PSG and Metz meet at Parc des Princes, in a match for matchday 1 of Ligue 1. At this stadium, the history of direct confrontations is favorable to the home team, which has 3 wins and 1 draw in the last 4 matches. However, the last time these two teams played a match at this stadium was on 04-05-2020, in a match for Ligue 1 which ended in a draw by (-). In this game, the home factor may be decisive, since PSG presents considerable differences in their results at home and as a visitor.
The home team plays a matchday 1 match against Metz, which had been postponed, after 2 defeats in their league matches so far. This is a team that curiously tends to achieve more positive results as a visitor than at home, since in the last 30 games they have registered 12 victories, 1 draw and 2 losses as a visitor, with 53 goals scored and 12 suffered; against 11 victories, 2 draws and 2 defeats in his stadium, with 39 goals scored and 11 suffered.

Paris Saint-Germain comes to this game quite unmotivated, after a 0-1 defeat at home with Marseille. The home team operates on a 4-3-3 tactical system, in which the three most advanced players are Di María, Kalimuendo and Sarabia. The home team chooses to adopt a game of ball possession, attacking preferably through the central zone. One of the great weaknesses of the Parisian club has been the inability to score in the scoring opportunities it manages to create during its matches. The coach will not be able to count on Navas, Marquinhos, Mbappé and Icardi, because he is in quarantine. It should be noted that Neymar, Kurzawa and Paredes will also be absent, as they were sent off on the last day.
The visiting team disputes against PSG a match of matchday 1 that had been postponed, after 2 defeats in their league matches so far. This is a team that presents similar results at home and away, so it is not usually affected by the home factor, since in the last 30 games it has recorded 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses as a visitor; against 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in his stadium. In the last 10 away matches for all competitions, Metz won 5, drew 2 and lost 3. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 8 of the last 10 matches, so there are defensive processes that need to be improved.
Metz come to this game unmotivated, after a 1-0 defeat at the Lille stadium visit. The outsider team usually acts in a 4-3-3, favoring a more balanced style of play, in which the three most advanced pieces are Nguette, Niane and Maiga. One of the main weaknesses of the visiting team is the poor quality it presents in maintaining possession of the ball. Coach Vincent Hognon should not be able to count on Vágner, Traoré, Cabit and N'Doram, turned over to the medical department.
