Lens preview: Can Lens stop the bleeding?

While they had a really tough schedule lately, playing with four of the top five teams in Ligue 1 in the last five rounds, three losses in these matches have seriously hurt Lens' bid for a Champions League spot. That being said, Lens can still get there since they are currently just four points behind Lille in fourth place.

Meanwhile, Deiver Machado, Jonathan Gradit, and Jimmy Cabot are on the team's injury list at this time.

Player to watch: Elye Wahi

With seven goals in Ligue 1 this season, Wahi is Lens' top goalscorer so far. The young French forward also contributed two assists and that's why he's our player to watch against Le Havre.

Can Wahi score first?

Three of the seven goals that Wahi scored in the league so far have been the first goals of the match, so he might be a good choice for the first goalscorer in this game as well.
