Tip Reasoning

  • Lens are unbeaten in seven of their last nine home games.
  • Bordeaux have just sacked their manager after a run of five defeats in six games.
  • Bordeaux have Ligue 1’s worst defensive record by a considerable margin.

A perfect opportunity for Lens to focus on improving form

Back-to-back defeats ahead of this clash have left Lens’ hopes of a European finish looking forlorn, though they remained in a group of four teams battling it out for fourth place with just four points separating all of them ahead of the weekend games.

A 2-0 defeat to Marseille last time out was Lens’ second home league defeat of the campaign and there is seemingly no better fixture to turn that around quickly against a Bordeaux side who are threatened with relegation, having conceded a whopping 2.5 goals per-match on average.

New manager bounce for Bordeaux?

With Petkovic out of the door just seven months after he was appointed as Bordeaux boss, it remains unclear in which direction they will head now. The visitors are potentially just one win away from exiting the drop zone, though their away form is of serious concern, having conceded 14 consecutive goals without reply across their last three trips.

No matter what happens with the managerial situation before kick off, I predict that Lens will simply have too much for this out-of-sorts Bordeaux side.

A home win does not provide the greatest value, though it looks like the right choice based on the form & current circumstances which is compounded by Bordeaux’s lengthy list of absentees.
