Lens - Metz betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 15:00 on 14/03/2021 played @ Stade Bollaert-Delelis refereed by Florent Batta

Lens are easily the favourites in the match this Sunday, but we wouldn’t call a Home Win bet at the odds of 1.91 safe, exactly. They are more likely to win than not, but Metz may have a few tricks up their sleeve yet.

The odds are stacked heavily against Metz here, and we can’t see them winning this match. Lens are heavily favoured by most betting predictions – so much so that an away bet is priced at around 4.75.

Lens are coming on the back of a convincing performance in their previous away game at Saint-Étienne . Despite somewhat stronger opposition and home-field disadvantage, they turned a half-time lead into a narrow 2:3 victory which can be considered quite a success given the circumstances.

Metz are coming on the back of a narrow home defeat to Angers SCO. The match could have gone either way, but the opposition displayed better form by grabbing an early lead and maintaining it until the 0:1 finish.

The hosts have been careful not to let their goalscoring stats slip. They’ve scored more than 5 times during the last 3 matches, indicating consistent offensive results.

Lens are holding on to a Europa League spot in the table. Although there is still time to lose it, they also have a chance of qualifying for the Champions League which would be considered success for the hosts.

Metz’s place as 7th in the standings means that they are 3 points behind a UEFA qualification. Getting there is an uphill battle though – most betting predictions are sceptical about their chances at Lens.

Though the odds are clearly in the hosts’ favour, the head-to-head history for this Ligue 1 clash tells a different story. Lens lost the last time these two teams met on the pitch, so an upset is definitely possible.

Our advice is to stay on the safe side and go for the Over 2.5 Goals market. It’s reliable, very probable, and available at odds of 2.30 if you use the 888Sport sportsbook.
