Lens vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 3rd February 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Bollaert-Delelis.
Lens have really impressed so far this season and they won their 10th game of the campaign last weekend when they beat Montpellier away from home 2-1.
With just 1 loss in their last four games Lens are in 7th place with 34 points. Victory could see them climb up to 5th depending on other results. At home Lens overall form has been mixed with 40% of games won but also 40% lost.
Recent home form is a worry for Lens though as they have lost 4 from their last 5 games and their last match here ended in a 1-0 defeat to Nice.
Marseille continue to struggle and they have lost a lot of ground now and gone their last 4 games without victory. That run includes losing their last 3 games in a row and Marseille are now down in 9th place and 2 points behind Lens.
The away side have not played for a week as their game at the weekend was postponed at the last minute and fans have rioted during the clubs training. There is an intense atmosphere and fans want answers as to why the club have been struggling lately.
Marseille’s last away game ended in a 3-1 defeat against Monaco although overall L’OM have won 50% of their games on the road.
Lens vs Marseille: Head to Head
- The clubs have not played this fixture since 2015 when Marseille won 4-0.
- In the reverse fixture earlier this season Lens won 1-0.
- There is a 70% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Lens vs Marseille: Prediction
This is a fixture where normally Marseille would be the odds on favourites to win but actually they are odds of 3.00 (2/1) to do so, and we should snap it up.
True Marseille are going through poor form but they are a much better team than Lens player for player and it only takes the team to click to come together.
Fans rioting may have woke some of the senior squad players up from their slumber and Marseille are just too good a price not to get on. Lens are dangerous but haven’t been consistent enough and while it makes sense on form to go with the home team, Marseille should not be overlooked.
