Lorient vs Lens
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 13th September 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade du Moustoir.

We have a very interesting game to get our teeth into on Sunday afternoon when the two newly promoted teams Lorient and Lens will meet each other.

Lorient did very well to beat Strasbourg at this ground on the opening weekend winning the game 3-1. However they followed that up when they lost their next game away to Saint Etienne. It was an expected result and Lorient could well struggle on the road this season, the majority of their points will be coming at home.

Lens are one place below Lorient in 12th place. They lost their first match 2-1 against Nice. But in their 2nd game they beat the champions PSG 1-0. This was a fantastic result for Lens although most of the first team of PSG could not play as they have Covid-19. But still you can’t take anything away from Lens and their confidence will be at an all time high and it was a great three points to achieve.

Lorient vs Lens: Head to Head

  • The last time the teams met here was in 2018 when they played out a 2-2 draw.
  • Lens have not won at this ground since 2008.
  • There is a 50% chance to see over 3.5 goals.

Lorient vs Lens: Prediction

We expect to see an open game and Lorient will be no pushovers at home. The worry for Lens is that the PSG win could go to their heads, if they come out here all attack Lorient has the quality to deal with them, and that is why we will back the home side at good value odds to win this game.

We cannot believe the price of Lorient striker Adrian Grbic who is 3.00 with some establishments to score anytime. He is a very dangerous player and is worth picking.

Lorient vs Lens: Bet Tips:

  • Lorient to beat Lens at 2.10 (11/10)
  • Anytime goalscorer: Adrian Grbic (Lorient) at 3.00 (2/1).
