THE PREDICTION

Lille have enjoyed a superb start to the 2020-21 campaign as they remain unbeaten after six games and will go top once more if they pull off another victory here. Boss Christophe Galtier will be hoping their momentum can continue in this first match after the international break but he will know his side are in for a tough test against Lens, who have been one of the form teams in Ligue 1 recently. The visitors – who have won four of their last five games – would also go top with a win so there is plenty on the line here. Both sides may very well be content with a point apiece, and it could be a low-scoring one too as Lille have conceded just two goals all season. Backing against both teams scoring could be worth looking at in the betting markets here, in what is likely to be a match with few chances.
