Metz vs Lille Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Metz vs Lille Predictions
Metz goes to this game placed ninth with 42 points, while Lille is at the top of the standings with 66 points. A top-half finish should be good enough for Metz this season, but they need a lot of improvement to be able to achieve that at the end of the campaign. Going to this game, they’re the lowest scoring side in the top 10, with 36 goals, 15 lesser than Lille’s tally. They’ve failed to score in their last two matches – both against Monaco – and are winless in their last four Ligue 1 matches. In the four league games, Metz has conceded ten goals and scored only three. They have no clean sheet in the previous ten league matches, with seven of them producing over 2.5 goals. Metz suffered a 3-1 loss to Rennes in their last home match in the league and head here with three straight home losses in Ligue 1 and just two wins in the previous 11 league matches at home. In the 11 home league matches, the team has five losses and only three clean sheets. Victorien Angban has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
Lille is coming from a crucial 1-0 away win at PSG, which sent them three points at the top of the Ligue 1 standings. The league leaders are unbeaten in their last four matches against Metz, with three wins. Their previous loss to Metz was back in 2017, and they have three clean sheets in the four meetings after that. Canadian international Jonathan David scored the lone goal against PSG, his 10th in the league campaign, handing Lille a ninth win in 13 league matches. Great defending has been Lille’s pillar in the season; they’re the best on that front, having conceded 19 goals in the season so far. Away from home, no team in the league has posted better returns; Lille head to this game unbeaten in their last ten away matches, with eight wins in there. Jonathan Ikone is a great player, and many teams are interested in this guy. He has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. He is the future of French football. Christophe Galtier is brilliantly leading this team, and he has the great trust of the people from the club.
Lille is the favorite in this match, the goal is to fight for the title, and they have no right to make a mistake.
The prediction for this match is over 1.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
