Niort vs Lens PREVIEW & PREDICTION 24/09/2018

Monday, at 19:45, Niort will receive the Lens visit in a match for the 8th round in Ligue 2. The match will take place at Stade Rene Gaillard in Niort.

Ligue 2 occupant of the 6th place after 7 matches played so far, Niort has made a decent run so far, proving a very good mood, especially offensive. “Les chamois” scored 7 goals in the three home games played so far, and Lens is not bad at all. Philippe Montanier’s team has scored 10 goals in the six games played so far this season, and if it succeeds on Monday night in Niort, it would move to the second position, three points behind Metz, with and a less played match.

In the last ten direct confrontations between the two bands, Lens imposed five times, while the other five duels ended in a draw

The previous direct game took place in the last season’s return, when the two teams drew spectacularly on “Rene Gaillard”, score 2-2;

Lens’s last success on Niort‘s court dates back to April 2016 from a 1-0;

Given the circumstances of this game, we expect a spectacular hostile run. Since the difference in value between the two groups is one, we will choose to orient our bet to a goal-based scenario. Considering the relatively offensive style of the two combatants, and the ease with which they find their way to the opposing goal, we think we will see at least two goals in this confrontation.

PREDICTION: Under 2.5 goals @ 1.71
