Although Lens has outperformed Lorient this season in every category, they will still be anticipating a challenging 90 minutes on Sunday. Both the home team and Lorient have won twice, drawn three times, and lost once in their past six games in all competitions, respectively. No clean sheets are anticipated this weekend either, as both teams have scored in each of Lens’ previous six games.

On Sunday, we expect goals from both clubs and have chosen Lens to win by a slim margin of 2-1. Both sides currently perform at a relatively comparable level, but Lens has the home advantage and carries a greater goal threat. Thus, we think the hosts will clutch a victory.
