AS Monaco hosts Metz in the Coupe de France 1/8 finals. The match will be played on Tuesday, April 6th at Stade Louis II (Monaco)
This season we see the Monaco that we are used to seeing in the best years of the club. The team has already reached the third place in the Ligue 1 standings, and it will give the right to play in the Champions League qualification. And if you analyze the situation in more detail, the Monegasques are among the four contenders for the title, as the gap to the leading Lille is only four points. Monaco had a streak of 13 matches without defeats in all tournaments, which allowed it to catch up with the leaders. The Monegasques have not conceded in four matches in a row, and the last two meetings ended in 4-0 victories.

Until recently, Metz was a real contender for a place in the European Cup zone. But then the team showed a disastrous segment, gaining only one point in four meetings. Now the club is only ninth, and the chances of taking a high place have decreased dramatically. Coupe de France may become an excellent alternative, but the way in this tournament is too long. Even if the Maroons manage to beat Monaco, they will advance only to the quarterfinals of the tournament. Metz is a quite unyielding middle peasant who needs to get out of a streak of failures.
The opponents have already met twice in the current season of Ligue 1, and Monaco has won both games. The last meeting took place just a few days ago, and the Monegasques hammered the opponents at home (4-0). It is starkly obvious that bookmakers give an advantage to the hosts of the upcoming match, especially if we take into account the result of the last head-to-head meeting. But Metz is a rather unyielding club, and it will probably try to avenge the latest thumping. Therefore, we recommend betting on a neutral option with Over 2.5 goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored
