Lyon vs Metz Prediction
Rudi Garcia’s men have been struggling to juggle their Ligue 1 games along with their mid-week European clashes, and have just one win to boast of, from their last five games in all competitions.
The hosts are currently seventeenth on the ladder with just ten points to their name and will be welcoming Metz this weekend on the back of an eight-match winless run.
Metz, on the other hand, are just a point above Lyon in the table. The visitors secured what was only their third win of the season last week, after managing to get the better of Nantes at home. However, that alone does not guarantee the bragging rights for the away side in this one.
For starters, the guests have come out on top just once in their previous five outings. They have not been faring well in their past visits to this venue either, and have been at the losing end in their last four trips here.
It is also worth mentioning that the only two defeats for the hosts at home have come by narrow 1-0 scorecards, against PSG and Nantes, both of whom are at top of the table. With Metz hardly causing any trouble to their foes on the road, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Lyon at the end of the ninety minutes.
Additionally, the visitors have lost without as much as a consolation goal to their name in three of their last four outings. Taking into account that they have not been able to breach this foe in any of their previous four head to head clashes here as well, expect Lyon to return to winning ways with a clean sheet intact in this one.
