Lens vs Brest – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Can Lens’ new-look forward line hit the ground running against Brest on Sunday in Ligue 1? Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Lens to Win

Lens slipped to a 1-0 defeat when they last welcomed Brest to the Stade Bollaert-Delelis, though a reverse of that outcome could be worth backing in Sunday’s Ligue 1 clash. The hosts have an exciting new attacker to debut in Lois Openda and with the home crowd expected to bring plenty of energy to Sunday’s opener, Lens should prove hard to stop. With that in mind, a stake on a home win this weekend is recommended.

Lois Openda to Score Anytime

Belgian striker Lois Openda scored 19 times in the Eredivisie for Vitesse last season and his capture in the summer was considered something of a coup for Lens. The 22-year-old can be devastating in the final third and he will be doubly determined to make his mark on his Ligue 1 debut against Brest. Openda has the skills to impress on matchday one and he could be a solid choice in the anytime scorer stakes.
