Lyon vs Metz Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Lyon will look to close the gap at the top of the Ligue 1 table when they welcome Metz at the Groupama Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Lyon picked up a comfortable 0-5 away victory at Troyes thanks to a hat-trick from Memphis Depay and two other goals from Bertrand Traore and Mariano Diaz. On the flip side, Metz lost 1-2 at home at the hands of Dijon, with their consolation goal being scored by Nolan Roux just before the break. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview. Feel free to visit our Bet of the day page to check our best daily tips.

Lyon have been scoring goals for fun throughout this campaign and I think this will be the case in this one as well. They have netted at least two goals in nine of their last eleven home games across all competitions. Furthermore, Lyon have won their last three home meetings with Metz across all competitions, scoring ten goals in the process.

Lyon Preview

Lyon head into this tie on the back of a six-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, winning three and drawing three in this term. They did well to beat Monaco 3-2 at home after the International break and followed this up with a narrow 1-2 away win at Everton in the Europa League last week. Furthermore, Metz managed a comfortable 0-5 away victory at Troyes in Ligue 1 at the weekend. Les Gones have been scoring goals for fun recently, as they managed to find the back of the net at least twice in five of their last six competitive fixtures. Actually, they are the division’s third topscorers with 25 goals after ten rounds. Mariano Diaz and Nabil Fekir have both been in splendid shape in this early part of the season, as the pair bagged 15 goals and three assists between them. Memphis Depay has also played a vital role in Lyon’s performances throughout the season, helping the team with five goals and three assists in his nine league appearances. At home, Lyon are unbeaten in their last eleven games across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in nine of these. Furthermore, Lyon have won four of their last five home meetings with Metz across all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in each of these.

Lyon Team News

Ferland Mendy is the only doubtful player for Lyon ahead of this clash.

Metz Preview

On the other hand, Metz are the worst team in Ligue 1 at the moment in time, as they have only won one of the opening league games. Metz are rock bottom of the Ligue 1 table with just three points to their name after ten rounds, already six points behind safety. Finding the back of the net has been Metz’ main problem throughout this campaign as they hold the joint worst attacking record in the division with just five goals scored in ten rounds. Nolan Roux is the team’s topscorer with three goals under his belt in his ten league appearances. Metz head into this tie on the back of a four-game losing streak in Ligue 1, scoring just two goals in the process. Away from home, Metz have suffered defeats in four of their five league trips so far this season, scoring just once in this term. In addition, Metz have lost in four of their last five visits to the Groupama Stadium, scoring none in the process. Last season, Metz have lost both home and away at the hands of Lyon, conceding eight goals and scoring none in this term.

Metz Team News

Ablie Jallow, Matthieu Udol, Milan Bisevac, Theodore Efouba and Yann Jouffre are all doubts ahead of this trip.
