Betfred betting tips

Draw No Bet: Lens

Lens cannot afford to slip up but have a tough fixture against Strasbourg, who defeated AS Monaco in their last home game. However, in the four games preceding that fixture, the hosts have lost two and drawn two. On the other hand, Lens have been formidable on the road, securing four wins and two draws from their last seven trips.

Total Goals Over 2.5

The Over 2.5 have been realized in all but one of Lens’ last seven away trips. In contrast, just three of Strasbourg’s last ten games have seen the prediction come true. With Lens having the Europa League in their sights, they will come out to test their hosts resolve and should be able to realize this as Ligue 1’s fourth-best touring side. They average around 1.5 goals per game going forward and concede a similar amount.

Both Teams to Score

The BTTS has come true just twice in Strasbourg’s five home games. On the other hand, Lens’ last six away games have seen both teams getting on the scoreboard. Our faith in the tip is increased by the fact that the last five meetings between these sides has resulted in scorers made to work by them. One has to go back to 2003/04 Ligue 1 campaign to see a result otherwise.

Strasbourg vs Lens preview: Home team looking for relegation safety

Strasbourg have shown remarkable improvement at the back but remain susceptible in troubling the opposition. They face a side that is gunning for continental competition and like to outscore their rivals.

Strasbourg

It will be the hosts who come into the fixture with confidence despite with an L in their last competitive outing. Niko Kovac’s Monaco are difficult to tame and they managed it with gusto. However, they need to start scoring more regularly at the Stade de la Meinau, where they have only 15 goals from 14 outings. They have three first-team players missing from the action but will remain confident in their abilities. Ludovic Ajorque is available and will be looking to score his 12th goal of the season.

Lens

The visitors are unbeaten in eight Ligue 1 games, winning three and drawing four. They were unceremoniously dumped out of the Coupe de France and will have their focus back on Ligue 1. They are inches away from qualifying for the Europa League and have one foot in the door for placement in Europa Conference League. Franck Haise has everyone but Ignatius Ganago missing. The French manager will hope that Ganago’s missing goals are continued to be supplied by Gael Kakuta and Florian Sotoca.
