Lorient will welcome Metz to Stade Yves Allainmat - Le Moustoir for a matchday 37 fixture in France Ligue 1. The last meeting on 4th October 2020 ended in a Metz 3-1 win. Both sides have met eight times in the most recent seasons. Lorient has won 4 matches, and Metz triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 3.75 goals, while both teams score 63% of the time.

Lorient's latest fixture against Olympique Lyonnais ended in an away 4-1 loss. I expected more from Le FCL. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. Lorient was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 83rd minute.

Metz's recent game against Nîmes ended in a home 0-3 loss. Les Grenats had plenty of possession, but not so much in the final third of the pitch.

Since the start of the season, Lorient is more dominant at home. They have ten wins out of 19 games on home soil. Although Lorient is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 21% home clean sheets.

Metz has picked up 5 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Metz has collected 1.42 points on average per away game, compared to 1.05 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Metz kept a clean sheet in just 21% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won four consecutive matches. Le FCL is currently unbeaten at home in six games. Since the start of the season, they have just seven home defeats.

Les Grenats is winless in one away game, having tasted defeat on their previous visit. However, they will need plenty of luck to avoid another one against Le FCL.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Lorient wins on average 1.68 points per home game, compared to 1.42 points per away game for Metz. My prediction is Lorient to win.
