Lyon v Metz Match preview

There was yet another episode of crowd trouble after Les Gones’ Coupe de France game against Paris FC was suspended. This is the second time the Rhone giants have had a game abandoned. A few weeks ago, they were deduced one point in Ligue 1 due to crowd violence in the game against Marseille.

Peter Bosz’s men have been undefeated at home in the last 19 league games but are currently in 13th place in the league standings and eight points behind Rennes who are occupying the last Champions League qualification berth. While they haven’t lost at home for almost a year, Les Gones have not won at home since October.

Metz crashed out of Coupe de France at the hands of fourth tier Bergerac Perigord. The elimination was shocking for Frederic Antonetti’s men who now have to focus on avoiding the drop. Following a 4-1 win over Lorient, the away side would be hoping for a better trip to Rhone.

Bosz will be unable to call upon the services of Lenny Pintor, Jason Denayer and Sinaly Diomande. However, Lucas Paqueta returns from suspension and could be given the nod ahead of Karl Toko Ekambi or Xherdan Shaqiri.

For the away side, Vincent Pajot and Pape Sarr are suspended while Manuel Cabit and Matthieu Udol are ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Lyon possible starting lineup:
Lopes; Dubois, Boateng, Da Silva, Emerson; Caqueret, Guimaraes; Paqueta, Aouar, Ekambi; Dembele

Metz possible starting lineup:
Oukidja; Jemerson, Kouyate, Bronn; Centonze, Maiga, Traore, Delaine; De Preville, Boulaya; Niane
