- Under 2.5 goals have been produced in the last three meetings between these two clubs
- Under 2.5 goals have been produced in four of Nantes’ last six league games
- Four of Nantes’ last six matches in Ligue 1 have ended in stalemates
Lens’ Struggles on the Road to Continue Against One of the League’s Draw Specialists
Nantes claimed a 1-1 draw away at mid-table side Montpellier last time out but remain just outside the relegation zone in Ligue 1. Lens disappointingly lost 1-0 in their own backyard to a Strasbourg side that only sat 3pts above the dropzone before kick-off, so they will be looking for a response on Sunday.
When these two sides met back in November for their reverse league fixture the game ended in a stalemate, with both sides finding the back of the net on one occasion. The last three meetings between the two clubs have all produced under 2.5 goals, which suggests that we could be in for another tight and tense 90-minutes this weekend.
Nantes have become one of the draw specialists this season, with the relegation battlers drawing eight times already this season. Four of Nantes’ last six matches have ended in stalemates and with Lens failing to win their last two away games, we could be set for another draw on Sunday. We’re not expecting too many goals in this game as four of Nantes’ last six outings in Ligue 1 have produced under 2.5 goals and each of those games ended in draws.
We’re predicting that under 2.5 goals will be scored in Sunday’s clash and we have backed the game to end in a 1-1 draw. With recent encounters between the two clubs being low-scoring and Nantes being one of the league’s draw specialists, we can see Lens extending their winless run on the road to three matches.
