Rodez vs Lens Live Stats & Betting Odds

Rodez Prediction – Can Rodez close gap on top five?

All three points in tonight’s clash with 5th placed Lens would reduce the existing 7 points deficit for Rodez to just 4 points when they take on high-flying Lens on home turf at their Stade Paul Lignon with the hosts in reasonably good shape.

Despite losing 4 of their last 6 matches overall in Ligue 2, Rodez will be in pretty good spirits ahead of this tussle as the hosts have suffered just 1 defeat out of their first 6 home matches of this campaign, while 3 of the 4 previously mentioned defeats were inflicted upon Rodez away from home.

An overall home record though of 4-1-1 13/7 gives Rodez a fighting chance of getting something out of this encounter having already collected wins against Auxerre, Paris FC, Le Mans and Chambly along with a 3-3 draw with Orleans.

We do need to take into account that 5th placed Lens are the visitors tonight though, so the goals markets look inviting as forwards Sane (3 goals) and Bonnet (7 goals) look the most likely for the hosts.


Rodez vs Lens Over 2.5 goals

Lens Prediction – Can Lens consolidate top 5 spot?

The visitors already occupy 5th place in the French second tier but they’ll no doubt welcome another three points in this visit to Rodez as they look to cement their place in the top five and indeed, would move top of Ligue 2 with a win tonight.

Plenty of incentive then for Lens to go on the front foot here, and having put together an 8-match sequence without defeat in Ligue 2, Lens certainly look in good shape to add to their points tally in this Monday night clash at the Stade Paul Lignon.

An away record of 3-3-1 11/7 also looks solid enough for this Lens outfit who are unbeaten in their last 4 matches on their travels which includes wins at Caen and Orleans along with draws at Grenoble Foot and Nancy.

But although they’ve produced some solid results on the road so far this season, Lens are also susceptible at the back as 4 of their 7 away matches have resulted in both teams scoring, while keeping just 2 clean sheets to date.


Key-Facts – Rodez vs Lens

  • Rodez have lost just 1 of their first 6 home matches in Ligue 2
  • Lens are unbeaten in their last 8 matches overall in Ligue 2
  • 4 of Lens’s 7 away matches in Ligue 2 have seen both teams score


Betting Tips Verdict

With both teams in reasonably good nick, we could see both hit the back of the net tonight at good odds.
