Our Best Two Predictions for Lens vs Bordeaux
A 3-2 victory in the reverse game that ended in Lens favour gives the visitors some impetus in this second meeting of the season. Moreover, more than two goals in the last six meetings hint at a high scoring outcome in this game. Here are our best predictions for Lens vs Bordeaux game.
Lens to win first-half 19/20 (1.95)
Lens is our favourite to win the first half of this game. The hosts have been exceptional at home and away. In this fixture against struggling Bordeaux, backing Lens to beat Bordeaux is sensible especially if we look at how Bordeaux has performed away from home. The visitors have the third-worst away run in the league after 2W, 4D and 5L in 11 trips. We expect Lens to get an early goal and win the first half of this game.
Both teams to score 3/4 (1.75)
Another good bet for Lens vs Bordeaux is backing goals on both ends. Only two games in the last 11 meetings did not have goals on both ends. Moreover, there were goals on both ends in four of the last five encounters. A high scoreline is expected in this game, especially because both teams are struggling to defend.

Lens vs Bordeaux Ligue 1 Fixture Preview, Team News and Lineups
Bordeaux won three of the last five meetings with Lens. The other two games ended in Lens favour. But despite the good record against the hosts, Bordeaux have struggled to impress this season. Even more worrying for Bordeaux head coach, Petkovic, is the fact that his team has posted only 2 victories in 11 away games so far.
On the other hand, Lens head coach, Haise, will look to get his sixth home victory in 12 games. The hosts have posted 5 wins on home soil and lost only as much as Bordeaux has won on the road. That leaves everything cut out for Lens. The hosts have this game to lose. And with just four points adrift of the fifth spot, narrowing the gap should be main agenda for Franck Haise.
The visitors have a tough duel ahead as they make this trip to Stade Bollaert-Delelis. The third-worst away record for Bordaux is a reason enough to be jittery before this game. Even more important for the visitors is a desire to escape the red zone. Bordeaux is currently second-last in Ligue 1 after 23 games.
Lens predicted lineup: Leca, Danso, Wooh, Medina, Clauss, Fofana, Doucoure, Frankwski, Kakuta, Kalimuendo, and Sotoca.
Bordeaux predicted lineup: Poussin, Mensah, Pembele, Medioub, Marcelo, Fransergio, Guilavogui, Elis, Adli, Oudin and Hwang.
