Prediction and Preview

  • Nîmes Olympique’s goalless draw in their last L1 outing made it just one win from their previous seven top-flight fixtures (W1, D1, L5), with the last five to see a winner witnessing the victorious side take a HT lead. In fact, that result ended a run of six-straight league matches which featured over 2.5 goals, with both sides scoring on five occasions.
  • Fans should expect a lively start here, as the opener has been netted before the 15th minute in all but one of the last six league matches at the Stade des Costières. In fact, if they win this match it will likely be accompanied by a clean sheet, as ‘Les Crocos’ have kept one in seven of their last eight top-flight home victories.
  • Lens saw their winning return to the top flight stretched to three matches, as they defeated Bordeaux 2-1 last time out. That result continued a recent trend too, as each of their four L1 fixtures this campaign have now been settled by a one-goal margin, with Lens scoring the opening goal on three occasions.
  • Entertaining first halves appear to be a fledgling theme for Lens on the road this term, as both L1 away games so far have witnessed both teams score before HT. Furthermore, with the decisive goal being scored in the 75th minute or later in those two road trips, this game could witness some late drama.
  • Players to watch: Zinedine Ferhat (NIM) has scored two L1 goals this campaign – both strikes were netted between the 50th and 60th minute.
  • Gaël Kakuta has been Lens’ first goalscorer in each of their two L1 road trips so far – both goals came from the penalty spot.
  • Hot streak: Just one of the previous 18 competitive H2Hs saw both teams score before HT.
