Lu, 19:45: Quevilly Rouen – Lens

The hosts failed to impress in the match with Nancy opting a very important victory in the fight to avoid relegation from Ligue 2. Although they were clearly dominated in the first half when they received a goal, they in second came back with a total of 6 big occasions. In the 57′-61 ‘range, they scored twice to stay with a man in a minute and 69 minutes, but then locked up perfectly afterwards. Three stages now have opted for other important points, in the 1-1 draw with Clermont, the team that is knocking on a barrage for promotion. For Stade Lozai, Quevilly Rouen has no absences and we are sure they will try to get as many points. Currently ranked 19th at 3 points by Nancy, the first team to be above the red line. Because Tours seems to be downgraded, Quevilloy and Bourg along with Nancy still struggle with each other to get to a “safe” spot or at least to get to the dam.

On the other side, Lens was just a little higher. With 5 points more than their Saturday opponent, Lens is in 16th position in Ligue 2. However, it is important to note that they have reached the final of the Coupe de France and that having view the opponent they will have, we can say they are favorites to join the semifinals. However, of course, Ligue 2 is their priority, because they certainly know they have virtually no chance at the trophy. In the last stage Lens managed to get only one point on his own field with Valenciennes. However, the team’s game was quite good. After receiving a goal in the last minute of the first half in the second, they had 4 big goals in the first half. In the end they managed to score only once but surely could get out of that match. In the tour, on his own ground, Lens set himself in front of Quevilly Rouen with a score of 2-0 after a match in which they defended in the first half in the second one to have 3 occasions. The typical style of this team is the one in Ligue 2, a closed football game, based on a game of play that cuts the phases very often from the middle of the field.

PREDICTION: Under 2.5 goals @ 1.74
