Match preview

Lens are enjoying an excellent season right now, so will they carry that form into their Coupe de France campaign?

Les Sang et Or are third in Ligue 1, on course for their highest finish since 2002, having lost only once since defeat in the Derby du Nord on 10 October.

Champions League qualification is a realistic ambition for Franck Haise’s team, but they’ll also be dreaming of cup glory.

Lens have never won the Coupe de France, beaten in the finals of 1948, 1975 and 1998.

So far this season, they’ve eliminated Linas-Montlhéry and Stade Brestois, and will be targeting another victory on the road here.

Lorient meantime are also loving life in Ligue 1 just now, sat seventh, even if they’ve won just two of their last 12.

So, les Merlus are on the cusp of reaching the quarter-finals of this tournament for the first time in seven seasons.

Back in August, Lens demolished Lorient 5-2 at Stade Bollaert-Delelis, meaning they’ve now won four of their last six encounters.

Which way will this cup tie go at Stade du Moustoir?
