Lens vs Lille betting tips: Ligue 1 preview, prediction and odds

[RECOMMENDED_BETS]Tip of the game

Match preview

It’s a massive game in the race for Europe in Ligue 1 as Lens and Lille battle it out at the Estadio Bollaert-Delelis where the home side are down into fourth after a tumble down the league table since defeating Paris Saint-Germain.

That win over the league leaders looked to be the moment that Lens established themselves as title contenders in France. However, they have since fallen from second into fourth and now sit behind PSG by 10 points and behind Marseille in second by two points.

It still means the club are well within a shout of a spot in the Champions League for next campaign, but after a loss to Nantes in the quarter-finals of the French Cup, they head into this one off the back of two games without a win.

Montpellier drew with them 1-1 last time out, as Lens also beat Nantes back in the league two weeks ago. They have now won 14 games from 25 in Ligue 1 and remain the best defensive side in the competition with just 20 goals let in.

Lille are back in the win column after a 2-1 win over Brest in last Friday, meaning their loss to PSG is all they have to deal with in the league over the past month.
