Lyon looking to maintain form back home

PARIS, Feb 21 (Reuters) - Olympique Lyon will be hoping to carry their European form into domestic action when they face Metz at the weekend after putting on an impressive display against Manchester United in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The leaders are embroiled in an intriguing battle for this season's title with second-placed Girondins Bordeaux, who stand just one point behind the six-times French champions after winning six of their last seven matches.

Bordeaux, who play Lille on Sunday, can leapfrog Lyon at the top of the standings if they win and leaders fail to beat Metz.

However, the Aquitaine side must first concentrate on a UEFA Cup tie against Anderlecht on Thursday.

Lyon shook of the disappointment of last week's 1-0 loss to Le Mans with an assured performance against the English champions, drawing the last 16 first-leg encounter 1-1 after Carlos Tevez bagged a late equaliser for the visitors.

'The way we've played was very interesting,' midfielder Kim Kallstrom told reporters.

'That is what we have to show against Metz on Saturday in a must-win game.'

'We needed a big game to get back on track. I hope it will also reinvigorate our league challenge,' fullback Anthony Reveillere added.

Cast adrift at the bottom of the standings, Metz can take heart from the fact that they snatched their second win of the season last weekend by beating Valenciennes.

Third-placed Nancy, who have fallen eight points behind Lyon after winning just one of their last 11 league games, take on an in-form Lens side on Saturday.

The northeners have not lost a game in the past five weeks and beat Nancy 3-0 in a League Cup quarter-final match last month.

Fourth-placed Olympique Marseille will be hoping to build on a three-match winning streak when they take on Toulouse on Sunday while Monaco need to put last week's 6-0 mauling by Bordeaux out of their minds if they want to overcome Paris St Germain.
