Metz to Win

With our first free betting tip, we back the hosts to record a win that they need to get promoted. Metz currently sit in the top 2 only on goal difference and only a win is helpful as far as they are concerned. Metz won 5 of their last 7 league games and are undefeated in the last 24 rounds. Bastia play only for pride and lost 2 of their last 4 away games.

Metz to Score First

Our next Metz vs Bastia prediction backs Metz scoring the first goal of the game. Metz did that in 4 of their last 5 home games. At the same time, Bastia conceded the opening goal in 3 of their last 4 away matches.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our final Metz vs Bastia prediction is that there will be no more than 2 total goals scored in the match. This has been the case in all of the last 4 H2Hs. Also, only 1 of Metz’s last 5 league games went over 2.5 goals. Bastia are expected to travel for this match without many regulars who would be given early summer breaks. Avoiding humiliation is the only thing the visitors aim for.

Metz vs Bastia Lineups and Team News

Metz

Metz extended their unbeaten league run to 24 with a decisive 1-0 away win vs Sochaux. This result combined with a mistake by Bordeaux saw Metz move into the top 2 with just 1 round left. Metz edge Bordeaux only on goal difference in the race for promotion so the job is far from done.

The gaffer is happy that all of his regulars are fit and available. Even the slightly banged up in the last match full-back Udol has returned to training during the week and is expected to take part. The one player that will be absent is the suspended midfielder N’Duquidi. Metz are very deep in that area though so this shouldn’t be a major issue.

Bastia

Bastia played a strong home game against leaders Le Havre last weekend. Probably deserved to win but in the end, had to settle for a 1-1 draw. Set to finish in the top 6 but the promotion hopes disappeared a month ago.

Some reports suggest that as many as 6 regular starters were given early summer breaks after the last match so Bastia are expected to be trusting some of their youngsters and fringe players in this last match of the season.
