Live in-play betting – 

Resurgent Lille will host Metz who will be looking to build a winning momentum as the season comes to an end.

Lille are currently 11th in the league table with 43 points from 35 league games.

They are just 1 point behind 9th placed Rennes and a win in this game could see them jump to the top half of the table.

They are currently on a run of 2 consecutive wins and have 3 wins from their last 6 games.

Their home form has been poor – prior to their last home game, they went 5 straight home games without a win, losing four of those fixtures.

Metz are 15th in the league table with 39 points from 34 games.

They are currently 6 points above the drop and will need at least 3 more points to secure their safety this season.

They have lost 4 of their last 6 league games despite winning their last league game.

Their away form is a little desperate – they have 8 losses from their last 10 away games, and the other two have been draws.

Bookmakers recognize Metz’ poor away form and make Lille strong odds-on favourites to come out on top in this tie (1.66).
