Metz vs Lyon Match Preview
Lyon travel to Metz for their Matchday 26 clash with a worrying Ligue 1 streak behind them interrupted only with a Coupe de France win over Marseille (1-0), where they were denied a top 3 chase with just two points in four games. They now look to end the unwanted streak and snatch the points at Saint-Symphorien Stadium, desperate for a pick-me-up ahead of the Champions League clash against Juventus.
Les Gones were held to home draws by Amiens (0-0) and Strasbourg (1-1) but losses at Nice (2-1) and PSG (4-2) could be even more worrying for Rudi Garcia, as his men struggled defensively and couldn’t make up for the shortcomings. Still, they’ll hope they are not in for the same sort of a challenge now and we feel they same.
Metz caught up and sit just six points behind Lyon at this point, after beating reims (0-1) and St Etienne (3-1) in late January and early February, respectively. They proved themselves a tough nut to crack and held off Montpellier (1-1) as well as Nantes (0-0) since then, while only seeing Bordeaux (1-2) snatch all three points along the way.
Vincent Hognon has things to be happy about in their top-flight survival battle as his men kept scoring goals in front of the home fans, which adds to the feeling we should be in for another exciting game here. They bagged at least a goal in ten of their 11 home outings since September and will want to keep it up against rivals struggling for consistency.
However, we feel Lyon should have what it takes to outgun Metz at this point and we’ll now stick with them to snatch all three points at Saint-Symphorien, going for Away win at an enticing 88/100 with William Hill – which has caught the eye of many value seekers already.
With hope we’re in for thrills and goals on both ends, we’re also going for a high-scoring occasion with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 11/10 with bet365. Lyon haven’t really been able to keep clean sheets and this adds to such a belief, especially for those hoping to see a winner on the day.
