Valenciennes vs Lens Prediction
Valenciennes had taken on the worst of the lot, Orleans, the last match-day. And due to the huge mismatch, the former cruised to a win, but still could manage a paltry 0-1 win.
Meanwhile, Lens had cruised to a 4-0 win against Sochaux, the prior game week. The home advantage and the red card received by the guests might have helped the toppers to another routine win.
This Friday, consider that Lens are the best team in the contest. They are placed at the top of the table and have scored the most number of goals of all the 20 squads in contention. They have also scored the most on the road, and so far have lost just once away from home.
In the meantime, Valenciennes were winless in eight of their previous ten overall games, and in their last four in front of the home crowd.
In addition, Lens hold a dominant h2h record against this opponent, even at this venue.
Taking into account all these observations, rightfully expect the toppers, Lens, to post a convincing win this Friday.
