Florian Sotoca is our tip for the first goalscorer in Sunday’s match following his hat trick last weekend. The Lens central forward scored six goals (or 0.22 per 90) in Ligue 1 last season with an expected goals of 8.8 and is 6/1 to be the first name on the score sheet in this match. Or 13/5 to score at any time during Sunday’s game.

Match preview

Ajaccio welcome Lens for their first home match following their promotion last season.

L’ours saw their 10 match undefeated run in the league come to an end last week. Ajaccio lost their last league match away to Lyon. The final score of the match was 2-1.

They looked like they could battle back into the game when Lyon were reduced to 10 men in the first-half. However, Romain Hamouma’s red card killed that hope. He is suspended now for this match. The Ajaccio forward made 22 appearances last season for the club.

The Bears are fortunate to come into Sunday’s match without any injuries to worry about following last week’s match which could make Hamouma the only change.

Sang et Or come into this match on a run of nine league games undefeated. Lens won their last league match at home to Brest. The final score of the match was 3-2.

The match was the Florian Sotoca show as he netted a hattrick against Brest. The striker also missed a penalty in the match in which he had eight shots in total as well as creating two chances, one of which was a ‘big chance’, for his team mates.

Adam Buksa is a doubt due to an ankle injury for this match. Gael Kakuta is also in doubt due to a leg injury for this match. The Lens forward made 29 appearances last season.

Lens are unlikely to make any changes to the side that beat Brest in their last league outing.
