It's still early days in the new Ligue 1 season, but Lille aim to continue where they left off before the two-week interval. They host Metz, who lost their only top-flight game of the new campaign against Monaco, despite enjoying an impressive pre-season.

Will they manage to bounce back away from home, against a side with genuine Champions League aspirations? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Lille vs Metz Betting Tips

Despite the inconvenience an international break presents, Lille target stringing together back-to-back victories this weekend. After a narrow 1-0 win over Stade de Reims on August 30, they want to avoid slipping up as they did against Stade Rennais on the opening weekend.

It only takes a split second for players' concentration levels to drop and willing opponents can capitalise. Eduardo Camavinga and Damien Da Silva combined to devastating effect in the second-half, leaving their hosts stunned.

Metz know the feeling. Transfer-linked teenager Benoit Badiashile broke the deadlock midway through the first-half with a real striker's finish. Had they defended the inswinging free-kick better, the central defender wouldn't have been unmarked in the area to fire goalwards.

It'll be interesting to see whether Vincent Hognon makes any changes to his side, after a two-week break between competitive matches. Papa Ndiaga Yade was a second-half substitute in their aforementioned defeat and impressed, so assuming he's fit to start, the 20-year-old should be rewarded accordingly.

After a successful loan spell last term, Thierry Ambrose joined in a £1.8m deal from Manchester City and was similarly used off the bench on August 30. He'll be eager to feature and score his first Ligue 1 goal this weekend.

In their last five top-flight matches, Lille have four clean sheets. They'll expect another solid defensive display at home here.

Lille vs Metz Correct Score Predictions

There was a 15-point difference between them when play was ended in March and Lille should seize the opportunity to build on their recent form. Metz pose problems and shouldn't be overlooked, but they're underdogs for a reason.
