Lens vs Quevilly Rouen
2017/18 French Ligue 2
Date: Monday, 18th August 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Bollaert-Delelis, Lens.
Lens welcome QUevilly Rouen at Stade Bollaert-Delelis in the Round 8 of French Ligue 2. Both sides are in the horrendous form as they collected poor five points combined. Lens were quite solid in the previous season, but in the 2017/18 campaign they might struggle for the survival in the second tier if they continue with awful performances.
After seven games played in Ligue 2, Lens are the only team that are yet to pick up a single point this season – they were beaten in all seven encounters. On Friday, they fell in Valenciennes with the minimal result of 1-0.
Lens scored 7 goals so far but allowed 16. The home side has the imperative to grab the first points of the season on the home turf.
The away team is in the similar position as Lens, but they have recently concluded their horrible run with a victory over Nancy. The aforementioned 2-0 home victory is a huge confidence boost ahead and Quevilly will try to use the momentum against woeful Lens.
Quevilly have grabbed only one point on the road so far from the draw with Lorient.
Lens vs Quevilly Rouen: Head-to-head

Due to Lens’ painful defending, Quevilly Rouen are likely to score one goal here, especially as they will be carried with the recent victory. Therefore, Lens will need at least two goals here to grab the desired victory, so we can expect an open match with plentiful of chances for both sides.
