Lorient to win

We fancy Lorient to win the Sunday fixture against Metz after showing some improvements at home. The hosts are yet to lose a home fixture in their last four games, winning three and drawing one. Two of Lorient’s three home victories in the last four games have been clean sheets. And despite losing the reverse fixture to Metz, the hosts have an impressive h2h comparison against the visitors. Moreover, Lorient manager, Christophe Pelissier should fancy a second victory against Metz manager in the second meeting between the two tacticians.

Victory for Lorient in both halves

The three home victories for Lorient in the last three home fixtures were decided in the first half. In this game, we are again backing the hosts to repeat a similar feat of scoring early in the game. It is the only way they can get a win and gather more safety points going into the final game of the season. The fact that Metz has never defeated Lorient on the latter’s home ground is another interesting stat that will play significance in this game.

Lorient to net first

The third tip crowns our first two. Lorient will win full-time. Also, noting that they will defeat Metz in both halves regardless of whether Metz scores, we are backing the hosts to open the score sheet on Sunday.

Lorient vs Metz game preview: Lorient Risk relegation is they slip further

Lorient is fighting for survival but Metz is safe with 46 points at 10th position after 36 games. Can the hosts survive the drop?

Lorient

Lorient has been staring at a possible relegation for some time now. However, recent results show glimpses of a home resurgence. Another victory against Metz on Sunday will make it four consecutive victories in four home games. In the last four home fixtures, Lorient has conceded only two goals. Another home advantage should see them put several goals past Metz defence.

Metz

Metz has the seventh-best away record of 7 victories, 6 draws and 5 losses. However, with no victory at Lorient in the last 14 meetings, the visitors face a challenge that would be difficult to overcome. Metz manager is yet to defeat his Sunday host, and doing that on the road against a team that has won the last three home fixtures will require tactical magic.
