Lens – Orleans : Preview & Prediction
The RCL is much better in recent weeks. Tombeur Saint-Brieuc (0-1) in the sixteenths of the Coupe de France this week, the North have not been beaten for nine games in all competitions. Still 15th in Ligue 2 with one game late to play, Lens is seven points ahead of the first relegation and would take a big step towards sustaining success in Bollaert on Friday. The Orleans have not won four games (2d-2n) at the time to go to Lens. Far too feverish defensively, the men of Didier Ollé-Nicolle will have to show courage to avoid defeat …
The USO lost in 8 of its last 11 trips to formations ranked in the last six of L2.
The RCL had clearly dominated the Orléanais (4-2) last year in Bollaert.
Lens has won five of its last six league games played at Bollaert.
The RCL has won five of its last 9 L2 games played at Bollaert against formations ranked between 15th and 20th position.
Orleans is still less efficient in the second half of the season and begins to enter the hard. We can not imagine this USO having conceded 10 goals in his last four L2 (2d-2n) games to bring back something from Bollaert where Lens has won five of his last six league games. Lens will definitely move away from the red zone this Friday!
