Lens vs Monaco
French Ligue 1
Date: 21 May 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Bollaert-Delelis (Lens).

Lens and Monaco will take on each other in one of the most exciting games of the final day in Ligue 1 on Saturday evening at Stade Bollaert-Delelis.

Monaco have a great chance to secure the second-place finish and a place in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League next season with a win here, while Lens could theoretically skip Nice and Strasbourg to earn the UEFA Europa Conference League berth for the next year with a three-pointer on Saturday.

Both outfits will come into this on a high, following their great spells of form in the recent weeks.

Lens are thus unbeaten in seven straight league outings, five of which they have won. This run involves a 1-3 comeback victory away at Troyes seven days ago.

The team’s top scorer Arnaud Kalimuendo-Muinga was on target on the occasion, taking his total Ligue 1 tally to 12 goals this season.

Monaco are, however, on an even better run. No other club in the division has managed to pick up nine consecutive wins this season (not even sovereign champions PSG).

Monaco will travel to Stade Bollaert-Delelis on the back of nine successive Ligue 1 wins. They are flying high under new manager Philippe Clement.

The strong run includes a fantastic comeback against Brest last weekend as Les Monegasques cancelled out a two-goal deficit on the occasion, turning it into a 4-2 victory with a hat-trick from the league’s second top scorer Wissam Ben Yedder at Stade Louis II.

Lens vs Monaco Head-to-head

  • These two teams have already played each other twice this season.
  • Lens claimed a 0-2 victory in the league tie in August last year at Stade Louis II, but Monaco got their revenge with the 2-4 win at Stade Bollaert-Delelis in the last 16 round of Coupe de France in late-January this year.
  • Interestingly, only one of the last seven head to head affairs between these two outfits provided goals at both ends.

Lens vs Monaco Prediction

We can certainly expect goals on Saturday night at Stade Bollaert-Delelis knowing that both teams have been pretty inspired in the final third in the recent weeks.

Also, their previous H2H clash suggests another goals galore which is why we will take the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score pick as the main betting option at the odds of 1.80.

Lens vs Monaco Betting Tips

  • Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score @ 1.80 (4/5)
  • Wissam Ben Yedder to score anytime @ 1.83 (5/6) odd.
