Clean Sheet Metz

With our first free betting tip we back the unbeaten in 15 consecutive rounds Metz to keep a clean sheet. They have done so in 5 of the last 6 H2H clashes. Also, Metz were able to keep clean sheets in 9 of their 14 home league games so far this season.

Under 2.5 Goals

With 5 of the last 6 H2Hs going well under 2.5 goals and all of Metz’s last 6 matches having fewer than 3 goals in them we think this might happen again. That’s why our second Metz vs Laval prediction is for the game to have fewer than 3 total goals.

Under 1.5 Metz Goals

Our final Metz vs Laval prediction is that Metz won’t be able to score more than 1 goal in the match. Metz are very solid defensively but going forward they have issues often. They’ve scored more than 1 goal in only 1 of their last 5 home league matches. Also, Metz scored more than 1 goal only once in the last 6 H2Hs.

Metz vs Laval Lineups and Team News

Metz

Metz extended their unbeaten league run to 15 with a 2-1 away win vs Quevilly. Once again played very well defensively and this was the main reason why they won. Hope that the international break hadn’t halted their momentum, collected 10 points from the previous 4 matches.

The main right-back Kouao misses this match suspended. As a result, Lo could be given a rare start despite the fact that he is more of a centre-back. At least there are no serious injury issues in the squad with the 4 players that are deemed doubtful featuring not very often when fit anyway.

Laval

Laval suffered 4 consecutive defeats right before the international break. The most recent one was a shameful loss against bottom-dwellers Niort. As a result, Laval are now in real danger of relegation and the pressure has increased significantly for them over the last month or so.

Important centre-back Goncalves sits this one out suspended. Also without 5 injured players. Among them key playmaker and top goalscorer Maggiotti and his natural replacement Sanna. Without both of them, Laval had really struggled to control this area of the pitch lately.
