Match Preview

Blood and Gold welcome OGC Nice to the Stade Bollaert-Delelis on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. The omens aren’t good if you are looking forward to an exciting, high scoring, game. Lens have seen under 2.5 goals in their last seven home matches in this head to head, in all competitions. There have also been under 2.5 goals scored in eight of Nice's last nine Ligue 1 games. Odds of 1.8/1 are available for another under 2.5 goals game on Sunday.

RC Lens come into the match having picked up eight points from a maximum of 18 from their last six matches.

Sang et Or lost their last league match away to RC Strasbourg Alsace. Expected goals of 2.7 to 1.2 in favour of Strasbourg indicates perhaps it was a fair result. Lens contributed to their problems by handing the Racers two penalties in the match. The first was converted by Strasbourg but Jean-Louis Leca kept them in the game by saving the second just minutes later. Sadly, the forwards couldn’t repay him by finding an equaliser. The final score of the match was 1-0.

Seko Fofana is RC Lens’s top scorer with seven goals from midfield in Ligue 1 this season and is 4/1 to score against OGC Nice on Sunday.

Their opponent on Sunday, OGC Nice, come into the match on a run of four away league games without a win. They have picked up nine points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Eaglets shared the points in their last league match at home to Stade Rennais FC. Expected goals of 1.1 to 0.9 in favour of Nice indicates both teams probably deserved only a point. It was Andy Delort's opening goal that ultimately proved enough for only a point for Nice. Delort now has eight league goals this season for Nice and is 3.4 /1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-1.
