Paris FC vs Lens Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Paris FC are set to continue their good form when they host promotion chasing Lens in a French Ligue 2 fixture at the Stade Sebastien-Charlety. Lens have struggled in recent weeks and should find things difficult against Paris who are on a three-match winning run.

Paris FC Form

Paris are coming off a 1-0 victory at Clermont in their previous Ligue 2 fixture. A goal from substitute Cheick Timite in the second half proved to be the difference between the teams.

Rene Girard’s men have eased their relegation fears in recent weeks after winning their last three matches. All three wins have come against teams ranked above them including Clermont who are currently vying for promotion.

Paris FC News

Paris have a fully fit squad for Monday’s match with striker Romain Armand set to return to the team following a two-match suspension.

Lens Form

Lens were disappointing in their previous Ligue 2 fixture as they hammered 4-1 at home by Caen. They failed to build on Corentin Jean's first half opener and looked uncoordinated and disjointed in defence.

Philippe Montanier’s men have seen their promotion suffer serious damage in recent weeks having claimed just one win in their last seven matches. They have lost their last two outings, including a 3-2 defeat at troubled Chateauroux in their previous away fixture. 

Lens News

Right back Moussa Sylla is suspended alongside winger Clement Michelin, who was shown a red card against Caen. Centre back Jonathan Gradit is also set to miss Monday’s match due to injury.

Paris FC vs Lens Head to Head

Lens have a 3-2 advantage with four draws from nine previous matches against Paris FC. The Parisians claimed a 2-0 victory the last time they hosted Lens but were beaten 2-1 in the reverse fixture at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis. Aleksander Radovanovic and Clement Michelin got the goals for Lens while Romain Armand was on target for Paris.

Paris FC vs Lens Match Up

Paris’ recent upturn in form has been built on a solid defence having kept clean sheets in their last two matches. The duo of Samuel Yohou and Ousmane Kante should stand firm against the Lens forward line while Romain Armand should carry the attacking threat.

Lens have been plagued by defensive problems lately having conceded seven goals in their last two matches. They have also struggled in attack lately with Simon Banza scoring just once in his last seven appearances while Gaetan Robail is currently on a six-match goal drought.
