Lille Preview – Can Lille continue momentum?

Lille achieved a worthy finish of 4th place at the end of last season’s campaign in Ligue 1 which secured a place in this season’s Europa League and the hosts have picked up where they left off in this new season too as they’re still unbeaten after the first two matches of the new season.

Six wins from their final seven matches of last season helped Lille into a 4th place finish and this new term has seen Lille pick up four points from the first two matches with a 1-1 draw at home with Rennes and then followed by a 1-0 win on the road at Reims.

Results and form have also been impressive at their Stade Pierre-Mauroy too as the hosts have lost just two of their last 20 matches overall, while picking up a total of 15 wins during this sequence, so they look a hard team to beat on home turf at the moment.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Metz Preview – Can Metz cause upset?

Overall, Metz held their own in last season’s Ligue 1 campaign as the visitors finished in 15th place but avoided being dragged into the relegation battle below them as they finished a comfortable 11 points ahead of second from bottom outfit, Amiens, who were relegated.

Metz consolidated their top flight status thanks to a reasonable record on home turf at their Stade Saint-Symphorien as they lost on just five occasions but they’ll be aware of the need to improve upon results away from home after finishing last season with a disappointing record of 3-6-5 9/18.

They do bring a five-match unbeaten run on their travels into this clash at Lille though, so it’ll be interesting to see if Metz can bounce back from their recent 1-0 defeat at home to Monaco against an in-form Lille outfit.
