This match has finished. To watch current games go to the sections Today's Football Predictions, Football Betting Prediction for Tomorrow or Football Predictions for the Weekend.

All the pre-match chatter has surrounded a ridiculous end to proceedings in Sunday's Le Classique, as PSG lost 1-0 at home to Marseille and drama ensued on the pitch. Five players were sent off in stoppage-time, during a match that had 14 yellow cards and the spectacle certainly lived up to the billing of a fiercely-contested derby.

Nonetheless, last season's Champions League finalists PSG host Metz on Wednesday with both sides pointless after two Ligue 1 matches. Who will break their duck in midweek? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

PSG vs Metz Betting Tips

PSG had 65% possession, 14 shots (four on target), missed four big chances and were ultimately stunned by Florian Thauvin's first-half winner. Marseille by contrast, were clinical but defended well under pressure.

Marco Verratti and Pablo Sarabia both missed golden chances while Neymar squandered two in his first game since their Champions League Final defeat by Bayern last month. Roma's Alessandro Florenzi, who joined on a season-long loan deal two days earlier, was their best performer on a night to forget.

He created five key passes, three big chances, won five of six ground duels and made two tackles in 84 minutes. The stoppage-time chaos was remarkable but means PSG are without Neymar and two second-half substitutes against Metz.

Layvin Kurzawa (violent conduct) and Leandro Paredes, the latter already on a booking, were both sent off by referee Brisard Jerome for their part in a needless scrap.

Metz suffered successive 1-0 defeats by Monaco and Lille, but can they respond accordingly against a depleted PSG side here? They'll need big performances from goalkeeper Alexandre Oukidja and their frontline to inflict further damage on the champions, who are struggling.

PSG vs Metz Correct Score Predictions

I backed PSG to beat Lens and instead they were narrowly beaten 1-0, though Marcin Bulka's goalkeeping error directly led to their demise. Their most recent game? They should have won.

So, surely their profligacy in-front of goal ends here – even without Neymar through suspension and Kylian Mbappe? This will probably be close, but again, I feel inclined to back the defending champions to find a way through.
