The game to end in a draw

This game is likely to generate a lot of heat as both sides battle it out to keep their good run of form. While Lens lost the last match played in mid-week, it was all thanks to a red card to defender Kevin Danso in the 50th minute before Lens conceded the only goal of the match in the 67th minute. The hosts have two clean sheets in seven games and have leaked only eight goals, three more than Marseille. Moreover, Lens won away against Marseille last season and bagged a point in the reverse fixture that ended 2-2. This fixture will be no different because even H2H shows this matchup is always a tough duel. We settle for a draw for a great price of 11/4 on Grosvenor Sports.

Few goals

A tough duel between Marseille and Lens should yield only a few goals. We think there will be a few goals in this match, probably fewer than three. It is a battle that should see both sides remain in the top four, albeit, under precarious circumstances as fifth-placed Lorient could still go all the way up.

Both teams will score

Given that this game pits two in-form teams against each other, Lens will want to forget their 10-man misfortune in midweek to bounce back for a good result. Both sides have failed to score in only one Ligue 1 match since the new season started.
