Metz vs Lyon Prediction & Betting tips
Metz must score against Lyon because every counter is needed in the relegation battle. Thanks to a successful series with six unbeaten league games, even though it was against second-placed Marseille, the situation for the newcomer has brightened again.
Then it went home defeat against Bordeaux and last weekend a goalless draw in Nantes. The Gones again did not get past a 1-1 against Strasbourg against their own backdrop. Olympique has been waiting for the next three for four rounds.
The previous race to catch up in the Ligue 1 table has come to a standstill again. Of course, the current eleventh place in no way reflects the claims of the seven-time master of the country. The Metz vs. Lyon’s tip on odds up to 2.18 aims at a hit by Moussa Dembele on the part of the guests.
The attacker is particularly in demand due to the failure of Memphis Depay on the offensive and does this job very well. In two thirds of the twelve competitive games this year, the Under-21 international played for the Equipe Tricolore. The Metz vs Lyon forecast is linked to four units of stake.
Further in-depth analyzes of games in the top French division can easily be found in the Ligue 1 betting section.
Metz started the season as champions of Ligue 2, but it was clear from the start that it would only be against relegation. Due to the limited financial means, the squad is not designed for higher seasonal goals.
The offensive in particular is a permanent construction site in Lorraine. With less than one hit per game, the Graoullys are only the third weakest line of attack in the top tier of football in France.
Habibou Diallo, who has already scored twelve goals, is excluded from this assessment. He is responsible for 50 percent of all goals of the promoted team. Last year, the offensive midfielder was the most important pillar in the promotion project for the two-time winner of the Coupe de France from the 1980s.
In the end, Diallo won the title of the top scorer in Ligue 2. In the encounter between Metz and Lyon, the odds for the next goal of the 24-year-old from Senegal are therefore worth considering.
In addition to the high odds for a goal from Diallo, the provider is currently offering the attractive Unibet new customer bonus.
Until recently, Olympique was one of the best away teams, but recently it was two of only five away bankruptcies.
At least the youngest slump can be put into perspective, since it was done at PSG. A place in French league operations where the number of away wins is known to be within very narrow limits.
Despite the recent lack of success abroad, Lyon continues to rank fourth in the away ranking. The offensive in particular presents itself unerringly in the guest performances. So the attack hits more often than at home in Parc Olympique Lyonnais and takes second place in the away scoring with some distance behind the pursuers.
In only two out of 13 appearances, Lyon have so far not scored their own goals and even the champions have recently scored two goals. However, as mentioned, one of the top strikers in the form of the Dutch Memphis Depay will still be missing due to an injury.
Last weekend, Betrand Traore celebrated his first goal of the season. The Burkina Faso striker has scored 20 goals for OL in the last two seasons, making his losing streak very unusual. Now the knot may have broken.
