Orleans vs Lens
France Ligue 2
Date: Friday, 28th July 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Source (Orleans).

Orleans finished in 12th place last season in a season that was very average for the club but they did survive and keep their heads above water. On Friday night they will open up their Ligue 2 campaign when they play Lens.

Orleans are a good price to win but Lens just shade this with the bookmakers and have been made slight favourites and not odds on which is always good value for us.

Orleans objective this season will be to improve on last season because they finished over 20 points behind a play-off place. They have the quality at home but have been lacking results away and this is a formula the team will have to work out.

Lens finished below Orleans last season on 43 points but have brought in some players and changed coach and adjusted their formation, they are determined to get back to Ligue 1 next season.

Orleans vs Lens: Head to Head

  • Orleans have won the last 3 games between the two teams.
