Our recommended bet for Sunday’s clash at The Stade Pierre-Mauroy comes in the form of a draw between LOSC Lille and RC Lens, featuring a goal from Florian Sotoca.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £120 with Bet365.
The final fixture of gameweek 10 in Ligue 1 is set to play out at The Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Sunday, October 9th.
The matchup in question will see LOSC Lille act as hosts, in a meeting with high-flying RC Lens.
Let’s first take a look at the recent form of the former.
Lille marked their return to the pitch on the back of the international break last weekend, slipping to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of surprise early title contenders Lorient.
This continued an almost unbelievable string of results for Les Dogues, dating back to late August.
Bizarrely, since a 7-1 drubbing at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain, Paulo Fonseca’s troops have proven predictable for all the wrong reasons, courtesy of the following set of results - loss, win, loss, win, loss, win, loss - in that order.
Should such a streak carry through the upcoming weekend, then Lille, of course, would ultimately emerge from Sunday night’s action with all three points.
Their upcoming opponents, though, will prove no pushovers.
In fact, to this point in the season, quite the opposite has proven to be true. Lens, in stark contrast to their hosts on Sunday, have represented a model of consistency over the early weeks and months of 2022/23.
Les Sang et Or actually stand, alongside champions PSG, as one of only two clubs still unbeaten across the French top-flight campaign.
This comes with Franck Haise’s men having racked up a head-turning record of six wins and three draws from their nine outings to date.
Such endeavours - the most recent of which saw Lens put Lyon to the sword by a goal to nil - mean that the upcoming visitors to Flanders will climb to within a solitary point of the Ligue 1 summit, if they manage to get the better of Lille.
We at 101, though, envision Les Dogues doing enough to hold their high-flying opponents at bay, en route to an eventual sharing of the points on Sunday evening.
