Good Attacking Performance

Lens have a good scoring record this season, with three netted so far. This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Seko Fofana (2), Ignatius Kpene Ganago (1), and Wuilker Farinez. Teams that leak goals on a consistent basis, don’t tend to win anything, such is the situation with Lens so far, having conceded 3 goals in their last matches so far.

Franck Haise will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of five of his Lens players.
