The Best Lille vs Metz Ligue Predictions

Football Whispers always aims to provide our readers with the best Ligue 1 predictions, preview and analysis of our extensively researched tips. Our best two predictions for Lille vs Met are as follows:

Lille to win first half @ 19/20 (1.95)

Lille is our pick to win the first half of this game. Metz is in worse form than Lille and defeating Lille, a team that just won away from home will not be easy. The visitors have been largely inconsistent, failing to win their last three games. Lille never lost to Metz in the last six meetings, winning three games within that run.

Goals on one side @33/50 (1.66)

There is a high probability we will have goals on only one end of the pitch in this game. We premise this prediction on the fact that Metz has been struggling to score goals lately and could find it difficult scoring away from home.

Lille vs Metz Ligue 1 Game Preview and Lineups

Historically, Lille has been the better side in this fixture. The hosts bagged 12 wins in the last 20 meetings and only lost to Metz twice within that run. At the coaching level, the managers of both sides have had four encounters, two of which ended square. Both head coaches boast one victory against each other, a stat that makes this game even more interesting for those who will be watching.

Moreover, Lille comes to this game with a run of 3W, 1D and 2L in their last Ligue 1 matches. They recovered from a two-match losing streak to defeat 1-0. This home fixture, therefore, presents Lille with a chance to get two wins in Ligue 1 since December. The fact that Lille has always bossed this matchup gives the hosts hopes in this game.

The visitors are currently ranked second last in Ligue, a position that puts them under pressure in a quest for survival. A draw will be good enough to keep survival hopes alive but a win will most welcome for Metz as it could see them go above the red zone on Friday night.

Lille predicted lineup: Jardim, Celik, Fonte, Botman, Djalo, Xeka, Gudmundsson, Bamba, Andre, Gomes and David.

Metz predicted lineup: Calillard, Delaine, Bronn, Kouyate, Amadou, Cande, Maiga, Pajot, Traore, Boulaya and Mafouta.
