Our football match prediction:
Star-studded PSG will be looking to record their fifth consecutive win in Ligue 1 when they take on Metz at Stade Saint-Symphorien on Friday evening. Les Parisiens have been scoring goals for fun at the start of the season and big-money signing Neymar looks unstoppable at the moment. The Brazilian ace has already netted three goals in the 2017/2018 Ligue 1 campaign and seeing that Edinson Cavani has found his goal-scoring touch of late as well, it is no surprise Unai Emery’s men are seen as hot favourites to win Friday’s football match against Metz. Les Grenats, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom of the Ligue 1 standings and they are unlikely to shock les Parisiens on Matchday 5. David faces Goliath at Stade Saint-Symphorien and we predict that PSG are going to keep their 100% record in the French top flight intact.

The Luxembourg international signed a loan deal with SC Preusen Munster in 2015 and it has to be noted that he played 25 games for the German side in the league.

Chris Philipps, whose contract with Metz should expire in June 2018, made only 11 appearances for les Grenats in the 2016/2017 Ligue 2 campaign, but, no doubt, he helped the club secure promotion to the French top flight.
Highlighted Team (Paris SG):
Formed by the merger of Paris FC and Stade Saint-Germain in 1970, Paris Saint-Germain or as they call it PSG is the most successful club in French football with 31 domestic titles to their name. Having won six Ligue 1 title so far, a record ten Coupes de France, a record six Coupes de la Ligue, six Trophees des Champions and one Ligue 2 title, PSG are also one of only two French clubs to ever win a European title. Les Parisiens were crowned UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup champions back in 1995-96, while their last European trophy was the 2001 UEFA Intertoto Cup. Beginning of the new millennium was particularly hard for the celebrated club who flirted with relegation in 2000s before they were bought by the Quatar Sports Investments group in 2011 when the rebirth of the Paris Saint-Germain as we know it today began. Following heavy squad investments and team boosting, PSG won their first Ligue 1 title in 19 years with Swedish legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic almost singlehandedly leading his side towards the trophy with 30 goals. Having established domestic dominance, PSG now set their sights on winning the Champions League which remains an elusive dream for the club from Paris.
