Sochaux vs Metz Free Betting Tips and Predictions

The Ligue 2 match Sochaux – Metz sees a team very low on motivation and in awful form host a team that desperately needs the 3 points to stay relevant in the promotion race. Below we have tried to give you our best free betting tips.

Metz to Win

Our first Sochaux vs Metz prediction backs the visitors to record the win that they need to see them stay alive until the final round in the race for promotion. Metz come into this match on the back of winning 4 of their last 6 away games, and drew the other 2. At the same time, Sochaux’s motivation and focus disappeared once all promotion hope was lost. As a result, Sochaux have now lost 6 in a row.

Metz to Score First

With our next Sochaux vs Metz prediction we again back the visitors. This time we think they will be the team to draw first blood. Metz scored first in 4 of their last 6 games. At the same time, Sochaux conceded the opening goal in 3 of their last 4 matches.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our final Sochaux vs Metz prediction is that there will be fewer than 3 total goals in the match. Only 1 of the last 5 H2Hs went over 2.5 goals. Also, Sochaux saw 3 of their last 4 games having no more than 2 goals. The same happened with 3 of Metz’s last 4 matches.

Sochaux vs Metz Lineups and Other News

Sochaux

Sochaux suffered their 6th consecutive defeat last weekend in a very painful manner. Despite starting well and taking an early lead on their visit to Paris the visitors conceded in stoppage time to lose 1-2. With the form dreadful and the manager only just sacked Sochaux can’t wait for this season to be over so they could regroup and find a  new gaffer.

There are plenty of selection issues for the interim boss to worry about. Star anchor-man Ndiaye is missing suspended. Also, 9 others nurse injuries and from them, no more than 1-2 can be expected to recover on time. Among the serious doubts are key playmaker Weissbeck and winger Mauricio.

Metz

Metz might have lost their promotion chances last Saturday when they were held to a 1-1 draw on their visit to Guingamp. Still, not out of it but sit 3 points behind Bordeaux with just 2 rounds left. Metz are still in the race because they went on an impressive 23-game unbeaten run that is still active.

Expected to be using aggressive tactics and attacking formation with only a win helpful for Metz. There are no long-term absentees but striker Gueye is among a group of 5 players that are deemed doubtful. Even if they are all to miss Metz have plenty of cover.
