Head to Head 

This is going to be the first match between Lens and Freiburg. 

Lens Form 

Lens dropped into the Europa League playoffs after winning 3rd place in their UEFA Champions League group behind PSV and Arsenal with a record of two wins, two draws and two defeats. 

Their best European performance was seen against the Gunners at home, winning the match 2-1 with Adrien Thomasson and Elye Wahi hitting the target. 

As for their domestic campaign, Lens had a rough start to the new Ligue 1 campaign but made a recovery in the last ten rounds and got up to 6th place. Last weekend they extended the winning streak to three games after beating Strasbourg 3-1 at home. 

Lens Injuries & Team News 

Midfielder Jimmy Cabot and defender Deiver Machado are injured. 

Freiburg Form 

Freiburg won four of their six matches to claim second place in the Europa League Group A. They were victorious twice against Olympiakos and TSC, while losing both encounters to West Ham. 

Brisgau-Brasilianer had a successful first part of the Bundesliga season which they ended in 7th place with 28 points from 21 matches. 

However, the recent form has been disastrous, losing three games in a row against Werder Bremen 3-1, Stuttgart 3-1 and Borussia Dortmund 3-0 last weekend. 

Freiburg Injuries & Team News 

Daniel Kyereh, Kenneth Schmidt, Max Rosenfelder, Philipp Lienhart and Matthias Ginter are injured. 


Lens do their best work at home where they won five of their last six Ligue 1 matches. They also beat Arsenal here in the UCL, so out-of-form Freiburg is set for a loss in France.
