Metz vs Lille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 8 August 2021
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Municipal Saint-Symphorien
Lille are the defending champions of this tournament, and with another Super Cup win last week, they have high confidence. They are usually the simplest favorite this Sunday to print three points on the board, against Metz wrestling.
PSG had almost every title holder in France until last season. They are automatic favorites for any competition they enter. Honestly, the lack of competition makes football in the country stupid.
However, Lille has other plans. Despite problems with the professionals not giving them a chance, they worked hard to chase the Parisians, and on the final day of the game, they were defeated by a major league leader Neymar Jr and his team.
Defense is an important part of making this possible for those with a reputation. In all competitions, they have conceded just 23 goals (at least in one game), with the exception of the Parisians, who no other team has managed to keep under 40.
Note that they lost only three times in the entire process.
Meanwhile, Metz must pay for ten places, and they have won 12 games in the campaign. They also ended their season with a bad season, and their only win since March came to Dijon.
Also, they also have a poor h2h record against ruling champions.
By the way, expect a win for Lille this Sunday.
