Predictions and Best Odds for Metz vs Caen

Metz is taking charge of its fate by making it sure they are near the leading clubs to take at least the second place in the rankings which would guarantee them promotion to Ligue 1.

Metz to Win

The last time Metz tasted defeat in Ligue 2 was in the back end of October when they went down to league leaders Le Havre. Since that day, Metz had six wins and three draws. Their home form has seen a vast improvement, after suffering through early losses, they have found some continuity and it showed in their overall performances. Caen is in the bottom half of the league when it comes to their away form, they have won only a couple of times in eleven games. Caen won the first match of the season between these teams by a single goal.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

When we look at the statistics about their h2h matchup to get some information that we are going to base our prediction on, it is curious to notice that when they played in Metz in recent years, both teams have scored goals regularly, which wasn’t the case when they play in Caen. As a matter of a fact, the last six times they played in Metz, BTTS was covered. Concerning their recent league form, both teams covered the BTTS bases in three out of their past five encounters.

First Half Correct Score – 0-0

Even though the previous prediction has been seen as a Metz win, that doesn’t mean it is going to be an easy journey for the home team. Caen has been playing well recently in away games, and even though they lost last week to Annecy, earlier they beat Sochaux, the second-ranked team in the league. Metz has played seven straight games with a 0-0 score at the half. Interestingly, some of those matches ended with a lot of goals in the second half, and with Metz staying undefeated through that streak, it is obvious that their tactics predict a certain outcome when they close down their opponents during the first 45 minutes of play.
