Monaco were firmly dominant against Stade Reims but forced to share the spoils last weekend. Can they earn their first league victory since mid-February against a Metz side starting their season with a tough home clash?

With an impressive H2H record in tow, Niko Kovac should have no worries about his team this weekend. But as evidenced by their 2-2 draw last Sunday, anything can happen. Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Metz vs Monaco Betting Tips

Monaco showed great resiliency and determination to recover from 2-0 down after 20 minutes, earning a gritty point on MD1. However with 76% ball possession, 22 shots, two big chances missed, one woodwork hit and 665 passes completed (90% success), they should've earned all three.

It's perhaps why Axel Disasi – who spent four years at Reims before a £11.7m move this month – celebrated so passionately after his header in first-half stoppage-time. His centre-back partner Benoit Badiashile completed the comeback ten minutes into the second-half. However, they shouldn't have been in that situation to begin with.

It'll be interesting to see whether Kovac sticks with Henry Onyekuru on the wing, after an ineffective display. Replaced by Sofiane Diop at half-time, the 20-year-old playmaker was more impactful and could be rewarded with a start here.

Metz, whose initial curtain-raiser against defending champions Paris Saint-Germain was postponed, have an easier opening challenge on paper. However, they host a Monaco side eager to atone for last week's frustrations.

Although Sunday's hosts have won their last two H2H meetings, they lost seven in a row before that. It's fair to say this will be an intriguing clash that could go either way.

Metz vs Monaco Correct Score Predictions

Last week, I predicted Monaco would begin the season with a home victory against Reims. They were unfortunate not to, and although this weekend presents a risky away clash, I'm inclined to back them again. Metz are good enough to win, but Kovac should make the necessary adjustments to his team here as he targets his first victory in charge.
