Metz vs Lens: Probable Lineups

Metz will be desperate to end their three-game winless streak when they host Lens at home on Friday night. The relegation zone is looming for Les Grenats, who currently sit just three points above the playoff spot. Meanwhile, Lens are still pushing for a Europa League spot, but they need a win to close the gap on Nice above them.

Metz’s injury list remains lengthy, with key players like Benjamin Tetteh and Christophe Herelle not expected back until later in the month. Didier Lamkel Ze is also a doubt after picking up a knock last week.

Manager László Bölöni may look to Ismael Traore and Georges Mikautadze to provide some firepower upfront. Traore recently scored his second goal of the season, while Mikautadze is the team’s leading scorer with seven goals.

Lens will be boosted by the return of Deiver Machado, who is finally fit after a lengthy groin injury. Jimmy Cabot is also nearing a comeback from a serious knee injury.

Manager Franck Haise will likely hand a starting role to their top scorer, Elye Wahi, who was surprisingly dropped for the Lille match.

Possible Lineups

Metz : Oukidja; Kouao, Traore, Cande, Udol; Camara, Jacques, Sabaly; Jallow, Mikautadze, Diallo

Lens : Samba; Gradit, Danso, Medina; Aguilar, Abdul Samed, Fulgini, Frankowski; Costa; Sotoca, Wahi
