Bitesize Prediction: Metz vs Le Havre – 13/03/23
Competition: Ligue 2
Market: Over 1.5 goals
Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport
Two sides who have their sights set on securing a Ligue 1 return this season, Metz will welcome Le Havre to the Stade Saint-Symphorien on Monday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Metz might have lost their top-flight status last season, it is no secret that Laszlo Boloni’s men have their sights set on securing an immediate Ligue 1 return in 2023. Last seen putting in another rampant display as they opened March with a 3-0 romp away at Annecy, the Maroons now find themselves sat just three points adrift of breaking into the top-two. Only continuing to shine on either side of the World Cup’s winter break, the Lorraine-based outfit are unbeaten in each of their last 13 straight Ligue 2 showdowns – a run that stems all the way back to October 24th. Likewise, gaining a reputation for their extended flurry at the Stade Saint-Symphorien, Metz will be desperate to lay down a promotion marker here. It should be noted, Boloni’s side have not suffered a single defeat on home soil over the past six months.
As for the visitors, last seen putting in another eye-catching display as they picked up a 2-1 victory at home against Laval on March 4th, Le Havre are in the midst of a remarkable Ligue 2 flurry. Holding a commanding nine-point buffer from dropping out of the automatic promotion spots, Luka Elsner’s men appear to be skyrocketing towards a top-flight return in 2023. Remarkably losing just one of their 26 second-tier showdowns this season, the former Standard Liege boss should also be excited by his most recent meeting against Monday’s hosts. When Le Havre welcomed Metz to the Stade Oceane back on October 24th for their reverse meeting, Elsner’s side picked up a 2-1 victory on home soil. It should also be noted, with 12 of their last 14 contests finishing with over 1.5 goals, we are backing a similar outcome here.
Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Metz vs Le Havre 1/2 for Monday’s Ligue 2 battle @ 888sport
