Lille are in 19th and are 3 points clear of bottom placed Metz. A win would give Lille a huge chance of staying in Ligue 1. They are currently 5 points from safety and this does look like their last chance to stay safe.

Current form for Lille is very poor with just 1 point won from their last 15. At home they have no wins in 4 months and have only four wins all season. But they have been battling hard at home losing only by one goal margins and have recently held both Lyon and Guingamp to draws.

Metz have been bottom for most of the season and they looked doomed even if they win. If they win their remaining four games they can get 38 points, but this looks lke very unlikely. Metz have lost just one game in their past five but the problem has been the amount of draws they have been getting. Away from home the club has lost just 1 game in their past four.

Lille vs Metz: Prediction

Lille have been in very poor form but surely they will up the stakes in this game and play it like a cup final. It is really their final realistic chance to try and break free and give themselves a chance. Metz remains unpredictable but we will side with the home team to get a very nervous win.
