Lyon - Metz

PICK: Lyon 1st half AH -0,75 @1,81 SBO 5/10

Match between 4th and 17th placed team in French Ligue 1 will be played on Parc Olympique Lyonnais and will start at 17:00.


Lyon is coming to match after another comfortable win in Europa league, where they trashed AZ with 7-1 (11-2 mutual). Genesio rested some key players, Lacazette and Tolisso came in for last 10 minutes and since 78' they added 3 goals. Atmosphere in club is great, they are holding 4th place with two matches less than Bordeaux (2 points behind), and I believe that they will continue with good performances. Only Gonalons and Cornet are absent today.

Metz is coming to match after actually undeserved point against Nantes, where referee gifted them with penalty in last minutes. They were not on the level of Nantes, but they won a point anyway. They will miss Jouffre, Assou-Ekotto, Sarr, Hein, Cohade and their key striker after arrival - DIabate who played only 5 matches and is already second best scorer of the team. 

Lyon will dominate in the match in all aspects of football. Lacazette and Tolisso are coming back to the first lineup, and with high morale I think that we can expect another big result of OL. I was on first half of them on last time as well and instead of 3-0 it was 1-1 after 45 minutes, but they can not miss chances like this every week, they played at home, so I don't believe in any kind of tiredness because of EL match, and I think that they will decide the winner here already in first half.

HT: 1-0 half won
