The Match to End in a Draw

This fixture will be decided by two things. RC Lens is 5th and hoping to stem that position further with a win against Lorient. On the other hand, Lorient is 17th, only three four points from the drop. After 1-0 victory against Brest last weekend, Lorient won for the first time after three consecutive draws of 1-1 in Ligue 1. We expect them to fight even harder in this fixture to secure at least a point. Lens drew 1-1 last weekend when they hosted Lyon last weekend. Such a strong show against a stronger side will also be a motivating factor in this fixture. Both teams have not lost their last five Ligue 1 matches and we expect them to give this fixture a cautious approach even if it means sharing the spoils.

Both Teams to Score

Backing both teams to score is another plausible betting option in this fixture. The two teams have found the net in all their last five games. In this will be another show of improvement. We expect the visitors to score first given that Lens has been conceding an average of two goals per match in the last ten fixtures. Lorient looks stronger defensively but they may not be able to prevent Lens from stemming their top five ambitions with at least a point.

Total Goals Over 2.5

Our value bet in this fixture is more than two goals. The reason is simple. Lens has seen more than three goals in 7 of their last 9 fixtures. Four of the last seven fixtures between the two sides have also ended with more than two goals.

Lens vs. Lorient Preview: RC Lens Continues top 5 Chase

A fight for survival in Ligue 1 and a chase for top five meet in this fixture. Both sides look set to go after going unbeaten in the last five games.

RC Lens

Lens comes into this fixture with 1-1 draw against Lyon last weekend. They have two victories in the last five games and three draws. The hosts’ manager has not lost to Lorient manager, which is a vital record in to keep in this fixture. However, they have only 3 victories in the last 18 meetings against the visitors. Will they maintain their unbeaten run in this fixture? We think so.

Lorient

Lorient has not been conceding a lot of goals like their Sunday hosts. In their last five games, they have kept one clean, and conceded one goal in the other four fixtures. They have 10 victories against Lens in the last 18 meetings. There are five draws between the two teams. In this fixture, we expect Lorient to maintain their unbeaten with at least a point if not a win after last weekend’s 1-0 victory against Brest.
