Lens vs Clermont Foot
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 12 November 2022
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stade Bollaert-Delelis

Lens will play host to visiting rivals Clermont Foot in this Ligue 1 fixture on Saturday at Stade Bollaert-Delelis.

Clermont Foot were counted among the worst in the French top flight the past season. They were lucky to have avoided relegation to the Ligue 2 in their very first top flight run the past season.

Going on, they have started off with a demotivating 0-5 defeat against the French biggies PSG at home. Since then, they won five, drew four and lost four to bag a total of 19 points for positioning at the 10th spot in the table.

While not conceding many goals, they have a defense that concedes more goals than they score. In three of their last four games, they have had to face draws due to their defense leaking one goal to the offense’s one.

Meanwhile, Lens have been one of the top performing teams in the French top flight for the past several years. And it seems that they have started this new campaign on a good note as well.

Going on, Lens had missed out on a European ticket by just four points the last season. And it appears that they are determined to make amends this time around.

They are on a consistent winning run so far into this season. Do also note that, they are yet to make mistake in this season barring a single fixture . With their attacking line in full swing, expect a winning performance from Lens on Sunday.
