Metz vs Lyon
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 6th December 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saint-Symphorien (Metz).
Metz will have a very tough game on their hands as they take on one of the best teams in Ligue 1 in Lyon on Sunday night.
Metz have been up and down already and have shown some great form, but have looked naive at the same time. They have dropped down to 12th place and come into this match having no wins in their last 3, that includes two draws though.
Last weekend Metz lost 2-0 at home to Brest and so they have a second opportunity in a row to play at home. Currently Metz have won 50% of their home games.
Lyon are in third place and just 2 points behind PSG coming into this weekend. Form is very good for the club and they have won their last 3 games in a row. They have scored six goals in those games and last weekend beat Reims 3-0.
Away from home and Lyon have been a little more inconsistent but at the same time they are not losing games recently and have gone their last 4 away matches without defeat.
Metz vs Lyon: Head to Head
Last season Lyon won this match 2-0.
Lyon have won the last 7 league meetings in a row against Metz.
Metz have not scored a goal in the league against Lyon since 2014.
Metz vs Lyon: Prediction
Lyon are the better side of course and unlike last season they have learned to play much better away from home.
Lyon seem to be profiting from no European football where they can concentrate 100% on the league and try to challenge PSG.
This match should be an away win and we also think Lyon can dominate much of the game and we can get better value this way and have them winning at half time and full time. There is a lot of confidence with the side and Metz hate playing Lyon.
Metz vs Lyon Betting Tips:
