Metz vs Lille Predictions


Lille are full of confidence and have a great away record in Ligue 1. I am backing Lille to beat Metz and stay top of the table.

  • Metz have lost by 2+ goals in their last 2 matches (Ligue 1).
  • Metz have failed to score in their last 2 matches (all competitions).
  • Metz have failed to score in 3 of their last 4 matches against Lille (Ligue 1).
  • Lille have won 3 of their last 4 matches against Metz (Ligue 1).
  • Lille have won 8 of their last 9 away matches (Ligue 1).

Head to Head


Lille have a 23-18 advantage against Metz with 15 draws in 56 matches.

Lille have won three of the last four meetings including 1-0 at home in September.

Metz Form


Metz have failed to win in their last four matches in Ligue 1. They lost 1-0 against Angers before a 2-2 draw in Lens.

Frédéric Antonetti’s side lost 3-1 at home against Rennes despite playing against 10 men for 40 minutes. Metz were then thrashed 4-0 in Monaco.

Metz took on Monaco again in the Coupe de France on Tuesday. They were outplayed once more in a 0-0 draw, taking it to a penalty shootout where they went down 5-4.

Metz Injuries & Team News


Left back Manuel Cabit is unavailable with striker Ibrahima Niane a few weeks away from returning from injury.

Winger Warren Tchimbembé is out for the rest of the season with a meniscal injury.

Lille Form


Lille sit three points clear of PSG at the top of Ligue 1. They lost 3-0 at PSG in the Coupe de France with a second string side.

Christophe Galtier’s side returned to Ligue 1 with a 2-1 home defeat to Nimes. They couldn’t turn 73% possession into any points at Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

Lille’s last match was a crucial 1-0 win at PSG. Jonathan David scored the winner in a game where they were understandably on the back foot for large periods.

Lille Injuries & Team News


Right back Tiago Djaló is suspended.

Right back Zeki Celik and striker Yusuf Yazici tested positive for COVID-19 and are doubtful.

Canadian striker Jonathan David is out with an ankle injury.
