Lille vs Metz Prediction 13 September 2020

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Stadio Pierre Mauroy
Match date: 13.09.2020 at 12:00

Lille, a permanent challenger for the Eurocup zone, will receive on the outsider Metz in the third round of League 1. The favorites of the upcoming match are obvious and we don't think that Metz will be able to create a sensation this time. 

The fourth place in the 2019/20 season allowed Lille to qualify for the group stage of the Europa League. So the level of this team is quite high. In two rounds of the new campaign, the Dogues did without defeat - they shared the points 1: 1 with Rennes, and also defeated Reims 1: 0.

Last year, Metz played in the status of the outsiders, which did not prevent them from maintaining their residence in the elite and finishing away from the relegation zone. But now the Pomegranates may fall prey to "season two syndrome." Their crash 0: 1 from Monaco is not yet critical, but to allow this on an ongoing basis would probably be fraught with consequences.

As for me, Lille will take calm three points due to the difference in class. Metz could still impose a fight at their domestic stadium, but when away from home they very rarely take points from opponents, especially from such status ones. All of the facts we have already mentioned make us think that the hosts are going to win without any real difficulties in the upcoimng match.
