Match Preview

Blood and Gold welcome Montpellier HSC to the Stade Bollaert-Delelis on Wednesday for this Ligue 1 match. A 1-0 win for Montpellier in the reverse fixture back in October means they have now won three of the last four in this head to head. It also leaves them chasing a first-ever league double over Lens.

RC Lens come into the match on a run of two wins in a row. They have picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Sang et Or won their last league match away to LOSC Lille. Expected goals of 1.2 to 0.7 in favour of Lens indicates they didn’t deserve all three points on the balance of chances created. Przemyslaw Frankowski and Arnaud Kalimuendo Muinga goals in the first half gave them a lead they could hold onto through the second half. The final score of the match was 1-2.

Kalimuendo-Muinga enters double figures of the season now and is RC Lens’s top scorer with ten goals in Ligue 1 this season. He is the 2.5/1 favourite to score against Montpellier HSC on Wednesday.

Their opponent on Wednesday, Montpellier HSC, come into the match on a run of three league games without a win having also failed to score in each of their last two. They have picked up five points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Paladins last league match, at home to Stade Reims, ended in a dull 0-0 draw. Expected goals of 1.2 to 0.9 in favour of Reims indicates both teams probably deserved only a point. Les Pailladins have Dimitry Bertaud to thank for the clean sheet here, who kept Reims out with nine saves including one big chance.

Sepe Elye Wahi missed Montpellier HSC’s best chance in the game to snatch all three points. He is their joint top scorer with eight goals in Ligue 1 this season and is 3.6/1 to score against RC Lens on Wednesday.
