Lens vs Angers SCO
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 29 November 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Bollaert-Delelis.
The Blood and Gold have a game in hand, and are still just two points away from possessing a European spot. Do also note that they are just six points below that of toppers and defending champions, PSG.
They have been consistent in their performances lately, and particularly so at home. And in h2h encounters over the years, they have shown great defensive strength at this same stadium.
Meanwhile, Les Scoistes have struggled to post points on the board in the past several match-days, and they also have conceded goals in plenty in the process.
Likely, it appears that Lens are the favorites this weekend to post the win.

Lens vs Angers: Prediction
The Blood and Gold were held to a 1-1 draw at home the last match-day, by Nantes. It was a bit heartbreaking for the hosts, as they led for almost the entirety of the game, and conceded the equalizer in the 81st minute – via a penalty.
In the meantime, Stephane Moulin’s men lost 0-1 at home against Lyon. The sole goal and the winner had come in the 78th minute.
Going on, Haise’s men were unbeaten in ten of their previous eleven overall match-ups, and they had also scored two or more goals in six of their preceding eleven games. In the process, they had also gone on a five-match winning run as well.
At home, they are on an unbeaten run of eight match-ups, six of which were wins. They had also scored two or more goals in five of their former seven such games, and are on a 14-fixture streak where they found the back of the net at least once.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in six of their last ten overall matches, and they have a total of just three wins away from home this whole season. Two of these victories had come against teams from the bottom-most tier.
Considering these factors, expect Lens to dominate proceedings this Sunday at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis.
