PSG vs Metz

Ligue 1

MET VS PSG MATCH PREVIEW:

PSG’s performance against Real Madrid in the Champions League summed up the season for the French giant. Top of the Ligue 1 and most likely all other domestic titles will come to Parc des Princes as well, but the Parisians just don’t know how to win in Europe’s top competition despite spending big on the likes of Neymar and Mbappe in the summer.

But it’s a completely different story in the Ligue 1. They are 11 points clear at the top of the table and also have a game in hand over the defending Champions Monaco who are 2nd in the table. This week the Unai Emery’s men entertain Ligue 2 bound Metz, and it’s a no-brainer to predict the outcome of this match.

The visitors are rock-bottom heading into this match and only a miracle can save them from going down to Ligue 2. However, on current form, they look like the first team to be dropped as they haven’t won in their last seven games.

Expect a full wrath from Unai Emery’s men when they welcome Metz for the game serving as a redemption for the hosts.
