France Ligue 2 – Troyes v Metz Preview (24/8/18)

Match Preview

Metz are the best team in Ligue 2 at the moment but I can’t help but feel they are being overrated by the bookies here tonight. They are -0.25 favourites, but really Troyes probably deserve slight favouritism in my opinion. They are better than what their results might suggest, but don’t have that much confidence or rhythm at the moment. Everything seems to be going Metz’s way right now but I sense they might be due a slack/down sort of game. They've only had a short week to prepare here and in their last away match they got away with murder at Clermont, somehow winning 3-2 from 0-2 down but it was richly undeserved. On that occasion they were a +0.25 underdog yet now they suddenly become a -0.25 favourite at Troyes? This doesn’t make sense to me and all the value is on the hosts. But I don’t think it would be wise to bet against Metz at the moment because they are on a roll.

Prediction: 1-1

Recommended bet: None
