Lyon – Metz – Betting Prediction Review for 17.01.2021

Ligue 1 leaders Olympique Lyonnais host Metz at the Groupama Stadium in a match from
the 20th round of the competition. That’s a fine moment to preview this fixture in our
football betting tips this weekend. Here we go!
Surprising or not, Olympique Lyonnais are leaders in the Ligue 1 after 19 matches played.
Les Gones have 40 points won which puts them one point ahead of the champions PSG.
The Parisian club remains favourite for the title, of course – but make no mistake, Lyonnais
are not going to give up just like that.
What’s impressive is that Rudi Garcia’s team lost just one game since the beginning of the
season – against Montpellier in the middle of September. This makes it few months without
losing for Olympique Lyonnais.
In their last game Les Gones lost two points, though. Garcia’s team faced Rennes away
from home, but only won a point with a 2-2 draw at the Roazhon Park. Depay and Denayer
scored for the leaders.
Metz are sitting at 12th place in the Ligue 1 after games played so far. They have 25 points
won and they are just two points behind Bordeaux and the Top 10. This is not a bad
season for them so far.
Just like Olympique Lyonnais, Metz made a draw in their last game. Frederic Antonetti’s
team hosted Nice at home, but this match ended 1-1. John Boye provided a point for Metz
with an equalising goal in the 79th minute.
That’s the football betting tips this weekend for the Ligue 1 clash between Olympique
Lyonnais and Metz at the Groupama Stadium. If they want to remain on top, Les Gones
must win this one. PSG are breathing in their neck, so the three points are a must here.
Let’s see if they can do it or not.
