Metz vs Lyon: Match Preview and Prediction

Metz vs Lyon: In the last ten games across all competitions, Metz has lost eight and drawn two. Lyon comes into the match having won four straight games in all competitions. Metz has only scored three goals or more in three of its last ten games in all competitions.

Lyon won a tough home match against Nice last Friday. After 90 minutes, Les Gones scored on their only shot at Groupama Stadium to win 1-0. Six of Pierre Sage’s 20 shots were on target. The winning hero was keeper Anthony Lopes. Defensive midfielder Orel Mangala scored the only goal.

It was Lyon’s fourth consecutive victory across all categories. Right now, Les Gones is three points above the danger zone. This Friday night will present them with a great opportunity to maintain their excellent form. In the opening match of Matchday No. 23, Sage’s team travels to Stade Saint-Symphorien to face Metz, who are fighting for relegation.

Metz is in a tough spot. They are second-last in Ligue 1. Since the safe zone is five points away, Laszlo Boloni and his soldiers have little hope of improving. Boloni’s side has lost ten straight games (all competitions). Sunday was their latest loss. On the road, Metz lost 0-3 against Montpellier.

Metz vs Lyon: Betting Analysis

The rematch between Lyon and Metz took place in November of last year at Groupama Stadium, ending in a 1-1 draw. In their previous five encounters with Les Grenats, Lyon had only one victory. In all but one of the previous six meetings between these rivals, both teams scored.

Metz doesn’t cut down trees anymore. They have drawn two, lost eight, and tied two in their last ten games across all categories. Les Grenats had only two goals in their previous five Ligue 1 games. They have only scored two goals in their last five home games across all competitions. Lyon goalie Anthony Lopes is doing well. He excelled in a clean-sheet win over Nice seven days earlier. We back Lyon to win their fifth straight across all competitions at 1.80 odds.

Metz has found it hard to score lately. Five points out of the safety zone, they cannot afford another home loss. We expect a tough match with few chances for either side. The 1-1 tie in the replay was not stunning. Our other choice is under 2.5 goals FT. Bet at 1.75 odds.
