Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Lille will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Reims when they host Metz at their Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Matchday 3. Les Dogues are eager to regain their spot in the Champions League, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at les Grenats in Sunday’s football match. The good news for the hosts is that Reinildo Mandava returns to contention after serving his ban against Reims.
A man to watch in the home team will be Jonathan Bamba, who has been in a splendid form at the start of the season. Metz, on the other hand, kicked off the new Ligue 1 campaign with a 1-0 defeat to Monaco. Seeing that Metz boss Vincent Hognon has some selection worries ahead of the trip to Lille, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match.
