Tip Reasoning

  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in six of the last seven league meetings between these two clubs
  • Lorient have won their last three home games in Ligue 1
  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in four of Lorient’s last five matches as well as each of Metz’s last three games

Lorient have plenty of motivation for the 3pts

Lorient will be looking forward to returning to the more familiar surroundings of the Stade du Moustoir following their 4-1 defeat at Lyon last time out. Metz lost 3-0 in their own backyard to one of Lorient’s relegation rivals Nimes and will be looking for a much-improved performance from their players this Sunday.

Metz claimed a 3-1 win when these two sides locked horns in October but Lorient have won three of the duo’s last seven encounters. When these two sides clash the goals usually follow, with over 2.5 goals being scored in six of their last seven head-to-heads, and we’re expecting more of the same on Sunday.

With three wins from their last six matches, Lorient claim the title of form favourites for this game as Metz have lost three of their last five outings. Both teams have been involved in a number of high-scoring games of late with each of Metz’s last three outings and four of Lorient’s last five fixtures seeing at least three goals scored.

With all of the above in mind, we’re predicting that over 2.5 goals will be scored on Sunday and we have backed Lorient to claim a 3-1 home win. The hosts have far more motivation for the 3pts as they are battling relegation but they also have form in their favour, as well as the home advantage.
