Orleans Prediction – Can Orleans register back-to-back wins?

Orleans eased their early relegation fears last time out in Ligue 2 when they recorded a much needed 2-1 win away at Troyes which was their first win of this new French second tier season, and the hosts will now be looking to build upon this result when they play host to high-flying Lens on Monday night.

The hosts moved up to 16th place on the Ligue 2 ladder thanks to that recent win, but they’ve lost 3 of their first 4 matches on home turf at their Stade de la Source so far this season amidst an overall record of 0-1-3 2/5 which includes defeats to Chambly, Clermont and Niort as well as failing to score in 3 of these 4 matches too.

The bigger picture shows that Orleans have captured just 3 wins out of their last 17 matches on home turf in Ligue 2, and they’ve also lost the last two encounters against Lens, so this could be another tough fixture for the hosts despite being at home.

Lens Prediction – Can Lens move up to 2nd spot?

4th placed Lens will no doubt have their eyes on capturing all three points in this Monday night’s clash at Orleans as a win this evening would see the visitors move up in to 2nd place and 3 points behind Ligue 2 leaders, Lorient.

Lens have suffered just 2 defeats out of their 9 matches played to date so far in the French second tier and bring a 4-match unbeaten sequence into this encounter which includes a point against Grenoble 2-2 away from home and winning their last 3 matches on the trot.

Victories over Chateauroux 1-0, Caen 2-0 and Paris FC 2-1 have helped lift the visitors up into the top four of the division but their situation could improve even further if they take all three points at the Stade de la Source on Monday night.

Having lost just 1 of their last 8 away matches overall in Ligue 2, this could be a distinct possibility for the Lens here, and they’ve come out on top in their previous two encounters against Orleans as well.


Key-Facts – Orleans v Lens

  • Orleans have won just 3 out of their last 17 matches on home turf in Ligue 2
  • Lens have lost just 1 out of their last 8 away matches in Ligue 2
  • Lens have won the last two encounters against Orleans


Betting Tips Verdict

Despite holding home advantage, Orleans appear to have their work cut out to get anything out of visiting Lens here this evening.
