Recommended bets

Les Grenats home form suggests they are unlikely to get anything from the game here. They have picked up just three points from their last six Ligue 1 home matches here at the Stade Saint-Symphorien. In contrast, Les Gones have picked up nine points from their last six Ligue 1 matches on the road. Therefore, 101 Great Goals’ prediction for this match is FC Metz 0-1 Olympique Lyonnais and is available at odds of 8.5/1.

Alternatively, you can bet on any Metz win at 6.5/1 against Les Gones at home on Sunday.

Or, back any away win for Lyon at 1.45/1 here at the Stade Saint-Symphorien.

You can find odds of 4.75/1 for any draw between Metz and Lyon on Sunday.

Match Preview

The Maroons welcome Olympique Lyonnais to the Stade Saint-Symphorien on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. Metz are six points from the Relegation Play-Off place and eight from outright safety with just nine points left to play for. They are in the ‘must-win’ stage now for every remaining game and even that may not be enough. Lyon will be hoping a strong end of the season can close the gap on those above them to sneak into contention for the UEFA Europa Conference League place next season.

FC Metz come into the match on a run of 14 league games without a win. They have picked up two points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Les Graoullys shared the points in their last league match away to Montpellier HSC, in a four-goal thriller. Expected goals of 2.0 to 1.3 in favour of Montpellier indicates Metz were a little fortunate to escape from the game with a point. Although, having led 0-2 with just ten minutes to play, this will very much feel like two points dropped rather than a point earned. The final score of the match was 2-2.

Nicolas de Préville is FC Metz’s top scorer with five goals in Ligue 1 this season but has only one goal in 2022. He is 4.2/1 to score against Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday.

Their opponent on Sunday, Olympique Lyonnais, come into the match on a run of two wins in a row. They have picked up 13 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Kids won their last league match away to Olympique Marseille. Expected goals of 2.7 to 1.3 in favour of Lyon indicates it was likely a fair result. Marseille dominated the first half with Lyon barely creating a meaningful chance in the first half. Castello Lukeba scored against the run of play with Lyon picking L’OM off when chasing the game with two more goals. The final score of the match was 0-3.

Moussa Dembele got the second goal here for Olympique Lyonnais and is their top scorer with seventeen goals in Ligue 1 this season. He is the 1.83/1 favourite to score against FC Metz on Sunday.

FC Metz team news

Fabien Centonze went down injured just ten minutes into the match against Lyon. William Mikelbrencis replaced him and is likely to start in his absence here after grabbing an assist on Metz’s second goal. Manuel Cabit (traffic accident) and Matthieu Udol (cruciate ligament) will also be unavailable for The Maroons due to injury on Sunday.

FC Metz may look to make a few unforced changes to the side who drew against Montpellier HSC in their last league match. Louis Mafouta’s goal from the bench will have the manager considering him for a start here.

Olympique Lyonnais team news

Moussa Dembélé received a booking around the hour mark against Marseille for a foul. As he has now accumulated five yellow cards this season, Dembélé will be unavailable for Lyon here due to suspension. Injuries will rule out Rayan Cherki (metatarsal fracture) and Sinaly Diomandé (ankle surgery) for the trip to the Stade Saint-Symphorien.

They are unlikely to make any further unforced changes to the side that beat Olympique Marseille in their last league outing.
