Metz vs Lorient team news

Metz

Six losses in a row in Ligue 1 have put Metz right on the cusp of relegation zone and they desperately need a win to get them away from it, at least for a little while. On the bright side, the team has done well in the French Cup, so their fans can hope that Metz can transform that form into their league matches.

Meanwhile, Christophe Herelle is suspended for this game, while Ablie Jallow and Lamine Camara are still at international duty.

Predicted LineupOukidja – Colin, Cande, Traore, Udol – N'Doram – Kerkhof, N'Duquidi, Jacques, Sabaly – Mikautadze

Lorient

With just two wins this season in Ligue 1, Lorient have been struggling and they find themselves in the last place in the standings. Their winless streak is now at 10 games in a row, 11 if we include Coupe de France.

Meanwhile, Formose Mendy, Alfred Gomis, Gedeon Kalulu, Bamba Dieng, and Darlin Yongwa are with their national teams, while Lorient will also be without injured Quentin Boisgard, Benjamin Mendy, and Aiyegun Tosin.

Predicted Lineup: Mvogo – Mouyokolo, Pelon, Toure – Carioca, Owaga, Abergel, Le Bris – Ponceau, Kari, Kroupi

Player to watch: Cheikh Tidiane Sabaly

While the Senegalese forward only has 3 goals in Ligue 1 this season, that's enough to make him Metz's top scorer this season, along with Jallow. So, with Metz hosting one of their fellow strugglers, they will rely on Sabaly to help them win the much-needed points.
