Next Wednesday at 9:00pm GMT, on matchday 7 of the Ligue 1, we will see Lens play RCSA at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis.

RCSA will travel to Lens, as twelfth plays third in the table.

With the Ligue 1 season well into its stride, RC Lens have managed to gain 12 points

Lens will be full of confidence, going into this fixture on that back of two successive wins against Lille and Bordeaux. They will need this if they are to retain their run.

Success in football comes from winning more games than your opponents, simply put, if Lens can continue to extend their winning streak from two games then Franck Haise’s squad will have an incredible season. With 12 points, they currently sit third in the League having won three meetings and drawn three games.

Lens have won one game and drawn two fixtures of their three League matches at home this season.

RC Lens will see 15 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Good Attacking Performance

Lens will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (11). Their stand out attacking players have been Seko Fofana (3), Ignatius Kpene Ganago (2), and Gael Kakuta (1). Lens have conceded seven goals.

Going into Wednesday’s game, Franck Haise without two of his players, due to illness or injury.

RC Strasburg go into this meeting with seven points secured

RCSA will take a huge positive from their recent 3-0 win against FC Metz at the Stade de La Meinau.

RCSA keep finding ways to win, having secured two victories in their last three games is astonishing this season. With twelfth, they currently sit seven points in the League having won two matches, drawn one game, and lost three fixtures.

RCSA have lost two meetings of their two League matches on the road this season.

Winning this fixture will see RC Strasburg on 10 points.

Good Attacking Performance

This has been a good season so far for RCSA, in terms of goals scored (10). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Habib Diallo (3), Adrien Thomasson (2), and Ludovic Ajorque (2). Teams that leak goals on a consistent basis, don’t tend to win anything, such is the situation with RCSA so far, having conceded 11 goals in their last fixtures so far.

Injury and illness have depleted Julien Stephan’s RCSA and they will likely be missing three key personnel for Wednesday’s match.

Both clubs have previously met each other 32 times with the tally being 11 wins and 11 draws for Lens. In addition, the two sides have been unable to break the dead-lock on three occasions out of the last five fixtures, resulting in draws.

Lens have a win probability of 50.0 percent.
