Team Analysis
Metz is currently in a tumultuous position, experiencing eight losses and two draws in their last ten matches across diverse competitions. Currently, they hold the second to the last position in the Ligue 1 standings. The safe position in the league lies a daunting five points away, with seemingly little hope for better days under the guidance of Laszlo Boloni and his men. Boloni's team has unfortunately not tasted victory in ten consecutive games across all competitions. Their most recent failure transpired on Sunday, with Metz suffering a 0-3 defeat in an away match against Montpellier.

In contrast, Lyon is on a winning streak, entering this game after achieving four straight wins across multiple competitions. Despite encountering a challenging home game against Nice the previous Friday, they successfully secured a 1-0 victory, with a lone shot on target within 90 minutes of play at Groupama Stadium. Pierre Sage's men endured 20 shots on the opposite end, six of which went on target. Goalkeeper Anthony Lopes emerged the hero of the game. Lyon, currently three points above the danger zone, visits Stade Saint-Symphorien to challenge Metz, who are fighting against relegation, in the first game of Matchday No 23.

Lyon and Metz reached a draw in a 1-1 stalemate during their rematch in November of last year at Groupama Stadium. Lyon emerged victorious only once out of the past five encounters with Les Grenats. All but one out of the previous six head-to-head matches between these competitors saw both teams score.

Odds Analysis
Despite their current predicament, Metz has faced many challenges recently. Over the last ten matches in all competitions, they have witnessed eight losses and two draws. Les Grenats only managed to score twice in the last five Ligue 1 games. In addition, they scored just two goals during the past five home matches across all competitions. Lyon's goalkeeper, Anthony Lopes, is currently in sterling form, having remarkably saved the day in a clean-sheet victory over Nice just seven days ago. Odds are predicting a win for Lyon, securing their fifth consecutive victory across all competitions.

Alternatively, aiming to avoid another defeat while five points behind the safe zone, Metz will likely aim to anchor a very nervous game with few chances on either side, mirroring the drawn return fixture which concluded in a 1-1 draw. Experts predict that this game will not exceed 2.5 goals.

Pick: Under 2.5 goals
