Chateauroux vs Lens Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips 


Lens are looking to return to winning ways when they travel to the Stade Gaston Petit for a French Ligue 2 clash against Chateauroux. The visitors are can get the better of Chateauroux who are without a win or a goal in their last two matches as they keep up their title charge.

Chateauroux Form


Chateauroux are coming off a 2-0 defeat at Troyes in their last Ligue 2 fixture. It was yet another poor display as they barely troubled the Troyes backline and finished with just two attempts on target.

It was the second straight defeat for Chateauroux, who were also beaten 3-0 at home by Chambly in their previous fixture. Nicolas Usai's men also failed to score in both matches and their poor form has seen them slip down the table.

Chateauroux News


Chateauroux have no injuries or suspensions ahead of Monday’s clash.

Lens Form


Lens were held to a 0-0 draw by Grenoble in their previous Ligue 2 outing. They will be disappointed not to have won having dominated the possession and missed several goalscoring opportunities.

The result means Philippe Montanier’s men are now unbeaten in their last seven matches and sit four points off the top of the table. They have claimed a few good wins in that run which include a 2-1 away victory against promotion chasers Ajaccio.

Lens have maintained a solid defence through all of this and head into Monday’s clash with clean sheets in their last three matches.

Lens News


Moussa Sylla remains the only absentee for Lens with the defender set to miss Monday’s match through suspension.

Chateauroux vs Lens Head to Head


Lens have a 6-4 advantage with five draws from 15 previous matches against Chateauroux. Lens claimed a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis with Tony Mauricio’s second half effort sealing the win.

Chateauroux vs Lens Match Up


Chateauroux often struggle in attack and are without a goal in their last two matches. Striker Cheick Diarra has also failed to score in his last eight matches and is likely to find things difficult against a solid Lens backline.

Lens have kept things tight at the back in recent weeks and have kept a clean sheet in their last three matches. They also have quality at the other end of the pitch with Simon Banza and Gaetan Robail who have combined for 13 goals this season.
