come. Alexandre Phliponeau, Jean-Jacques Rocchi, and Romain Spano are injured while Bissenty Mendy will miss the match due to suspension.

Metz

The guest team has been consistent for most of the season getting enough wins to put them in a position where they can think about going back to Ligue 1. Since the winter break was over they haven’t lost a game going on a ten-match winning streak which could continue against Annecy who is in a different kind of mindset at the moment. Goalkeeper Marc-Aurele Caillard is the only injured player for Metz.
