Lorient vs Metz
France Ligue 2
Date: Friday 26th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade du Moustoir (Lorient).

Lorient and Metz will clash on Friday night as the former Ligue 1 side will be trying in vain this time to be promoted back. The problem is that they are already 6 points behind league leaders Metz and 5 points from a promotion place. Lorient can really put down the marker with a win here against the best side at this time in Ligue 2.

Form for Lorient has not been good with just 1 win in their past four games. Last weekend they lost to Brest 3-2 and their only recent win came against Nancy.

The good news is that Lorient are unbeaten at home this season where from 5 games they have won 3 and drawn 2. They are about to be tested.

Metz lead Ligue 2 by just a point over Lens and they have won their last 2 games which was important for them given that previously they had notched up back to back losses, but the team have really recovered well since then.

Metz have the best away record in the league with just 1 loss and have gained 15 points from a possible 18. They have scored 11 goals on the road which is also the best in the league.

Lorient vs Metz: Head to Head

The last time the teams met here was in 2017 where Lorient won 5-1.

Lorient have won the last 3 games in a row when being at home.

Metz have not won at this ground since 2008.

Lorient vs Metz: Prediction

It’s true that Metz have a brilliant away record but it is also true that they haven’t really faced one of their big rivals yet on the road. When they faced the decent Paris FC they lost and we think they will struggle against a top rival in Lorient.

For this we are backing the home side to get the win and for smaller stakes we will back the correct score. Lorient have a lot to prove for and play for and have the motivation to play their best match of their season.

Lorient vs Metz: Bet Tips

Lorient to beat Metz at 2.50 (6/4)

Correct Score: Lorient to win 2-1 or 3-1 at 9.00 (8/1) and 21.00 (20/1).
