Lens has been going downhill lately, having failed to win a single victory in the last four matches of the championship, losing to such strong teams as PSG And Monaco. The team's defensive strategy does not seem to be effective enough: in the last four matches it conceded 10 goals. The constant number of goals scored and conceded in their matches indicates a penchant for high-scoring matches.
Metz, on the contrary, shows a slightly better shape than Lance. They tied with such strong teams as "Marseilles" And "Reims", and defeated "Clermont". Even though they are not in the best shape, they are a force to be reckoned with.
If you look at the historical meetings between these teams, you can see that the results were mixed. If in one of the fights Lance won a dominant victory with a score of 4:1, then most matches ended in a draw or in a bitter fight.
Given recent form and previous meetings, the upcoming match is likely to be competitive. Statistics indicate a high probability of the game being a high-scoring game, especially given the recent performances of both teams.
Event: Match outcome
Bid: Draw, CF 4. 4
Why: Lens have been unable to win against formidable opponents in recent matches and their defense is particularly leaky, conceding 10 goals in their last 4 matches. Although Metz have performed slightly better, winning and drawing twice, it is clear that neither team is dominant. Given their past meetings and current form, a draw is a likely result.
Event: Total goals
Bid: Total goals over 1.5, EF 1.2
Why: Both teams are consistently involved in matches where more than 1.5 goals are scored. This can be seen in their recent form, with matches typically scoring at least 2 goals.
Event: Both teams will score
Bid: Both teams will score - Yes, CF 1. 78
Why: Both teams demonstrate the ability to score even in difficult matches. The combination of Lens' leaky defense and Metz's scoring form makes it likely that both teams will score.
Event: Team will score
Bid: Metz to score, CF 1. 62
Why: Metz consistently scores in recent league matches. Given the vulnerability of the Lens defense lately, there is a high probability that Metz will score.
Event: Handicap (Handicap)
Bid: Handicap Mets +1, CF 1. 95
Why: Metz have shown resilience in recent matches, even against formidable opponents. It's likely that even if they don't win, they won't lose by more than one goal.
Event: Total goals
Bid: Total goals over 2.5, EF 1.7
Why: Recent results from both teams indicate an upward trend in goals scored. Given Lens' defensive problems and Metz's ability to score, it is likely that the match will see more than 2.5 goals scored.
Both teams have been playing consistently in high-scoring matches lately. Their attacking capabilities coupled with Lens' defensive problems make this the most promising bet.
