prior to last weekend, metz endured a bad run of 3 games where they were held by sedan, chateauroux, and beaten by brest. they are, however, a quality side, and i expect them to be able to push clermont foot, despite being the away team. the likes of babacar gueye and cyril chapuis should be able to stretch the clermont foot defence. their good form at home is something to take note of though, losing only once in 7 games. this stat is rather surprising considering the lack of quality in their squad, and i expect them to lose at home for only the second time this season.
Eddy's prediction: $5 on fc metz level ball @ 1.88 = $9.40
