Lens have produced an excellent run of form and have second spot almost sewn up. They were 1-3 winners on the road last week as they got the better of Lorient as they fought back from going a goal down to seal the win. Romain Faivre gave Lorient the lead but efforts from Florian Sotoca, Adrien Thomasson and Seko Fofana handed the away side an important victory.
They have now won their last five matches and will be full of confidence ahead of this clash with Ajaccio, knowing another three points would secure their spot in the group stage proper of next season’s UEFA Champions League.
Not only have they won five games in succession but they have also managed to win nine of their last 10. On home soil, they are unbeaten in their last seven and they will prove to be very difficult opponents in this encounter.
Ajaccio appear to have given up with their relegation confirmed as they suffered yet another humiliating loss last week. They shipped five goals for the second game in succession with Rennes hammering them 0-5.
That was also the same scoreline that they were defeated by PSG and things could be about to get worse for them here after goals from Baptiste Santamaria, Jeremy Doku and a Amine Gouiri hat-trick condemned them to the heavy loss.
It is now no win in 11 matches for Ajaccio with nine of those games ending in defeat for them. They have lost three of their last four while they have lost seven consecutive matches away from home.
This is a huge mismatch and it is likely to tell as Lens host Ajaccio. Lens are fighting for a place in next season’s UEFA Champions League and can achieve that feat with a win here. Meanwhile, Ajaccio will be playing in Ligue 2 next season after a wretched campaign. They have conceded 10 goals without reply in their last two games and having lost their last seven away from home, all signs point to a comfortable home win for Lens.
TIP: LENS -1
