Olympique Lyon vs Metz – Ligue 1 Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

 

Ligue 1 continues this weekend on Sunday, the 17th of January 2021 as Olympique Lyon vs. Metz kicks-off at 21:00 (GMT+1) on Matchday 20 at Parc Olympique Lyonnais.

 

Olympique Lyon picked up a 2-2 draw against Rennes on Matchday 19. Lyon found themselves two goals down in the early minutes of the second half after goals from Rennes’ Clement Grenier (20’) and Benjamin Bourigeaud (55’). But late goals from Memphis Depay (79’) and Jason Denayer (82’) saw Lyon complete their come-back and pick up a point from the tie. They remain unbeaten in six games: WDWWWD and Rudi Garcia will be looking for keep the unbeaten run going in order to remain at the top of the table – at least, a point clear of the closest rival, PSG. Lyon have 40 points and a GD of +21 after 11W, 7D & 1L. A 4—3—3 formation from the French coach is expected when he takes on Metz this weekend. Karl Toko Ekambi, Memphis Depay and Kadewere are tipped to lead the attack as a trio once more. All three will be looking for a goal or two when Lyon who have no injury worries except for Moussa Dembele (fractured arm) make their 20th Ligue 1 appearance of the season.

 

FC Metz picked up a 1-1 draw against Nice in their last Ligue 1 game. They have 25 points and are 12th on the Ligue 1 standings with 6W, 7D & 6L. They have scored 20 goals and conceded 18, leaving them with a GD of +2. Coach Frédéric Antonetti’s side will be looking for a victory to complement last weekend’s result as he hopes to return to winning ways. Their current form reads; DWWLDD. We anticipate a defensive 5—4—1 formation from the 59-year-old French man. Centre forward, Ibrahima Niane is sidelined with a cruciate ligament rupture while Manuel Cabit was involved in a traffic accident. Both players are ruled out of this tie.

 

The last time they met was in December, 2020 and it ended in a 3-1 victory for Lyon. Earlier in February 2020, Lyon defeated Metz, 2-0. An earlier encounter between these two sides in October 2019 ended in a 2-0 victory for Lyon.

 

This highly anticipated match is expected to end in a 2-0 victory for Lyon.
