PSG vs Metz, Ligue 1 2020-21, Match Prediction

PSG will take on Metz to open their Ligue 1 2020-21 account on Wednesday after a disappointing last week. 

Match Timing: Sep 17, 12:30 AM 

Team Preview 

Two clubs will search for their first victory in the tournament after dropping the first two games. Paris Saint-Germain hosts Metz to the Parc des Princes in the important clash. The defending champions PSG had a disappointing start to their title defense. The Champions League runner up suffered defeat to Lens and Marseille. Injury concerns are hitting the Le Classique and the previous game was intense with 5 cards in a single game. Marseille got their first laugh over PSG since 2011. Florian Thauvin's strike created a whole difference, despite a good fightback from PSG in the second half. PSG trio Neymar, Leandro Paredes and Layvin Kurzawa were given red cards and they will be out of the Wednesday encounter. Thomas Tuchel's squad is already going through a coronavirus trauma. Mbapee who tested positive will be seen on the field next week. 

Meanwhile, Metz have also suffered 1-0 defeats in consecutive games against Monaco and Lille. Vincent Hognon's men avoided the relegation by 11 points last season and their new task is defeating PSG in away fixture but Les Grenats can draw attention against the wounded PSG side. PSG obviously have an advantage over Metz, winning their last nine games against Metz in all competitions. In the previous meeting, PSG had a 2-0 victory.
