Franck Haise managed to find communication with his players since the first days in the team and it affected team's performance and results. In ten rounds of the current season Blood and Golds are at the second spot in the standings, nine points behind PSG.
After two consecutive victories over Marseille (3:2) and Reims (2:0) hosts suffered a defeat to Montpellier (0:1).
Haidara won't play in the game due to a groin injury.
Metz put up a good performance in the previous season. But at the start of the current one team recorded only one victory over Brest (2:1) and three draws, which earned them six points and an 18th spot in the standings.
In the most recent match visitors failed to put up a fight against Rennes (0:3).
Cabit, Niakate and Joseph won't play in the match.

In 4 out of 5 most recent head-to-head matches both teams scored
At the start of the tournament Metz had some hope for a success, but now team is in a terrible form and a spot in the relegation zone is fully deserved. Lens got off to a great start, but it will be extremely hard to keep the second spot.
We think that hosts will pick up three points due to their discipline, class and a huge motivation.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1) on Lens

We are not expecting many goal opportunities, because teams are not perfect on offense, but defenders are playing well. We think that the outcome will be decided by one or two goals.
Our second bet is on total under 2,5 goals
