Lyon vs Metz Prediction:

Asian handicap Lyon vs Metz Prediction:

Handicap Odds: 1.5

With home advantage, Lyon is still a team that is more appreciated than Metz in this match through a handicap of 1.5. Obviously, the difference in class and people will take the opportunity for the away team to surprise the top team is relatively impossible. Lyon is still showing a very strong style thanks to the ability to control the game very well and a superb attack that makes it this team easy to concretize their strength.

A task too difficult for Metz especially when the away team is still struggling too hard this season. In addition, Lyon’s home field has always been a danger to any team in Ligue 1 in recent years. The fact also shows that Lyon has not once fallen at his mecca this season. An impressive record and impressive enough to make Metz worry when the guests only got exactly 2 wins in 9 previous trips away from home.

The great advantage of both the field and the squad will give Lyon a completely overwhelming posture of Metz and a relatively easy victory in the middle of this week.

In the next match,  Lyon Team is considered the superior team when handicapping the other team.  

→ From the odds by CMD368 bookmaker, the best pick: Lyon -0.5 HT, Lyon -1.5 FT

Over Under  

Odds: 3.0

1 point gained against Rennes helps Lyon temporarily get 40 points after 19 rounds, exactly 1 point ahead of defending champions PSG. Obviously, things are still very open if Lyon can remain focused for the time being and this is the time when they need to show their position.

Meanwhile, with Metz, only 2 wins in the last 6 rounds are putting the visitors in a relatively difficult position. Only 25 points are gained after 19 games played, which makes them have to take 12th place in the standings and will have to work a lot to make a breakthrough this season.

However, having to march to Lyon’s field in the next round will still be an overwhelming task for Metz. It will be a match against the posture where the home team will completely overwhelm and likely many goals will be scored.

Therefore, our expert believes that Over will be optimal for investors in the next 90 minutes.
