Lens can maintain their lead at the top of the French Ligue 2 as they travel to the Stade Paul Lignon for a clash against Rodez. Lens are unbeaten in eight matches and can get the better of Rodez.

Rodez Form

Rodez suffered a 1-0 defeat at Ajaccio in their previous Ligue 2 fixture. They barely threatened the Ajaccio backline and finished the contest without a single shot on target.

Laurent Peyrelade's men are sitting 10th on the table and have blown hot and cold for much of the season. They head into Monday’s match with four defeats in their last six Ligue 2 matches.

Rodez News

Top scorer Ugo Bonnet came off the bench at Ajaccio and is likely to return to the starting lineup on Monday. He should be joined in attack by Dorian Caddy despite scoring one goal in his last six matches.

Lens Form

Lens claimed a 1-0 home win against Lorient last time out in Ligue 1. They laboured for much of the contest with Tony Mauricio’s penalty on 82 minutes proving to be the difference.

Philippe Montanier’s men are top of the standings having gone unbeaten in their last eight Ligue 2 matches. They have won five of their last seven matches, keeping clean sheets in the last three.

Lens News

Aleksandar Radovanovic and Zakaria Diallo have been pivotal to Lens' recent defensive solidity and both men should continue at centre back. Tony Mauricio is also set to retain his place in midfield after netting his fourth goal of the season against Lorient.

Ugo Bonnet is the top scorer for Rodez but the striker has scored just two goals in his last six appearances. Dorian Caddy has also struggled in recent weeks having found the net just once in his last six matches.

Defenders Aleksandar Radovanovic and Zakaria Diallo have impressed lately for Lens and will be confident of shutting out the Rodez forward line. With Tony Mauricio and Florian Sotoca, Lens have the quality to trouble the hosts at the other end of the pitch.
