Match Preview

Third-placed will be aiming to keep up their stunning start to the season when they meet with Nantes at the Beaujoire Stadium on Sunday with the home side hoping to move on swiftly from a disastrous game in the Europa League on Thursday.

Nantes lost to Qarabag in Europe just three days prior to this game, as they were easily defeated by the side from Azerbaijan. The club registered just two shots on target and lost 3-0 in the game, meaning they have now lost two in a row and conceded six in the process, as they also lost to Lorient 3-2 last weekend.

The Coupe de France winners did still manage to defeat Olympiacos in the first game of the Europa League, beating the Greek giants 2-1 on home soil. However, with a 3-0 loss to PSG at home just prior to this and a 1-1 draw away to Strasbourg before that, the club are now winless in Ligue 1 for three games.

Lens, however, have been sensational this season. They defeated Troyes 1-0 last time out, which came after dropping points for just the second time this season in a 1-1 draw with Reims. A 5-2 victory against the high-flying Lorient just prior to that keeps them in third, however, and unbeaten in Ligue 1 so far.

Lens have also beaten last season’s second-highest scorers Rennes, and Brest who sit down in the relegation zone. Quite incredibly though, their other dropped points came against the only winless side still left in the division, Ajaccio.
