Lyon fought back to secure a point from their trip to Metz on Sunday.Metz lost the only remaining perfect record in Ligue 1 on Sunday when being held by champions Lyon.
Lyon also came into the game unbeaten but Metz have started the season well and they came into the home match full of confidence.
Metz started the game at a rate of knots and their superior early play was rewarded with the opener on 30 minutes.
Franck Ribery broke the deadlock when his shot took a slight deflection on its way past Gregory Coupet.
Metz continued to dominate and had a chance to increase their lead on 40 minutes when awarded a penalty but Coupet pulled off a fabulous stop to deny Babacar Gueye.
Lyon garnered confidence from Coupet's save and drew level on the hour when Florent Balmont flashed home a fine drive after good work from Hatem Ben Arfa.
