Le Havre vs Lens
France Ligue 2
Date: Saturday 27th October 2018
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Oceane (Le Havre).
Lens will be underdogs to win this Ligue 2 Saturday afternoon clash when they will face Le Havre. Even though Lens are the better side this season this isn’t a ground they like coming too.
Le Havre are in 9th place and 11 points behind the league leaders Metz and 10 behind Lens. They have poor recent form coming into this game having lost back to back matches against Beziers and Ajaccio, two matches they would have been expected to win.
At home they have only 1 win in their last 5 games and Le Havre actually have a better away record than they do at home which is uncommon.
Lens had to play on Monday night so they have had less rest than their opponents but it was an evening to remember for them as they ran out 5-0 winners over GFC Ajaccio. Lens have been in brilliant form and are just 1 point behind the leaders Metz.
They have not lost a game for almost 2 months coming into this one and when they did it was against Metz, the best team so far in the league. Lens have the 2nd best away record in the league, where from 6 games they have won 4, drawn 1 and lost 1.
Le Havre vs Lens: Head to Head
- Havre have won the last 4 games at home when playing Lens.
- Lens have no wins away from home v Le Havre this century.
- Lens have only beaten Le Havre in any game once since 2013.
Le Havre vs Lens: Prediction
Lens do not have a good record at this ground, however we feel that so much has changed this season that the club should be able to claim a rare victory here.
Lens are not just winning games they are scoring goals too and they should be too much for Le Havre. The difference in quality is there to see. We will back the away side to win and score some goals too.
