Metz v Lorient Match Preview
Following a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of AS Monaco, Metz will be eager to do well in front of their home fans on Matchday 18. Les Grenats have struggled in recent weeks and a porous backline is the reason why they are stuck in relegation trouble. However, the upcoming encounter against Lorient could be a chance for them to turn the page.
Les Merlus are on a six-game winless streak and lost to Nantes at home last time out. While Metz have not done well in recent memory, Lorient have performed worse than their hosts. They have scored just once in the last six games which clearly shows why there is so much pressure on their defense week in week out.
Metz v Lorient Team News
Kevin N’Doram, Habib Maiga, Matthieu Udol and Manuel Cabit are all out injured for the hosts.
