Two teams that are coming off opposite results will lock horns on Saturday, when Lens will host Strasbourg. Lens are coming off a tough loss against Lyon, but fought hard about it. Strasbourg are coming off a massive win against Nimes and have not been in bad form lately.
Lens (8-6-3) were not that bad against Lyon but found themselves down by 0-3 thanks to a penalty kick and an own goal. They did score twice but it wasn’t enough to escape the 2-3 loss. They have been alternating from win to loss to draw, not producing the same result in two consecutive matches since late September. Lens are sitting at the 8th spot of the Ligue 1 with 27 points, scoring 28 and conceding 27 goals so far. They have a 4-2-2 record at home but have won just one of their last five there (1-2-2).
Strasbourg (5-11-2) were excellent in their home match against Nimes (the worst team in the league) destroying them by a massive 0-5. Prior to that they had back to back losses against PSG and Bordeaux, but those were their only losses in their last seven matches (3-2-2). Strasbourg are sitting at the 16th spot of the Ligue 1 with 17 points, just four above the red line. They have scored 27 and have conceded 32 goals so far. They have been hit or miss on the road (3-6-0), scoring 16 and conceding 18 goals.
