Lens Team News

The Lens team returned to the company of the best in 2020 and following two years they did an extraordinary job. In both seasons after returning to the strongest league in France, they finished as the seventh-placed team, just behind the places leading to Europe, and considering the team they have this season, it is expected that they make a breakthrough and finish among the top five teams in the league.

For the ongoing season, the Lens team have brought in several top reinforcements. Lois Openda, who had a great season behind him in Vitesse, arrived at Lens by adding four goals in 12 games, and as a result, he is of great importance to the team’s games this season. Midfielder Salis Abdul Samed arrived from Clermont and is now indispensable in the starting 11.

Brice Samba is the new starting goalkeeper. He arrived from Nottingham where he had a particularly good season and in these 12 games at Lens he proved to be a great reinforcement. In addition to them, they also brought in Claude Maurice, Onana, Poreba, Cabot and Adam Buksa, who happen to be occasional starters.

Lens have had a great start to the new season. They are currently the second-placed team in the league with 27 points won in 12 games. They have a great midfield, consequently, in most games they control that part of the field and the last line looks fantastic as well at the beginning of the new season. Presently, they are the second best defense in the league, right behind PSG with eight goals conceded.

In the last two rounds, they played two derbies, in which Montpeiller was defeated at home and Marseille at the Velodrome with 1-0 each. Succeeding such games, they will surely enter this match as favorites. Apart from that, they have no big concerns with absences prior to today’s match. They cannot count on Farinez and Gradito who are out continually while defender Facundo Medina serves his suspension.

Toulouse Team News

The Toulouse team spent an excellent season in Ligue 2, where they finished as the first-placed team with 79 points without any major difficulties, and thus returned to the company of the best. Of course, the biggest goal of the team this season is to stay in the company of the best.

Although they are a team that is expected to fight for survival, with an excellent transfer window, several excellent footballers have been brought and it is anticipated that they finish above the danger zone this season.

Toulouse have had a great start to the new season. After 12 games played, they have 16 points and are currently firmly in the middle of the table. They are now on a streak of four games without defeat, but the fact that they are still far from the best teams in France in terms of quality is best indicated by their 3-0 home defeat against PSG.

Neither the Toulouse team have any big problems with absences before this match. Rhys Healey and Restes have been injured since the beginning of the season, and the only obstacle could be Rasmus Nicolaisen serving the suspension, who happens to be a key player in the back line.

H2H

  • These teams last played in the 2014/15 season, when Lens won both matches.

Lens vs. Toulouse Prediction

Both Lens and Toulouse have a great onset to the new season. However, Lens is a team that is to fight for participation in the Champions League, while Toulouse’s main goal is to stay in the company of the best.

Apart from the obvious difference in terms of quality, today Toulouse is going to be without an extremely important player in the last line, Nicolaisen. Therefore, we expect Lens to dominate in front of its fans in most of the match and to achieve another victory.
