Lens vs Sevilla Predictions


The stats suggest we can expect an entertaining contest with Europa League football on the line.

I´m backing Lens to claim the points while I also expect both teams to score on Tuesday. 

  • Lens have seen BTTS in 5 of their last 7 home matches
  • Lens have seen BTTS in 9 of their last 11 matches (Champions League)
  • Lens have won 5 of their last 7 home matches
  • Sevilla have seen BTTS in 5 of their last 6 matches (Champions League)
  • Sevilla have seen BTTS in 3 of their last 4 away matches (Champions League)
  • Sevilla have lost 3 of their last 4 away matches

Head to Head


Tuesday's Champions League contest is the second-ever match between Lens and Sevilla. The spoils were shared after a 1-1 draw in their first contest in Spain earlier this season. 

Lens Form


Lens have shown their resilience in recent matches after a disastrous 6-0 defeat against Arsenal at the end of November. Since that nadir, Les Sang et have bounced back with a 3-2 win against Lyon and a point gained in a goalless road draw at Montpellier last time out.

Sixth in Ligue 1, Lens have a strong home record, which has seen them lose just two of 33 competitive matches since March 2022. Les Sang et are also unbeaten in five previous home matches in this competition. 

Lens Team News


Franck Haise has no fresh injury issues after Lens's goalless draw at Montpellier. Deiver Machado and Ayanda Sishuba are both likely to remain absent for the home side, who must also cope without long-term absentees Jimmy Cabot and Wuilker Farinez.

Sevilla Form


Sevilla come into Tuesday's crunch matchup in poor form after another road defeat at Mallorca this past weekend. An early strike from Canadian Cyle Larin extended Diego Alonso´s side´s winless away streak in La Liga to nine matches.

Los Nervionenses have lost three of their last four on their travels while they have only managed to win one of eight games since a Copa del Rey victory at Quintanar over a month ago. 

The Andalucian's poor road form also extends to this competition with no wins in any of their last nine away Champions League encounters. 

Sevilla Team News


Diego Alonso has a lengthy list of absentees for Tuesday´s vital contest in France. Suso, Orjan Nyland, Mariano Diaz, Tanguy Nianzou, Jesus Navas, Erik Lamela, Loic Bade and Marcos Acuna are all ruled out with various injuries.

In addition, the Uruguayan boss must also cope without suspended duo Fernando and Lucas Ocampos. 

Verdict

Lens will fancy their chances of securing the point they need against an injury-ravaged Sevilla.
 
I expect the French side to go one better and claim victory while the visitors can score to bring up the BTTS pick.
