Metz FC vs Olympique Lyon Prediction, Betting Tips and Odds | 23 FEBRUARY 2024

Olympique Lyon can look back to the last few months and feel encouraged with their efforts after successfully climbing off the relegation zone and now getting into mid-table. Earlier in the season, this was almost impossible, but the team worked hard and did not give up and now they are heading towards the end of the season with lots of motivation to even qualify for European competition next season. 

Amidst the struggles, Metz FC will have no sympathies when they entertain Olympique Lyon at the Stade Saint Symphorien. In what was described as a dramatic turn of events, Metz FC now find themselves in the relegation zone while their opponents are in safety. Metz FC expect to go against an in-form and motivated Olympique Lyon team and while they can't find confidence in their recent form, they will hope to get the fans’ support behind them as they try to find a positive end to this game.

There's no indication to suggest that Metz FC are coming off their present struggles anytime soon. They have gone from being a mid-table side to a relegation-threatened team and they have their recent form to thank for that. 

Metz FC have been so poor that they have not won a single league game since November last year. Since then they have lost 10 matches and drew 1. In their last game, they played away from home against Montpellier and the end result was another defeat.

It was an easy game for Montpellier last weekend as they ran Metz FC to the ground in a 3-0 defeat. Issiaga Sylla, Modibo Sagnan and Teji Savanier were all on target and Metz FC were given no chance during the game. According to the stats, Metz FC managed to take 46% possession and register 4 shots on target before the end of the game.

Metz FC are now haunted by the horrors of the relegation battle as they are currently in 17th with 17 points from 22 matches played.

Hardwork and belief. That's all Olympique Lyon has been about for the past couple of months. Despite having one of their poorest starts to the season, Olympique Lyon are now back in the picture chasing big dreams.

Their fortunes changed after the defeat to Olympique Marseille back in December last year. After that, they went on a 4-match win streak and ultimately won 7 of their last 9 games in all competitions.

Olympique Lyon's fight continued in their last match and they were rewarded with a win against OGC Nice. It was a hard-fought victory and Orel Mangala scored the important goal that separated both sides at the end. 

Alexandre Lacazette has 11 goals in what was regarded as the worst season for Olympique Lyon and he is currently leading the club back to safety. With a lot of stability now back, we can expect him to score more goals and maybe they might be right on time before the European ship sails.

Olympique Lyon are now in 11th spot with 25 points from 22 matches played.

Olympique Lyon have beaten Metz FC 14 times in their last 20 meetings. Metz FC managed to win 4 times and then they drew twice.

It's believed that when a team's confidence grows well enough, it is difficult to control. At the moment, Olympique Lyon are looking bright and sharp and Metz FC are looking lost and confused. It's all in the hands of Olympique Lyon now and they are in a strong position to decide how this game ends.

On the analysis, Metz FC have not kept a clean sheet in their last 4 matches against Olympique Lyon while Olympique Lyon have not kept a clean sheet in their last 6. 

Both teams scored in 5 of their last 6 matches and also played more than 10.5 corners in those 5 games.
