Match Result: Draw

After a good run of form in the last 11 games, Lens is yet to lose in Ligue 1 since 30th January 2021. The visitors beat Brest 2-1 in the reverse fixture and hope to strengthen their fifth spot on the French Ligue 1 table. Lens has the fourth-best away record after 16 away league fixtures. The visitors have not lost a Ligue 1 game on the road since a 3-2 loss at Lyon on 6th January. On the other hand, Brest managed a goal when they lost 2-1 in the reverse fixture. The hosts have had a mixture of results though. They have two draws and two losses in the last four games. Because Brest is fighting for safety, a draw for them on Sunday will give them a 9 point edge from the drop. Loss for Lens could see them fall off fifth.

Under 2.5 Goals

Brest and Lens are two teams fighting for something. The hosts have started to show glimpses of survival after their last 1-1 with Nimes. Brest dominated the reverse fixture againts Lens in December last year by 51% in the first half and 56% in the second half. And despite losing 2-1 to Lens, they had three shots on target against four for Lens. Scoring a goal away at Lens in the reverse match is proof enough Brest will do it all it takes not to lose at home. We expect an even game that will end with less than three goals.

Halftime/Fulltime: Brest/Draw

This is a tricky fixture for both sides. And we expect both to find the net having done so in ten of their previous sixteen encounters. Beating against a more determined Brest is a risky bet, which is why we see the hosts finding the net first and Lens to equalize in the second half.

Game Preview: Lens Hopes to Stretch Unbeaten Run to Twelve Games

Lens team has the best run of form since the start of the season. With Europa League playoffs within their sight, Franck Haise men hope to bag at least a point on the road to steady their top-five spot. More in our match preview below.

Brest

Brest has won 7 of their previous 16 encounters with Lens, one more than the visitors. There have been three draws between the two sides. To Brest, a fixture like this is a must-win or get a least a point. Interestingly, Brest has only two consecutive games  to Lens once in the previous 16 encounters, and it was in 2016. They have three back to back victories over Lens in the last 16 matchups.

Lens

With only one back to back victory over Brest, Lens is in a precarious position on Ligue 1 table right now. Losing this fixture means they could go on level points with Marseille if the latter win their next fixture. In the last three games, Brest has improved defensively and Lens could find it difficult to outscore their Sunday opponents.
