Nantes vs Lens Picks, Odds, and Predictions

Lens has been a true hit this season in Ligue 1, they are one of only three teams who haven't lost a game so far, and they are winning games by playing attacking football their fans enjoy. Nantes is the opposite, they only have one win to their name while struggling to find players who can score goals.

Over 2.5 Goals

Nantes had conceded a goal in their last six matches, in a total of 11 goals. Their defensive line will be further tested by a potent, and reliable Lens attack. What is curious about Lens this season is how they dominate games with possession. In their last game, a win against Troyes, even though the result was only 1-0, Lens had 63 percent possession of the ball. Their attack, regardless of that game, has been on fire scoring 16 goals which is the third-best mark in the league. Last season, when these teams met it was a true goal bonanza, Nantes won 3-2, while the second game was a draw 2-2.

Lens to Win

Even though it's been seven years since the last time Lens beat Nantes in Ligue 1, the time right now is perfect to change that perspective. Even though Nantes is the host, Lens are the ones who are playing great football this season scoring virtually in every game they played. Even further, their defense has been strong and consistent conceding only 7 goals. Nantes has scored only 8 goals this term, besides Moses Simon who score 3 goals, they haven't had any other player stepping up in front of an opposition goal.

How to defend against the best forward line?

That is the question facing Nantes manager Antoine Kombouare who has been struggling to find players who will be consistent enough to provide results. The positive thing however for Nantes is the fact that they haven't lost against Lens at home for the last 10 matches. The worrying fact for Nantes is how they react after a tough European challenge, especially after they lost to Qarabag 3-0.

Nantes predicted 11: Lafont, Castelletto, Girott, Pallois, Merlin, Chirivella, Simon, Sissoko, Appiah, Guessand, Ganago.

Lens will try to end a drought of wins in Nantes, 10 games is a long run, but the good thing is their current form playing away from home. They haven't lost in seven straight matches. Playing an opponent who they struggled against in the past will provide further motivation for a team managed by Franck Haise.

Lens predicted 11: Samba, Gradit, Danso, Medina, Cabot, Samed, Poreba, Haidara, Sotoca, Openda, Costa.
