Lens Team News

Until the last round, Lens was one of the rare unbeaten teams in Ligue 1. The streak of nine games without defeat was ended in a duel with the Lille team, who celebrated 1:0 at their stadium.

Lens was also very close to qualifying for one of the European competitions last season. Still, in the end, due to their fluctuating form, they ended the season without achieving their desired goal.

This season, they have changed their approach a bit. They are playing these games with a lot more caution. This is perhaps best shown by the goal difference of 17:8, but as time goes by, it is clear that they will have to play more offensively because their direct competitors in the fight for Europe are offensively oriented teams.

They are on a streak of five games with a low number of goals, and they will certainly not have a better chance to end that streak than the duel with Montpellier.

Montpellier Team News

When a team does not draw in the first ten rounds, it clearly shows their style of play. Montpellier is the only Ligue 1 team without a draw so far, and they can also boast that they are the most efficient team in the championship.

They scored and conceded 21 goals each in the first ten rounds, so the average of 4.2 goals per match shows they do not have too much ambition this season. We say this because their offensive qualities nullify numerous defensive mistakes, and with such an approach, it is tough to expect a more concrete result.

They have no reason to stop with a more open style of play, but they could struggle this time because they are facing a duel with a team that does not like too fast a pace.

Lens vs. Montpellier Prediction

Lens wants to be more seriously involved in the fight for the Champions League, and there is no doubt that in this match, they will be motivated enough to get new points. In a duel between two teams with opposite game philosophies, we always prioritize the team with defensive qualities, and in this case, it is Lens.

Although Montpellier has shown enviable goalscoring qualities, we have to say that the average of over four goals per match is beyond their realistic attributes, so in our opinion, it is time to end that incredible streak.

Here we believe that the home team will manage to impose control and, with a patient and calm game, will get essential points.
