Lille will be the favourites to win this Sunday night clash with Lens.

Lille come into this game in 3rd place and are only one of two clubs in Ligue 1 still unbeaten. They have won their last two games in a row and have scored 9 goals and conceded just twice. They have had a fantastic start and if they win and Rennes lose or draw they will go top of the table.

At home Lille have conceded just once this season so far and their last game ended in an easy 3-0 win away to Strasbourg. Their last home game finished in a 2-0 win against Nantes.

Lens have been the surprise package so far and have started very well and are in 4th place. They have lost just once and have won 4 of their six games played so far.

Their last game was impressive as they beat Saint Etienne 2-0 who were at the time in form. Away from home the club have gone their last two games unbeaten and their last away game finished in a 1-1 draw against Nimes.

Lille vs Lens: Prediction

This should be a cracking game of football and it is no surprise to see this as the main TV showdown on Saturday evening which at the beginning of the season couldn’t have been guessed.

Lens have been so refreshing and we are looking forward to this game. We have to respect the quality of Lille and we think they will win this game. They rarely concede goals but Lens have been so good so we will also back both teams to score. We think this will be very entertaining and full of goals and so for smaller stakes back 4 goals or more.

Lille vs Lens Bet Tips:

  • Lille to beat Lens at 1.80 (4/5)
  • Over 3.5 goals at 3.75 (11/4)
  • Both teams to score at 1.80 (4/5).
