Lens vs Bordeaux
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 19th September 2020
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Bollaert-Delelis (Lens)
Lens will play Bordeaux in this early game on Friday as they try and reach the top 5 in the league. That sentence could take you by surprise but Lens have started the season well after losing their opening game against Nice.
Since then they infamously beat PSG, although the champions did have a depleted team it was still a great result. Then they followed that up with an entertaining 3-2 win at Lorient. Striker Ignatius Ganago has already scored two goals for the club and is form and looks dangerous. Lens will welcome back being at home again.
Bordeaux are in 10th place and remain unbeaten so far. They drew their last game 0-0 with Lyon which the club would have been happy with. Their only away game so far has been against Angers which they won 2-0. And that was seen as an impressive result for the club. Despite Lens’ good start Bordeaux would go in front of them if they could get a win on Friday.

Lens vs Bordeaux: Prediction
We have two equal teams with two equal mindsets and this will not be an easy game to call. But if we dare we will stake our claim in Lens. They want to prove their worth in the league just like a team like Brest did last season and what happens is that teams from Ligue 2 build up a good resistance at home, this is where the majority of the points will come from.
Lens are in good form and full of confidence. We will also back over 2.5 goals which is good value also, the pricing suggests that the expectation is to see few goals here but history says 3 goals or more will strike in 7 out of 10 games.
Lens v Bordeaux Bet Tips:
