Lens to get all points

We are predicting victory for Lens in this fixture. The hosts are by far the better side and should not struggle to score goals against Metz. On the other hand, Metz has struggled with poor defending and tacking. The visitors have leaked an average of 2.2 goals in ten games and scored goals averaging 1.1 goals in as many games. The hosts average 1.6 goals and have leaked an average of 1.1 goals.

Over 2.5

Our second prediction for Lens vs Metz is more than two goals at full-time. The visitors have had costly defensively mishaps. We think Lens will score at least two goals in this game. And because Metz has only failed to score against Lens only once in the last five games, the visitors will likely score a goal. In the last five meetings, Metz scored 7 goals while Lens had 3 goals.

Lens to score the first match goal

Our last pick for this game backs Lens to open the scoring. They are the better side in this game. Lens is currently 2nd on the Ligue 1 table, a position they can only maintain by turning up in this game against Metz. Mets are third last in the table after ten games.

Game Preview: Lens Looking to Maintain Great Momentum

Lens has beaten many expectations to emerge a top four contender after 10 games. However, with 2W, 2D and 1L on home soil, the hosts haven’t impressed in front of their fans at Stade Bollaert-Delelis. They are currently ranked 12th on home record, a performance that threatens their good run. On the other hand, Metz is a struggling outfit right now. The visitors have 1W, 1D and 3L away from home. Moreover, Metz has 6 goals and conceded 11 goals away from home so far. Metz struggles with defending are something that Lens should exploit in this game. The hosts have scored 7 and leaked only 5 goals in five home matches. A win for Lens will keep them in the second spot or top four at the very least. A loss for Metz will condemn them to the red zone, so we expect a tough encounter on Sunday. Notably, Metz recorded 1W and 1D against Lens season. The visitors have never lost to Lens in the last five meetings.
