Lorient v Metz Betting Tips and Predictions

On this fine Friday evening  we’ll take a trip across the Channel to France, to check out Lorient v Metz. We’ve found a great match between two teams that are top contenders for promotion to Ligue 1. Metz appears to gave a firm grip of the league; however, Lorient is playing really well this season and seems set to put up a good fight today. There are some very important points in Ligue 2 today at stake.

Our Prediction For This Game: 

This is an important game for both teams and they will give it all today to keep their position in the Ligue 2. Today’s points will be valuable… and with the great attacking players they both have, today’s bet will be both teams to score. 888sport gives us odds of 1.75  for that, and we’ll invest 2 units today.


After 11 games, Lorient is in 4th place with 21 points. They had a great start to the season, and they need points today if they want to keep up with the top runners and have a chance to advance to Ligue 1 next year. They started off with 8 games without defeat. The first defeat came in the 9th game away, against US Orleans. Today they will give it their all to get at least one point.


Metz is by far the best team in Ligue 2 so far. They have 25 points out of 11 games and have a tight grip on the first place. We will see them in Ligue 1 next year for sure. Diallo has scored 11 goals this season and is the top scorer in Ligue 2, and he will make sure he scores one or two today. Metz is the favourite to win today’s game, but Lorient is very good at home, so we won’t take any chances and play BTTS today.

Reason for and against the tip:

 Metz have scored in 9 out of their last 10 away games.

 Lorient is very good at home.

✓ There are important points at stakes today for both teams.
