Lens is unbeaten in their last five home ties and won four of them as well. In their last 20 attempts at home, the team lost just thrice. Le Havre, meanwhile, was winless in eight of their last nine matches, and in their last seven on the road. On top of that, they returned just three goals from their last seven road trips. In the meantime, Lens had recorded two or more goals in four of their last five home ties.
H2h ties also point to the hosts of the day as favorites. The last six games saw five times the teams at home taking the three points, and ten of the last twelve wins went to the hosts as well. Importantly, at this venue, Lens recorded five of the last six wins.
In addition, Lens is currently in possession of the last playoff spot and is being fiercely pursued by some in-form teams, who don’t trail by a safe point-difference. Lens needs to put in good performances in their remaining games to take part in the playoffs.
