In the 7th round of the French Championship season 2021-2022, Metz will play at home with PSG. Will the hosts be able to resist the pressure of the favorite of the national championship? How many goals will the Parisians score? Will Lionel Messi open the scoring for the new club? The outcome of the upcoming meeting will help answer these and other questions. So, 1xbet mobile app on the victory of Metz gives the odds of 13.50, the draw is estimated at 7.50, and the victory of PSG is estimated at 1.27.
The team after 6 played rounds of the French championship is in last place in the standings. Frederic Antonetti’s wards with 3 points are in the last, 20th place in the standings. To get out of the relegation zone, Metz needs to score at least three points. The team scored only three points in six games, while Metz has never won the new national championship. The main achievement of the team in League 1 of the 2021-2022 season can only be considered a combat draw with the reigning champion of the country – Lille. That game ended 3: 3.
Metz drew three times in the new season – the match with Lille, the game with Reims (1: 1) and Clermorn (2: 2). In the remaining three games, the team was defeated – with Nantes (0: 2), Troyes (0: 2) and Strasbourg (0: 3).
The Parisians in the new season of Ligue 1 are impeccable – the team shows 100% result and leads the national championship by a margin. In six games, the Parisians scored 18 points and have a five-point lead over their pursuers. The team is productive – 18 goals in 6 matches, however, it is not so flawless in defense – 6 conceded goals. Mauricio Pochettino’s wards seem to be the main contender for victory in League 1 of the 2021-2022 season and the main intrigue of the season is PSG’s European achievements and the individual successes of Lionel Messi, who joined the ranks of the capital’s club this summer.
Paris-Saint-Germain beat Troyes (2: 1), Strasbourg and Brest (both matches 4: 2) in the new Ligue 1 draw, defeated Clermont (4: 0) and in the previous round beat strong Lyon (2: 1) However, if we evaluate the performance of PSG as a whole, then the team is not so perfect – the Parisians lost in the match for the French Super Cup (defeat 0: 1 from Lille), and also lost points in the league-championship meeting with Bruges (1: 1).
How Metz and PSG will play: match prediction and bookmaker quotes
The history of the opposition between the teams has 79 matches played, in which the Parisians won 46 times. The previous five head-to-head meetings between the teams ended with the following results:
04.24.21 Metz – PSG 1: 3;

08/30/19 Metz – PSG 0: 2;
03/10/18 PSG – Metz 5: 0;
08.09.17 Metz – PSG 1: 5.
Metz in the upcoming meeting is an outsider of the confrontation – the team started the new season extremely poorly and at the moment is one of the main contenders for a demotion in the class. Metz misses a lot – 13 goals in 6 matches, while the team is not so effective – only 6 goals.
PSG, despite the away nature of the meeting, will cope with the opponent without any problems. The Parisians will score at least two goals against Metz and win another three points in the championship. The hosts are likely to choose a defensive game model for this meeting, but Metz’s defense is unlikely to withstand the pressure of the star attack of Pochettino’s charges.
