Note to punters: The above odds for Lens vs Lille may change before kick-off. Please visit Betfred for updated odds for this fixture.

No Goal-Goal

While both teams have found the net in their last seven games, this should be a different game with a different atmosphere. The title equation could tilt in favour of Lille or PSG after this game, which is why we expect a highly defensive mindset by both managers. Lille has been good in front of goal and even defeated top title prospects like PSG and Lyon. Thus, we don’t see why Lille will be unable to prevent Lens from scoring.

Fewer than Three Goals Expected

Despite a 4-0 victory in the reverse fixture, Lille faces a much-improved Lens in match week 36. Like the visitors, Lens is under pressure. The hosts are fifth and have a 56 point-tie with a sixth-placed Marseille. An improved defensive display in the last five games is why we feel Lens will not let in a lot of goals. Therefore, we expect fewer than three goals in this game.

Lille’s to edge out Lens

Our third prediction is a straight win for Lille. Defeating Lens, which has the 8th best home record will be a tall order for the visitors but they have all it takes to bag victory anyway. Lille has the best away record this season having lost only one match on the road. The visitors have won 14 games and drawn four times on the road. We think Lille can keep that good record on Friday when they travel to Stade Bollaert-Delelis, Len-France.

Lens vs Lille Match Preview: Can Lille Extend their Lead at the Top?

Match week 36 starts with an interesting fixture and a must-watch game for that matter. Lille needs a win to keep their title hopes alive. Lens also needs a win to stem their fifth position and qualify for Conference League.

Lens

Before losing 2-1 to PSG last weekend, Lens had a 13-match unbeaten run. Playing two title hopefuls, PSG last weekend and now Lille is too much for the hosts. Do they face a similar fate as last weekend? Well, Lens has shown strong defensive performance in the last seven games, conceding an average of one goal in every game. However, failing to keep a clean sheet in the last 13 games in all competitions makes Lens quite vulnerable.

Lille

Lille is at the top of the Ligue 1 table. However, only one point separates them from the second-placed PSG. Coming into this fixture, Lille’s only ambition is to win. We expect a highly offensive play with a cautious approach at the back from Lille. Lille’s top scorer, Burak Yilmaz is a scoring prospect in this fixture. Moreover, a resurgent form that has helped the visitors secure 13 points in the last five games will play significance.
