France Ligue 1 -- Lille vs Metz Game Preview


Lille are going up against guests Metz at Stade Pierre-Mauroy in the Ligue 1 clash on Friday.

Lille have endured an underwhelming campaign so far and are currently 10th in the league table with 35 points from 24 games. They have won 9 times in the league while drawing on 8 and losing on 7 other occasions. Lille returned to winning ways in Ligue 1 as they edged out Montpellier 1-0 away from home last weekend. Prior to that, the defending champions were on a two-game losing streak, conceding seven goals and scoring just once over both games.

Metz reside at the 19th position on the table with only 20 points. Of the 18 matches played, they won only 4 games while drawing on 8 and losing on a dozen other occasions. Metz continue to struggle for form as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Marseille on home turf in their last outing. Before that, they shared a goalless draw with Troyes. Their total goals to conceding ratio stands at 25:45 so far in the league.

Buoyed by their victory over Montpellier last time out, Metz will head into the game with renewed confidence and will fancy their chances against a struggling Metz side. Therefore predict a one-sided affair with the hosts coming away with all three points.
