Match preview

Blood and Gold welcome Olympique Lyonnais to the Stade Bollaert-Delelis on Saturday for this Ligue 1 match.

Sang et Or won their last league match at home to FC Girondins Bordeaux. Expected goals of 2.2 to 0.8 in favour of Lens indicates it was likely a fair result.
The concern will be at how they switched off after taking a three-goal lead after just 25 minutes. This let Bordeaux back into the game and saw Lens trying to hang onto their one-goal lead throughout the second half. The final score of the match was 3-2.

Their opponent on Saturday, Olympique Lyonnais, come into the match having picked up 11 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Kids won their last league match at home to OGC Nice. Expected goals of 2.8 to 0.1 in favour of Lyon indicates it was likely a fair result. Les Gones were awarded a penalty a few minutes into the game which Moussa Dembele stepped up to convert for his side.
While this proved to be the winner, it is the defence that will get the most credit for the result. They completely shut down Nice who didn’t have a shot until the 75th minute when already 2-0 behind. It was their last shot of the match also. The final score of the match was 2-0.
