Lens vs Saint-Etienne
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 3rd October 2020
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: PStade Bollaert-Delelis (Lens).
Lens have a tough fixture at the weekend as they take on Saint Etienne who have started the season well.
The home side have started positively too considering they are newly promoted and are in sixth place. After losing their first game of the season you have to give credit to the side who have now gone their last 4 games unbeaten. A three game winning streak was stopped last weekend as Lens drew away to Nimes with that game finishing 1-1 but the club will be more than satisfied with their start to the campaign and of course that includes beating PSG.
Saint Etienne were unbeaten but that ended last weekend as they came up short against Rennes and lost 3-0. The club are in 4th place with 11 points and just two behind the leaders but they have now gone two matches without victory after they drew 2-2 away to Nantes in the previous week.

The clubs haven’t played here since 2014 when Saint Etienne won 1-0.

There is a 70% chance to see over 2.5 goals but also a 60% chance to see over 3.5 goals.
Lens vs Saint-Etienne Prediction
On paper this should be an away win but perhaps Saint Etienne are hitting a bad patch of form, it isn’t easy to tell so early on in the league. Also we have to respect Lens’ form which has been very good.
The best choices to go for here is to concentrate on the goals market. History says lots of goals and these teams have proven already that they have that in them so this is a good market for us.
For smaller stakes we will back the correct score which always represents good value.
