- Lens have won two of their last three Ligue 1 games including a 0-1 victory over Marseille just a fortnight ago.
- Marseille are without a win in four and have lost their last four Ligue 1 matches on the spin.
- Les Olympiens are also without a win in four on the road, losing three.
Lens to Clinch Memorable League Double
Lens pinched a 0-1 victory over Marseille at Stade Velodrome just two weeks ago and Franck Haise’s side are a decent price to back up that success when they host Les Olympiens at Stade Bolleart-Delelis this Wednesday.
Simon Banza’s second half strike earned Lens the points in that contest and last season’s Ligue 2 runners-up should be confident that they can repeat the trick once again here after beating Montpellier 1-2 at the weekend.
Lens’ home form is undeniably a concern as they have lost four of their last five at Stade Bolleart-Delelis, but they will be driven to complete a memorable league double over a Marseille side who are really struggling.
Les Olympiens teased a potential title challenge after winning six matches on the bounce through November and December, however the wheels have really come off for Andre Villas-Boas’ charges since.
Marseille have won just one of their last eight, losing five, and have lost their last three Ligue 1 starts on the spin. The visitors have also picked up just a solitary point from their last four away trips, so Lens are the logical bet here at around 11/8.
The reverse fixture a fortnight ago was a tight affair and there’s every reason to expect a similar pattern this Wednesday, so we’re also tipping up Lens to record another 1-0 score-line which will heap further pressure onto the Marseille manager’s shoulders.
