Metz vs Lorient
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 4th October 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien.

These are two teams more accustomed to meeting in Ligue 2 so this should be a special occasion on Sunday afternoon.

Metz come into this game in 17th place and it is evident they began the season poorly. But we have to focus on now and in the last two games the club has significantly improved.

Metz beat Reims to record their first victory of the season and followed that result up with an excellent draw away to Marseille with that game finishing 1-1.

Lorient are in 16th place and share the same points as Metz with 4. The club has started on a positive note but recent weeks have caught up with them. Lorient have no wins in their last 4 matches.

The only light at the end of the tunnel is that a 3 game losing streak was ended last weekend as they drew 1-1 at home with Lyon. Both clubs have the opportunity to improve their league placings by 4-5 positions with a win.

Metz vs Lorient: Head to Head

  • The last fixture played here was won 2-1 by Metz.
  • Lorient have won at Metz two times from the last 4 meetings.
  • There is a 70% chance to see over 2.5 goals.

Metz vs Lorient: Prediction

It would be easy to think that these two teams could cancel out each other because they are equal in quality and that we could see a boring game. Not quite so, history says these two teams play out very entertaining encounters and the plus factor for us is that it is early in the season, less to lose and we should see an open game yet again.

Over 2.5 goals looks like backing and Metz have really improved lately, we will take a small risk and back the home side to be winning this game at half time.

Metz vs Lorient Betting Tips:

  • Over 2.5 goals at 2.50 (6/4)
  • Half Time: Result: Metz to be winning at 3.00 (2/1).
