- Lens have averaged two goals per game across their five home matches this term, with the same applying to Angers across their five away assignments.
- Both teams have registered in six of Angers’ last eight Ligue 1 fixtures including their last four on the road.
- Both teams have also struck in three of Lens’ last four at home including a 4-4 thriller against Reims earlier this month.
Both Teams to Have a Say in Lens
Both of these sides have been involved in plenty of high scoring fixtures so far this term and we expect another open encounter at Stade Bolleart-Delelis this Sunday.
Newly promoted Lens have made a superb start to life back in the top flight and sit eighth going into this weekend’s game after just one defeat from their last nine (W5, D3).
Franck Haise’s side have been strong at home with 11 points amassed from five outings, although their last two have finished all square against 17th placed Reims (4-4) and 14th placed Nantes (1-1).
While Angers have been conversely erratic (W5, D1, L5) the opening weeks, the visitors have won their last two on the road against Rennes (1-2) and Nimes (1-5) so it may pay to swerve the match betting for this Matchday 12 encounter.
Instead, both teams to score looks a good play as Lens have averaged two goals per game at Stade Bolleart-Delelis so far this term, while Angers are striking at the same rate on their travels.
Both teams have netted in Angers’ last four away fixtures and in three of Lens’ last four at home, so backing these sides to each have a say on Sunday makes sense and we’re also predicting a 2-2 score-line for what should be an highly entertaining clash.
