Metz to Win

With our first free betting tip, we back the visitors to win. Metz sit only 2 points outside the top 2 and they come into the match with high confidence after a near-perfect run of results in their last 4 away matches (W3 D1). At the same time, Pau lost 3 of their last 4 home league games and they had been disappointing lately.

Mikautadze to Score Anytime

Our next Pau vs Metz prediction backs Metz’s top goalscorer Mikautadze (15 goals) to continue his great form from the last 2 months. The Georgian has scored 6 goals in just the last 9 rounds and we strongly believe he could score again in this one. He scored in 2 of the last 3 away games too.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our final Pau vs Metz prediction is that the game will be tight and will have less than 3 total goals. All of Pau’s last 9 games had fewer than 3 goals. So did 3 of Metz’s last 4 matches and the first meeting between the sides back in October when Metz won 1-0 at home.

Pau vs Metz Lineups and Team News

Pau

Pau once again showed that they were the worst attack in the league when losing 0-1 at home vs Le Havre. Had their visitors under pressure for long periods but failed to score again and this was the third defeat in just the last 4 home matches.

Pau continue to be without their regular striker Ba, who remains injured. At least the main playmaker Beusnard returns after serving his ban and he is expected to start.

Metz

Metz were far from vintage when hosting Laval last Saturday. Still, the second-half improvement was enough for an important 1-0 win that keeps them just 2 points outside the promotion spots. Metz are now undefeated in the last 12 rounds and they continue to play solid football.

Important midfielder Maiga picked up a knock last time around and he is doubtful. None of the other 4 players nursing injuries are important squad members though. Also, the main right-back Kouao is available again after serving his ban.
