PSG vs Metz predictions for Wednesday's Ligue 1 clash at the Parc des Princes. Can the champions bounce back from successive defeats against Metz in the French capital. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
Reason For PSG vs Metz Predictions
PSG are missing a huge number of key first team players this week.
PSG beat Metz in each of the clubs' last nine meetings.
Metz failed to score in each of their first two games of the season.
PSG down to the bare bones
PSG's turbulent start to the 2020/21 season continued on Sunday when the defending Ligue 1 champions fell to a 1-0 defeat at home to Marseille in what proved an ill-tempered contest in the French capital.
On a remarkable evening in Paris, a whopping 19 cards were brandished in total by referee Jerome Brisard, who dismissed three PSG players late on in the game's hugely dramatic climax.
Layvin Kurzawa, Leandro Paredes and Brazilian superstar Neymar were handed their marching orders and will miss PSG's game against Metz as a result, and with Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi also likely to miss Wednesday's game, the Parisians look desperately low on firepower.
With a COVID-led personnel crisis compounded by their flurry of suspensions, PSG look very light up top ahead of Wednesday's tussle with Metz, and we expect that to be reflected in the final scoreline at the full-time whistle.
As a result, the under 2.5 PSG team goals option looks superb value at the prices quoted, though our correct score prediction backs the champions to eventually force a 2-0 win.
Having beaten Metz nine times on the spin, PSG have a fine head-to-head record to look back on and having watched their opponents lose to nil in their first two Ligue 1 assignments of the season, Paris St. Germain should still have sufficient quality to push for victory.
