Lens to improve their home record with a win

A very good start to the 2021/21 Ligue 1 season saw Lens reach second place after eight rounds. In fact, the Blood and Gold could have more than the 15 points they gathered so far. To demonstrate, Lens collected more points on the road, ten (3W, 1D), than at home, five (1W, 2D). 

The one-time French champions in 1997-98, Lens had a great win in the last round away to Marseille. In effect, coach Franck Haise’s team leaped over L’OM with that victory to clinch second place. As a result, Lens kept their fine record of just one loss since the start of the season. Clearly, Haise’s men are playing with very high spirit as they showed in their win against Sampaoli’s team.

Lens Key Points

  • Lens won one of their four home games this season
  • The Blood and Gold scored in three of their four home games
  • The average number of goals scored in Lens home matches this season is 1.5

Reims to battle for at least a point

Historically, Reims is one of the most successful clubs in France. Notably, they won six Ligue 1 titles, two Coupe de France trophies, and five Tropheedes Champions titles. Concerning their recent form, the Red and Whites have five more points than they did last season. 

In their last match in Ligue 1, Reims beat Nantes 3-1 at home. Coach Oscar Garcia’s team scored three goals in a match for the second time this season incidentally. However, the Red and Whites need to be at their best in this tough away game. Certainly, one defeat on the road so far this season is encouraging as they face the second-best team in Ligue 1.

Reims Key Points

  • Reims had two clean sheets in their four away games
  • The Red and Whites scored in five of their last seven matches
  • Under 2.5 goals were scored in Reims’ three of four away games

Lens vs Reims Prediction

Definitely, Lens are on a roll with three wins in their last four matches. Moreover, coach Haise’s team will make sure to put their shaky home form aside and grab all three points here.

On the other side, Reims will be content with a point, just like they did in a thrilling 4-4 ​​draw last November. Also, in eight matches, Garcia’s team managed four draws two of them on the road.

In conclusion, an odds of 1.87 is a good value at Vbet for a Lens win. Also considering their results and form, Lens look to be the better side and may indeed end up winning this one.
