Lorient - Metz betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 20:00 on 16/05/2021 played @ Stade Yves Allainmat-Le Moustoir refereed by Florent Batta

The home team is the obvious choice for anyone looking to bet on favourites. The match is not completely one-sided, though, which is why you may actually get worthwhile returns.

This one has Home Win written all over it. The hosts are expected to grab a firm hold of the proceedings and Metz will be left with slim pickings in this match.

Lorient are coming off from a crushing 4:1 home loss against Olympique Lyonnais in the previous round. They managed an even score up until the 45-minute mark, but it all fell apart after that. To be fair, they were up against a vastly superior team, so the previous match can’t be reliably used to judge their form.

Lorient played in the previous round as hosts, which ended in a crushing 0:3 defeat. They scraped together a draw at half-time despite the fact they were considered underdogs, but their opponents Nîmes completely dominated the second half.

Lorient have a notably poor defensive record when it comes to playing as visitors. We’re mostly referring to the 5 conceded goals over their latest 3 away games. They are playing as hosts this time around, but you should be aware before you put down any money.

The visitors’ main concern will be cutting down the concession rate. They conceded more than 5 times in their latest 3 matches, and bucking the trend will be a great step in the right direction.

With just 38 points earned so far, the home team are not far above the relegation zone. While they should be able to secure a win this Sunday, the lower-placed teams will be highly motivated to catch up – though whether they’ll have enough time is a different question altogether.

Surprisingly enough, the hosts already lost to Metz once this season. This came as a bit of an upset, to say the least, considering they are widely believed to be the stronger team.

Fortunately, both teams will be able to give their all this Sunday. Neither squad has been affected by injuries or suspensions, allowing the coaches to work with all the tools at their disposal.

The odds prices for this matchup ate tricky to find real value in, so it’s not a selection for the faint of heart. Your best bet is an Over 3.5 Goals wager at odds of 3.40. It’s clearly not a safe bet but offers better betting value than any other market.

Betting tip (stake: 3/10): Over 3,5 goals 3.40 at bet365
Correct score prediction: 2:2
