A penalty from Moussa Dembele in the eighth minute of injury time at the end of the first half and a goal from Houssem Aouar after three minutes of stoppage time in the second half gave Lyon the three points.

It was a first win for Lyon following two draws and two losses and moved them into sixth place in the table on 37 points.

Lyon gave a debut to Brazilian winter transfer window recruit Bruno Guimaraes while Leo Dubois returned from a knee injury suffered in November.

Metz, who went down to their second home defeat of the season, stay in 15th place with 28 points.
