Lens – St Etienne : Preview & Prediction
Lens welcomes Saint-Etienne on Saturday afternoon, for a match between two surprise teams at the start of the Ligue 1 Uber Eats season. Promoted from Ligue 2, the Artesiens are indeed in good shape, as are their opponents of the day who finished in 17th position last year. Respectively sixth and fourth in the standings this year, just three points behind the Rennes leader, both Lensois and Stéphanois are aiming for points at Bollaert again, to continue their good momentum in September.
In terms of performance, Racing seems to have a small advantage over the Greens, as they haven’t lost since the first day of the exercise. Winners of PSG and Bordeaux at home, Franck Haise’s men feast at home, and Claude Puel’s proteges could pay the price. Humiliated at home by Rennes last weekend (0-3), the Stéphanois will have trouble taking the three points in the Pas de Calais. Lens is on fire, the maintenance is probably already in play now.
Lens have won their 2 home games this season (PSG, Bordeaux).
Lens remains on a crazy series of 3 wins and a draw (Nîmes).
In the last game in Nîmes, Lens did not give up the victory until the 87th minute.
Saint-Etienne lost heavily against Rennes last Saturday (0-3).
Before that, the Greens had also dropped points in Nantes (2-2).
In the event of victory, Lens would temporarily pass Lille in the standings. And that is priceless.
In great shape at the start of the season, Racing Club de Lens seems capable of overcoming the Greens this Saturday afternoon at Bollaert. Much worse than a few days ago, Puel’s men remain on a draw in Nantes and a heavy loss against Rennes. In Lens to take advantage of this, to garner as many points as possible for maintenance. Lensoise victory for us
