LENS vs TOULOUSE – BETTING PICK
FRANCE LIGUE ONE
On the back of this season’s 8-3-1, Lens is currently 2nd in the League table. From those twelve matches, Les Sang et Or conceded just 8 goals. In fact, over the last six games, that number goes down to one goal!
In the last round, Franck Haise’s team won in Marseille. That was their fourth 1-0 victory in the last 6 games, with the others being against Troyes, Lyon, and Montpellier.
The only time Lens lost this season was a 1-0 defeat in Lille. However, they could only draw away matches in Ajaccio, Reims, and Nantes. As it stands, the hosts are a perfect 6-0-0 at home, with Rennes being another victim!
For today’s match, Lens will need to take the initiative. That means playing with a more aggressive formation, thus we are expecting Haise to switch back to a 3-4-2-1.
With that in mind, expect Openda to lead the line with Florian Sotoca and David Costa supporting. After coming on as a substitute, Costa scored the winner in Marseille! One player is certain to start and that is goalkeeper Brice Samba. The 28-year-old is in the form of his life, and his presence gives this young team plenty of confidence.
Lens will need to replace suspended Fecund Medina, and Jimmy Cabot is out with an injured knee. Buksa and reserve goal-keeper Farinez are the other two players missing for Lens. On a positive note, Jonathon Gradit is available after recovering from a collarbone injury.
Meanwhile, season-promoted Toulouse is doing better than expected. At the time of writing, Philippe Montanier’s team has 16 points from 12 games and they are 10th in the table.
Les Violets come into this match on the back of four games without defeat. Two of those matches were home wins against Montpellier and Angers, while the others ended in draws against Lyon and Strasbourg.
The visitors will start tonight’s match without the suspended Rasmus Nicolaisen. The ever-present center-back was sent off for a second yellow card against Strasbourg. Other than that, the visitors are without Brazilian winger Rafael Ratao and Rhys Healey.
In conclusion, we expect Lens to win again! The visitors are missing two key players, whereas Les Sang et Or are in great shape. Since the visitors play hari-kari football, we are taking Haise’s men to cover the spread.
BET: LENS -1 (Asian handicap)
Asian Handicap explained. If Lens wins this match by exactly one goal, the bet is void and the stakes returned. The lens needs to win by two or more goals for the bet to be won. If it is a draw or Toulouse win, the bet is lost!
