Lens vs Red Star
France Ligue 2
Date: Saturday, 4th August 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Bollaert-Delelis (Lens).
Lens and Red Star will go head to head on Saturday afternoon as both are looking to pick up early season points.
Last weekend Lens got a superb result beating Orleans away from home 2-0 and find themselves in 2nd place. Red Star though were not as lucky as they lost at home by 2-1 against Niort.
The bookmakers are very clear who on they think will win this game and that falls to the home side, Lens. They are odds on to win at around 1.60. Red Star can be backed as the wide outsiders at 5.00.
Red Star will be under a lot of pressure in this game and won’t see much of the ball and will have to fully concentrate in the early exchanges and try to break on the counter for any chance of getting something from this game.
Lens vs Red Star Head to Head

Lens vs Red Star Prediction
Although history has seen quite a few goals in this fixture we believe we won’t see this at this point of time because we are only into the 2nd league game of the season.
Our main bet will be to see a draw at half time, we will also back for smaller stakes to see the correct score at 0-0 also at half time. Lens are clearly the bookmaker’s favourite to win this game, but their big odds on price doesn’t have much value so early on in the season.
