Nantes vs Lens Prediction & Match Preview
Nantes vs Lens
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 18 September 2022
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Beaujoire.
Lens have always been one of the best teams in the French top flight, and as expected they started this new season with a bang. Meanwhile, Nantes are yet to find form this new season in the Ligue 1, and each passing match-day, they are increasing pressure upon themselves.
As of now, they are placed 15th in a table of 20, and they managed a single win so far. They are also on a two-fixture losing streak in the league, and have a surplus of just one point over the relegation cut-off.
It also needs to be noted that their only victory so far in the competition came against the struggling Toulouse.
Meanwhile, Lens are placed third in the table at the moment, and are one of the few teams still to maintain an unbeaten record.
They also won four of their past five league fixtures, and let in just two goals all through their road fixtures this season in the Ligue 1.
Do also note that only PSG and Montpellier scored more goals than them in the entire competition.
Furthermore, they secured a seventh-place finish the last time around in the league, and they missed out on a European ticket by just four points. They seem determined to not let that happen again.
By the looks of things, expect a victory for Lens this Sunday at the Stade de la Beaujoire.
Nantes are on a two-game losing streak, and they were winless in nine of their past eleven fixtures. Do note that they let in three or more goals in three of their past four overall matches, and they managed to win just thrice at this venue in the last four months.
On the other hand, Lens are on a 21-fixture unbeaten run, and in the process they went on a four-fixture winning streak, as well as two separate three-game winning stretches.
Judging these observations, expect a win for Lens this weekend.
