Lens to win again

To be fair, Ajaccio have lost just two of their last 14 matches in all competitions; they won eight of those games, with four draws. However, it's important to point out that Ajaccio are a newly-promoted side, and most of those matches were in Ligue 2; in fact, Ajaccio suffered two losses in four games so far this summer, including their opening league match. Lens, on the other hand, have enjoyed some fine form in recent months; they are unbeaten in 15 straight matches, with 10 wins and five draws. Also, Lens won five of their last six games, they kept five clean sheets in their last seven matches too. With both teams' recent form in mind, we are predicting a win for the visitors.

Both teams will score

Ajaccio have not been able to keep the goals out; they have seen their defence breached in six of their last seven games, with one goal allowed per game on average. Conversely, Ajaccio have scored their fair share of goals; they found the back of the net in 11 of their last 13 matches. Similarly, Lens have not had any difficulty scoring goals; as they scored in 13 of their last 15 matches. These are two teams that score goals consistently; and considering both teams scored in five of Ajaccio's last seven games, both teams will likely score here.

Can Lens make it six points from six?

Lens made a winning start to their Ligue 1 season whilst Ajaccio fell short in week one as they travelled to Lyon. With the season still in it's infancy, it's not exactly a huge deal at this stage but their fans will still want a win to come around sooner rather than later. Lens, meanwhile, will be keen to build some momentum.

Ajaccio kick-started their Ligue 1 campaign with a 2:1 loss at Lyon; they now have two wins, two draws and two losses in their last six games. Olivier Pantaloni's men will hope to put their recent loss behind them as they take on Lens; it'll be interesting to see if they can upset an in-form Lens side.

Ajaccio Predicted lineup – Leroy, Alphonse, Gonzalez, Avinel, Diallo, Bayala, Marchetti, Mangani, Nouri, Idrissy, Spadanuda

Lens have been unstoppable these past few months; they have no losses in their last 15 matches in all competitions, with 10 wins and five draws. It's worth noting that Lens have five wins in their last six games, including their opening Ligue 1 match last weekend; they'll be eyeing their sixth win in seven games today.

Lens Predicted lineup – Samba, Gradit, Danso, Medina, Frankowski, Samed, Fofana, Machado, Sotoca, Dacosta, Openda
