It is almost the match of the extremes that await us at the end of this 19th day of Ligue 2. Orléans, 19th, receives Lensois sent back to the foot of the podium by Reims, winner of Clermont (0-1) last Friday. With two points back on the Champardennais and as much on Amiens, dolphin of Brest, the RCL would make a superb operation taking the three points. Rather seductive against Clermont (3-1 victory) at Bollaert last week, the Sang and Or know that the conditions will be dantesque in the Loiret, facing a team in the fight for his surie. Penultimate equal to points with the first relegate – and barbarian – Laval, the USO could afford a huge breath of oxygen if successful. Rather coherent at the stage of the Source where they have a balanced balance (5v-4n-4d), the Orleans will not just watch the Lens play. It is a real undecided game that awaits us this Monday.
Prognosis points for Orléans Lens
8 of the last 9 meetings played by the RCL at a club ranked in one of the last six places in Ligue 2 have been less than 2.5 goals.
There were fewer than three goals scored in 5 of the last 8 outings of the USO at the Source Stadium.
Only five goals have been scored in the last three games played by the USO on its pitch.
Orléans Lens – Our forecast
It is a pivotal match for both teams and we should not be expecting mad flights. As eight times in the last nine trips of the RCL at a club ranked in the last six Ligue 2, less than 3 goals will be entered.
