THE KEY STATS
- Lens have lost only one of their last 19 UEFA club competition matches at home (W15 D3).
- Lens have won four of their previous six UEFA club competition matches at home against German teams (D1 L1).
- Lens have not failed to score in their last 36 UEFA club competition matches at home. Since a 1-0 defeat against Lazio in the UEFA Cup first round in September 1996.
- Freiburg’s only previous UEFA club competition match in France was a 4-0 away win against Nantes in the 2022/23 Europa League group stage.
- Freiburg have won four of their previous six UEFA Europa League matches this season (L2).
These are two teams that have recently overachieved in Europe's big five major leagues. Lens began the season really slowly but last season's Ligue 1 runners' up have been much improved and come into this one on the back of comfortably defeating Strasbourg by three goals to one on Saturday. They now face a Freiburg side that have been coached by Christian Streich since 2011 and have continued to defy expectation, challenging in the upper echelons of the Bundesliga. They do though come into this one on the back of a 3-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund, meaning they have managed just one win in their last five matches and have suffered three successive losses. As a result, as well as their home advantage, backing Lens is the way to go here.
TIP: LENS TO WIN
