Metz vs Lyon Betting Tips - Lyon to Win

Lyon arrive at the Stade Saint-Symphorien in great form having picked up victories in nine of their last 11 matches including each of the last four.

Of course, the former Ligue 1 champions had endured a miserable start to the campaign. Prior to their recent winning spell, Lyon had won only one of their first 14 games of the season. Having slumped to the bottom of the table, Les Gones are now up 11th in Ligue 1.

On the road, Pierre Sage´s side have won four of their last five matches including a 2:1 win at Montpellier earlier this month and they will surely fancy their chances of picking up the points against a struggling Metz side.

Indeed, the home team enters this contest currently in the midst of a ten game winless streak which has seen them lose eight matches. In Ligue 1, László Bölöni´s side have picked up just one point from their last nine league matches with defeat suffered in each of their last four home matches. 

Goals can usually be expected when these sides meet with five of their last six contests seeing BTTS. However, given current form, backing the away side looks the most sensible bet for Friday´s Ligue 1 matchup.

I´m backing Lyon to maintain their superb turn in form with another three points on Friday.
