Lens Prediction – Can Lens reduce gap at top?

Having put together a strong 4-match winning streak in the French second tier, Lens may not have wanted the international break to come as the hosts were building a very impressive momentum which has lifted them into the top two of Ligue 2.

Recent wins against Chateauroux 1-0, Caen 2-0, Paris FC 2-1 and a heavy 4-1 romp away from home at Orleans have placed Lens in one of the two automatic promotion spots in the second tier, but with the likes of Sochaux, Troyes and Ajaccio hard on their heels and all just 1 point behind, Lens will be keen to add another 3 points to their tally here and put some daylight between themselves and the chasing pack.

The hosts are unbeaten in their last 5 matches overall in Ligue 2 which also includes a point against Grenoble Foot in a 2-2 draw on the road, while Lens’s overall home record stands at a pretty solid looking 3-0-1 6/4.

Wins over Guingamp, Chateauroux and Paris FC should give Lens the necessary confidence and impetus to record another three points here this evening, together with having won the last 3 encounters between these two sides.

Auxerre Prediction – Can Auxerre improve fortunes on road?

Auxerre signed off before the break with a 2-0 home win against Le Havre which lifted the visitors up into a safe and respectable mid-table position ahead of the resumption of the Ligue 2 action this weekend.

Form on home turf at their Stade de l’Abbé Deschamps hasn’t been a problem for the large part of this season as they’ve suffered just 1 defeat out of their 5 matches at home along with recording 3 wins against Le Mans, Ajaccio and Le Havre.

However, with just 1 win on their travels in the French second tier out of their last 5 matches on the road, this will be a slight concern for the visitors as they face an in-form Lens outfit in their own backyard, and as mentioned earlier, they’ve lost the last 3 meetings on the trot against Monday night’s opponents.

In addition, their away record of 1-2-2 7/7 includes just the one win which was gained at Chambly 4-1 while defeats at Rodez and Sochaux along with draws at Clermont and Niort have yet to balance the books as far as the visitors are concerned.


Key-Facts – Lens v Auxerre

  • Lens have won their last 4 matches on the trot in Ligue 2
  • Auxerre have managed just 1 win out of their last 14 away matches in Ligue 2
  • Lens have won the last 3 meetings against Auxerre


Betting Tips Verdict

Lens are building momentum while Auxerre have a poor away record – this should be a home win here.
