Metz vs Lille 08.08.2021
Metz will have a tough task challenging last season’s champions on an opening match of the new season. Though they come into this game on the back of consecutive wins in their friendly matches, they will have to be on a whole different level to get something out of this match.
On the other hand, Lille made history as they broke Paris Saint-Germain’s dominance to lift the Ligue 1 trophy last season, and to follow it with the recent Super Cup Final triumph over Paris Saint-Germain shows how fantastic they have become. As the current champions, Gourvennec Jocelyn’s men will hope to start the Ligue 1 title defense in a positive direction.
As a result, we fancy the recent champions of France League 1 to exhibit their dominance over Metz at the end of this match.
