Lens vs Dijon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 21st February 2021
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Bollaert Delelis.
Lens come into this game with no defeats in their last four, although their last 3 games have ended in draws. The club are in 7th position and have 37 points.
There is a good chance that Lens could surprise many by qualifying for Europe next season and they have really punched above their weight this season.
It’s been almost a month since Lens lost a game and last weekend they drew against Reims with that game ending 1-1. At home Lens have won 4 and lost 4.
Dijon are in very poor form and have lost their last 5 games in a row. They are bottom of the league and 8 points from safety. They could go 19th with a win but they have won just two times so far this season.
It’s no surprise to see that Dijon has the 2nd to worst away record in Ligue 1 where they have earned just 9 points from a possible 36.
Lens vs Dijon: Head to Head
The teams have not met in this fixture with Lens being the home side since 2016 and this was in Ligue 2. The match finished as a 1-1 draw.
Earlier in the season in the reverse fixture Lens won 1-0.
The clubs have played each other 4 times when Lens have been at home in the last decade and Lens have just one win with the other 3 meetings ending as draws.
Lens vs Dijon: Prediction
This should be a straight forward victory for Lens although history tells us that these games tend to end in draws and of course Lens have been full of draws of late.
This is why we will take the risk and back Dijon on the handicap. Dijon are in very poor form but they have surprised at moments this season and even though they are last in the league they can play good football also.
Lens simply haven’t been very convincing in the last month so we don’t see them as favourites and Dijon might be able to cause a little surprise.
