All square

Lens have been one of the most in-form sides in Ligue 1 this season; they've accumulated 10 points from a possible 12 so far, and are tied on points with league leaders PSG. As a matter of fact, Lens are unbeaten in their last 18 matches in all competitions; they've won 12 and drawn six of those matches. Just like Lens, Lorient have not lost a lot of games recently; they are unbeaten in their last five matches, with three wins and two draws. Although Lens are the favourites here, we believe that both teams' respective unbeaten runs will continue here, with the spoils being shared at the end of this match.

Will either side lose their unbeaten record?

Both Lens and Lorient have made fantastic starts to the season with both having managed to avoid defeat to this point. With the two meeting here, there is a serious chance that one of the sides lose that unblemished record but, for us neutral fans, it should be a good watch.

Franck Haise will be happy to have no new injury concerns heading into this match; with the exception of Adam Buksa and Wuilker Faríñez, who haven't played this season, Lens are coming into this match with a clean bill of health. However, Lens have a near-perfect record so far this season, so they should do just fine.

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

Just like Lens, Lorient have no major fitness concerns going into this match; Igor Silva hasn't played since he injured his thigh in their first pre-season friendly, while Quentin Boisgard remains a doubt with a muscle problem. It'll be interesting to see if Lorient can put an end to Lens's 18 match unbeaten run.

Lorient Predicted lineup – Mvogo, Kalulu, Laporte, Talbi, Goff, Abergel, Feé, Ouattara, Ponceau, Lauriente, Moff
