A showdown in the French League 2 between two of the top four teams. No. 1 ranked Le Havre has the best defense in the league (11 goals allowed in 26 matches). They've tied five of their last 10 and have to head out on the road where they're on a 1-0-4 run. That includes DRAWS at Paris FC (0-0), ninth-ranked Amiens SC (1-1), third-ranked Sochaux (1-1), and at sixth-ranked Grenoble Foot 38. Fourth-ranked Metz also has a terrific defense (24 goals allowed) and their +16 goal differential is the third-best. They've tied four of their last seven with 1-1 DRAWS against Valenciennes and Rodez, along with 0-0 scoreless deadlocks versus Caen and Dijon. And in four of the last five meetings between these rivals, Le Havre had a pair of 1-0 victories along with ties of 2-2 and 1-1. This is an evenly matched battle with the wagering value on another deadlock. Take Metz/Le Havre to DRAW.
