Lille to Win

Lille’s victory against PSG is the reverse fixture signals a charged side aiming for the League 1 title. While this fixture pits Christophe Galtier against one of his toughest opponents in the League, it looks easy for the visitors. Lille’s manager has four victors against Metz Manager, Frederic Antonetti. Antonetti has defeated Galtier thrice. There have been three draws between the two managers. Lille has the best away form in the league so far with 10 wins, 4 draws, and 1 loss. Collecting four points from PSG this season is no mean feat, which is why we are backing Lille to win this fixture.

Over 0.5 Goals in Half Time

A tough duel between Antonetti and Galtier will likely be decided by half-time. While Lille comes into this fixture without defender Tiago Djalo who picked a red card in their last game PSG, the visitors are attack-minded. A surprising goal against PSG when Jonathan David found the net in the 20th minute saw then beat the Paris giants. PSG couldn’t put one past Lille goalkeeper, Mike Maignan. Lille has not lost a game in which they have scored first this season, a trend we see continuing in this fixture.

Lille Clean Sheet

Lille is topping the league 1 table for the first in a decade. They have conceded only 9 goals and scored 26 times on the road. With only one away loss so far, a clean sheet for the visitors is a good bet on Betfred. Metz has 5 wins, four draws, and 6 losses in 15 home fixtures so far. A poor home form makes the hosts vulnerable in this fixture.

Metz vs. Lille Match Preview

Here is our preview of the fixture.

Metz

The Maroons come into this fixture without their skipper, John Boye who picked a red card when they lost 4-0 to Monaco on 3rd April 2021. The hosts have no win in their last four fixtures, and they are currently struggling with a leaking defense. They have conceded 9 goals in their last three league games. Metz looks like a side that is fast losing momentum given the lack of a victory in the last four league fixtures. They have conceded 17 and scored 17 at home so far.

Lille

With only 9 goals conceded on the road and one loss, Lille will be a real test for the hosts. The visitors are more focused on winning the league than any other silverware this season. They have lost once in the last five league fixtures. A win against PSG, a draw against Monaco and a win against Marseille proves how much quality Les Dogues bring to Metz. Most importantly, a win on Friday means Lille will go six points clear if PSG and Monaco fail to win their next fixtures.
