Note: The odds are subject to change on Netbet, so ensure to confirm with the bookmaker before placing your bet.

Lens to score first

The hosts are our favorites to find the net first in this game. Lens has a better scoring record than the visitors and are unbeaten in the last five games. The visitors have suffered massive losses in recent games despite finding the net in all their last seven fixtures. Etienne's troubled defence is why we think Lens has an upper hand to find the net first in this fixture.

Lens to win

Lens has all it takes to bag a win in their second game of the season. While both teams secured a point in their first game of the season in a similar fashion of 1-1 draw, this game creates a different atmosphere for Lens. The hosts completed the double against Etienne last season, starting with a 2-0 at home and a 3-2 victory in the reverse fixture. Moreover, Lens has a better record of 2W and 3D in the last five games than Etienne’s 1W, 1D and 3L in as many games.

Goals on both sides

Etienne may have had a rough patch in pre-season, losing their last three games before the new season; the visitors bagged at least a goal in the last seven games, including all six pre-season games. They also put one behind the net against Lorient in the first match of the season. On the other hand, Lens scored in six of their last seven games.

Match Preview: Lens Hoping to Complete another Double against St. Etienne in the New Season

Lens defeated Saint-Etienne both ways last season. Their first game against Etienne last season was a 2-0 clean sheet victory at home and rounded off with a 3-2 victory on the road exactly five months later. However, it is noteworthy that a fixture between these teams has always been a tight one. In 18 previous encounters dating back to a 0-0 result in January 2005, there have only been three draws. Lens has 8W while Saint-Etienne has 7W in those meetings.

This fixture is only the second of the season but we can draw from forms on both sides to make a prediction. The hosting manager, Franck Haise, has two victories over Etienne’s manager, Claude Puel, in two meetings. It is another major highlight in this game, and it could have a massive impact on the game.
