Le Havre or Draw

League-leaders Le Havre are very close to direct promotion. They sit at the top of the ladder for a reason and enter this match with only 1 league defeat suffered all season. Already played 27 rounds. At the same time, Metz remain outside the top 3 due to dropping too many points despite some very solid defensive displays. Metz were held to draws in 3 of their last 5 home matches. Also, Metz failed to win any of their last 5 matches against Le Havre (D2 L3). Due to all that our first Metz vs Le Havre prediction is for the guests to avoid defeat.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our next Metz vs Le Havre prediction looks at the possibility of this being a low-scoring contest. Both teams have excellent defensive lines and that’s why we think there will be fewer than 3 total goals scored.

Metz saw 7 of their last 8 home league games going under 2.5 goals. Le Havre were involved in a high-scoring match only once in their last 10 away matches.

BTTS – No

Following the previous betting tip we also think that not both sides will score in the game. Metz are currently on a run of 5 consecutive clean sheets. They also kept clean sheets in 9 of their 13 home matches so far. Le Havre kept 3 clean sheets in the last 5 rounds and they have the best defence in the division.

Metz vs Le Havre Lineups and Team News

Metz

Metz impressed in their 3-0 away win against Annecy last time around. Mikautadze was the Man of the Match on that occasion. Defensively looked rock solid too. As a result, Metz are now undefeated in the last 9 rounds (W5 D4).

Metz have all of their regulars fit and available. Even Maiga is back after suspension and he could start. The few players that nurse injuries are rarely used anyway.

Le Havre

Le Havre had to come from behind in the last round before beating Laval 2-1 at home. The confidence and the aggression shown once again impressed. Sangante was key for the comeback, while Joujou had a solid debut.

Le Havre continue to play in a league of their own and they are now undefeated in the last 24 rounds (W15 D9).

The manager continues to find ways to create very strong defensive lines, this despite some injury issues. Wahib’s season is over. Another important centre-back Moussadek is doubtful. Even if both miss Le Havre have plenty of quality defenders still.
