Strasbourg vs Lens Predictions


It’s been a while since Strasbourg lost at home in Ligue 1, securing two wins and a draw this season. Lens have been inconsistent, so draw stands out as the best bet.

  • Strasbourg are unbeaten in 3 of their last 4 matches against Lens
  • Lens are winless in 6 of their last 7 matches

Head to Head


Lens have a 12-11 advantage against Strasbourg with 11 draws in 34 matches.

The most recent head to head encounter was won by Lens 2-1 in April.

Strasbourg Form


Strasbourg’s results in the opening six weeks of the new Ligue 1 campaign have been decent, grabbing ten points total and occupying 6th place on the standings.

Results in September have been inconsistent, starting with a 2-0 loss to Nice, followed by a 2-2 home draw against Montpellier. Last weekend, Strasbourg won 1-0 at Metz with Mouhamadou Diarra hitting the target.

The Blue and Whites finished the previous Ligue 1 season in 15th place with 40 points, five above the relegation zone.

Karol Fila and Ibrahima Sissoko are injured.

Lens Form


Expectations were high after Lens ended the previous Ligue 1 season in high 2nd place. That success also got them directly into UCL group stages where they drew at Sevilla 1-1 last week.

Things are not looking good in the league though, losing three games in a row to PSG 3-1, Monaco 3-0 and Metz 1-0. The losing run was interrupted last weekend with a 2-1 home win against Toulouse.

Still, Lens currently sit inside the relegation zone after collecting just four points from the opening six weeks. Deiver Machado and Morgan Guilavogui are the top scorers, bagging two goals each.

Lens Team News


Massadio Haidara, Jimmy Cabot, Pereira da Costa and Wuilker Farinez are injured.

Verdict

Lens are nowhere close to form which got them to 2nd place in Ligue 1 last season. Strasbourg rarely lose at home, so I expect to see a close match to end in a draw.
