Third of Ligue 2 to the truce, Lens returns to the coal with all the confidence accumulated during a few weeks. It was reinforced last Sunday, thanks to a prestigious victory in front of Metz (2-0) on behalf of the 32nd final of the Coupe de France. A very good way to start the year in Bollaert where the Blood and Gold have dropped too many points in the championship this season (4v / 4n / 1d). Fourth best L2 club away from its bases with 16 points taken in 10 games, the RCL serenely addresses this trip to the Stade de la Vallée du Cher. At the gates of the red zone, the Tourangeaux saw in this shock a great opportunity to confirm the progress made before the truce. Unbeaten for four days (2v / 2n), the men of Fabien Mercedal also know that a defeat could quickly plunge them back into a negative spiral … Tension guaranteed!
Probability points in Lens
The last 8 trips of the RCL to a club located in one of last six places of Ligue 2 saw less than 3 goals to the bulletin board.
The last 11 times that Tours received a top club (first 6), under 2.5 goals were added!
15 goals have been scored on average in the last 7 clashes between the two clubs in L2, just slightly more than 2 per game.
It is the recovery of Ligue 2 and nobody wants to lose. One should expect to see two formations cautious.
Tours Lens – Our forecast
Between Tourangeaux wanting to maintain their series of unbeaten unbeaten before the truce and a RCL still sometimes a little chilly to get the three points, we can expect a tense game. As in the last 8 Lens displacements on the lawn of a misclassified (last 6), less than 3 goals will be entered.
