Metz Preview – Can Metz produce shock?

Although they achieved a mid-table finish at the end of last season’s Ligue 1 campaign, Sunday’s hosts, Metz, know that they can ill-afford a repeat of their miserable run of poor results towards the end of last term this time around.

Metz finished in a comfortable mid-table position of 10th last season but having managed to win just one of their final 11 games of the season, the hosts will be keen to produce more consistent displays this term.

However, an opening day home fixture with last season’s title-winners, Lille, looks to be a tough task for Metz who failed to win any of their last 10 home games, losing eight of these which included a 2-0 defeat to Lille.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Lille Preview – Can Lille defend title?

With just one defeat from their last 20 matches of last season, Lille thoroughly deserved their Ligue 1 title last term and they also registered a 1-0 win away from home at PSG on their way to lifting the domestic top flight title as well.

14 wins out of these 20 games saw Lille find a way to win rather than draw and this proved to be decisive in the visitors claiming top spot, while also winning 12 of their last 13 away matches so this should give them plenty of confidence away at Metz this Sunday.

Even more impressive was the fact that Lille kept a total of nine clean sheets on their travels within this period as well, and this could be key for Sunday’s encounter.
