Lens vs Lille: Prediction and Betting Tips

19:00, May 07 2021
Lens vs Lille prediction for Friday’s Ligue 1 round 36 clash at Stade Bollaert-Delelis in Lens. Battling for fifth place on the Ligue 1 table and a Europa League qualification stage spot Lens, host Lille who are edging closer to be crowned as French Champions. Read on for our free prediction and betting tips.

A great season for Lens looking to top it off with a European spot

Lens have done extremely well in Ligue 1 after their promotion from Ligue 2 last season. With 56 points in the fifth place, they have performed much better than they did the last time they played in Ligue 1 in the 2014/15 season when at this stage they had 26 points.

Coach Franck Haise’s team is battling for fifth place with Marseille and Rennes with three matches to be played for the Ligue 1 season to end. This is one of the two matches left for them to play at home and although they are playing Lille who are the top title contenders, Haise’s men will do their best to get points at their own Stade Bollaert-Delelis.

Lens have just one defeat in 14 matches and that was in their last match against PSG another title contender. Lens were not an easy opponent for the Parisians as “Les Sang et Or” had 15 goal attempts in the match but managed to score just one goal.

Lille edging ever closer to the Ligue 1 title

Three matches separate Lille from the Ligue 1 title in what would be one of the biggest surprises in recent years in France. Lille have already done great o be able to battle with star-studded teams like PSG, Lyon, and Monaco. Coach Christoph Galtier knows his team must take matters into their own hands and win all three matches.

Les Dogues play St.Etienne at home and Angers away after their visit to Lens. Both of those teams are at mid-table and are winnable matches for Lille. Coach Galtier must be careful with the Lens match though as the hosts are battling for fifth place

Lille haven’t lost to Lens in their seven matches and had won the opposite fixture at Stade Pierre-Mauroy 4-0. Coach Galtier has to prepare well to avoid any surprises. Lille have not lost in five matches winning four and drawing four, they have the best defense in Ligue 1 with 22 goals conceded.

Key Stats

  • Lens have never beaten Lille before
  • Lens have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 11 matches
  • In their last eight matches, Lens have conceded an average of 1.38 goals per game
  • Lille had clean sheets in 59% of their away games
  • Lille are unbeaten in 12 away matches

Lens vs Lille Prediction

This is definitely one of the most anticipated games of this round as it can determine a lot in terms of Ligue 1 title winners and the teams that will play in Europe next season. Lille are the favorites to win and we will back a Lille win for our primary prediction as coach Galtier’s team has all the determination not to lose any points in this match.

On the other hand, Lens have shown that they can trouble the big teams as they did against PSG in their last match after beating Les Parisiens back in September. They drew against Lyon and Marseille in their recent matches and we think Lens can cause a major upset in this game and thus for our second prediction we will back double chance home win or draw.
