Lyon would look to continue their bid to qualify for the Champions League next season when they face Metz in this game.
The visitors are seven points away from the last Champions League spot but they can get in if they can put together a fine run of form between now and the end of the season.
Metz is just two points off the relegation playoff zone and they have struggled with no wins from their last three league games and they would be hoping that home support would help them beat Lyon in this game.
Lyon hasn’t won any of their last four league games with two losses and two draws coming along the way, they would be keen to get back to winning ways here else they risk losing more ground in their pursuit of the top three.
Vincent Pajot would miss this game for the host because of a red card suspension, while Memphis Depay, Youssouf Kone, Jeff Reine-Adelaide, and Oumar Solet would miss this game for Lyon.
