Match Preview

The Great Danes welcome RC Lens to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Saturday for this Ligue 1 match.

LOSC Lille come into the match on a run of eight league games undefeated, have lost just one of their last 14 matches at home and have kept a clean sheet in each of their last four here. They have picked up 12 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Les Dogues shared the points in their last league match away to SCO Angers. Expected goals of 0.9 to 0.7 in favour of Lille indicates both teams probably deserved only a point.

Tiago Djaló will be disappointed with his own goal here which made Lille's task a more difficult one. It was substitute Edon Zhegrova who rescued a point for them just four minutes after coming on. Zhegrova now has two league goals this season for Lille and is 4.5/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-1.

Their opponent on Saturday, RC Lens, come into the match on a run of two away league games without a win or a goal scored. They have picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Blood and Gold won their last league match at home to OGC Nice. Expected goals of 1.4 to 0.8 in favour of Nice indicates Lens didn't deserve all three points on the balance of chances created. To win despite a 15th-minute red card to Massadio Haidara will have impressed onlookers. Sang et Or's Arnaud Kalimuendo Muinga was in good form as he scored a brace of goals against Nice. Kalimuendo Muinga now moves two goals clear of Seko Fofana as top scorer for the club with nine goals this season in the league for Lens and is 4/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 3-0.

LOSC Lille team news

Renato Sanches (Muscle Injury) will be unavailable for The Great Danes due to injury on Saturday. Suspension also rules out Timothy Weah for a recent red card.

They may look to make a few unforced changes to the side who drew against SCO Angers in their last league match. Edon Zhegrova in particular will be hoping his goalscoring cameo earns him a first start for the club in Ligue 1 since signing from Basel in January.

RC Lens team news

The red card shown to Massadio Haidara in their last league match against Nice means Lens will now be without him for today's match.

They are unlikely to make any further changes to the side that beat OGC Nice in their last league outing.
