Brest vs Lens Prediction and Analysis

Lens with 24 points to their name are the team nearest to PSG in terms of points. Their chase for the title has not exactly been ideal recently as they have lost 3 of their preceding 7 games.

Going on they are closer to Lorient in 13th position than they are to the league leaders. Such a run of games needs to be avoided sooner rather than later in order to stop the Parisians from running away with the league title.

The Pirates on the other hand after avoiding the relegation playoffs by a point last season finishing 17th in the league find themselves in the same position 13 matches into the campaign. After going 11 fixtures without a win they registered back to back wins prior to the international break.

The visitors have lost back to back matches on the road but considering the losses came against top half of the table teams and it accounts for their only away losses in the season and with them going up against a team with just 1 home win, I have backed Lens to walk away with the win.

RC Lens have scored 2 or more goals in all but 1 of their wins this season and they are going up against a team with just one clean sheet all season. Expect at least 2 goals from the away side.
