Nantes and Lens shared the spoils in two Ligue 1 encounters last season. They also met in the Coupe de France fixture in February this year, a match that Lens won 4-2 in regular time. Find out how we are tipping these teams to perform against each other in the third meeting this year 2021.

Our Top Picks for Nantes vs Lens

Nantes has won only once in their last six outings. On the other hand, Lens comes to this game with as many victories in a similar run of fixtures. We have narrowed down to the best three picks for this match, which we explain as follows:

First Team to Score: Nantes @ 11/10 (2.10)

We are tipping Nantes to score the first goal in this fixture. The hosts pulled a surprise victory against Lorient last weekend on the back of two draws and three losses. On the other hand, Lens remains winless in four games due to challenges at the back. The hosts scored first in three out of five previous meetings. And while both sides are struggling, Nantes should build on their away victory last weekend to open the scoring in this game on home soil.

Anytime Goalscorer: Ludovic Blas 10/3 (4.33)

Ludovic Blas is Nantes top scorer with 7 goals in 16 Ligue 1 appearances this season. While he is nowhere close to Ligue 1 top scorer Jonathan David of Lille who has 11 goals, Ludovic Blas has been instrumental for the hosts. Blas has failed to score in two games now but we trust he will find the net in this fixture. It seems the French forward tends to hit the target after every one or two games.

Both teams to score @ 3/4 (1.75)

Lens will rely on their last weekend goalscorer Seko Fofana to find the net in this fixture. Seko opened the season by scoring three goals in the first four goals only to disappear from the scoreboard in eleven straight games. However, it seems things are beginning to look up again for the Ivorian after scoring in two consecutive matches before this fixture. That should be enough to bolster his confidence to help his side score against Nantes. The last three encounters between Nantes and Lens saw goals on both ends.

Game Preview: Will Nantes and Lens Break Last Season’s Deadlock?

Last season's encounters were proof that despite torrid moments Nantes endured against other Ligue 1 teams, Lens is an equal match. The first encounter away at Lens ended 1-1. The reverse fixture also ended 1-1. These teams met earlier this year in a cup fixture that saw six goals scored but ended 4-2 to Lens advantage. However, Nantes should fight to get all points in this match. Notably, Nantes never lost to Lens when playing at home in Ligue 1& Ligue 2 in the last nine Ligue 1 home fixtures. And while Lens scored at home to Nantes last season, the hosts are currently struggling defensively. Moreover, Nantes won six of the last nine home meetings against Lens with a clean sheet. Three games ended in a draw, one of which was a 0-0 outcome.
