The unbeaten Lens will welcome Troyes to the Estadio Bollaert-Delelis this Friday evening as the home side aim to keep down their marker on a potential early title charge just the away outfit look to build on some positive results lately.
Troyes are currently down in 11th right now with only two wins. So far, they have conceded 14 goals which is the most for those sitting outside of the relegation zone as only Angers have let in more. On the other hand, they’ve scored 11 times in six games too.
Bruno Irles’ men are coming off the back of a 1-1 draw with Rennes over the weekend. What’s more with a fantastic 4-2 win away to Monaco along with a 3-1 win against Angers, Troyes are still on a three-game unbeaten run.
Lens have been absolutely sensational so far in Ligue 1. As of now, nobody have come that close to beating them other than Reims over the weekend when where Lois Openda scored with 10 minutes to go to snatch a point.
It was only the second time Lens have dropped points this campaign, as they have scored 15 and let in just seven. In fact, only the champions Paris Saint-Germain and Montpellier down in seventh have scored more, which is impressive given how Montepellier netted seven in one game.
Lens also beat the high-flying Lorient last week too as Florian Sotoca scored once more with a goal in either half, Wesley Said got another goal as well, with Openda getting in on the act. Salis Samed also scored in the second half that day and they remain unbeaten heading into this one.
