Match Preview

Blood and Gold welcome FC Nantes to the Stade Bollaert-Delelis on Saturday for this Ligue 1 match. Les Canaris have the strong upper hand in the head to head, with 28 wins to RC Lens’s 12, from their 57 encounters. However, home advantage clearly plays a huge role as the head to head here in Lens is tied at eight wins apiece.

RC Lens come into the match on a run of four league games undefeated and have kept a clean sheet in each of their last two at home. They have picked up 13 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Sang et Or shared the points in their last league match away to Paris Saint Germain. Expected goals of 2.2 to 0.7 in favour of Paris Saint Germain indicates Lens were a little fortunate to escape from the game with a point. It looked pretty bleak when they were reduced to ten men and then conceded the opening goal just minutes after. However, Corentin Jean rescued a point for Lens with a dramatic late equaliser against the odds. It was Jean’s first league goal of this season too and he is 3.5/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-1.

Their opponent on Saturday, FC Nantes, come into the match on a run of two away league games without a win. They have picked up eight points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Canaries handed out a beating in their last league match at home to FC Girondins Bordeaux. Although, expected goals of 2.6 to 2.5 in favour of Bordeaux indicates the game was actually quite even on the balance of chances created.

The result was made even more impressive by the fact Nantes had to twice come from behind in the game. With the result delicately posed at 4-3, Randal Kolo Muani handed Bordeaux a big chance from the penalty spot to grab a point. Alban Lafont bailed out his teammate though by saving the resulting spot-kick.

It would have been harsh on Kolo Muani who was instrumental in creating two of Les Canaris‘s five goals against Bordeaux, including the fourth and ultimately game-winning goal. Kolo Muani now has four assists this season in the league for Nantes. The final score of the match was 5-3.

Kolo Muani is also Nantes’s top scorer with twelve goals in Ligue 1 this season and is 3.8/1 to score against RC Lens on Saturday.

RC Lens team news

The red card shown to Kevin Danso in their last league match against Paris Saint Germain means Lens will now be without him for today’s match.

RC Lens may otherwise stick with the same side who snatched a point against Paris Saint Germain in their last league match. Although, Corentin Jean and Deiver Machado may lay a strong claim to starting after combining to score the game-tying goal.

FC Nantes team news

Injuries will rule out Marcus Coco (sprained ankle) for the trip to the Stade Bollaert-Delelis.

FC Nantes are unlikely to make any changes to the side that beat FC Girondins Bordeaux in their last league outing. Although, after his goal-scoring cameo that sealed the win, Osman Bukari will be hoping he can get a promotion to the starting lineup here.
