Lens - Marseille predictions and free betting tips [12/11/2023]
Good day, my dear readers and colleagues! I'd like to talk about the 12th round of the French Ligue 1. Tonight on the football field of "Roazhon Park", "Lens" will be hosting "Marseille". Let's see what we can expect from these teams and make a bet that will help boost our bank. Let's delve in!
"Lens": Samba; Gradit, Danso, Medina; Frankowski, Abdul Samed, Mendy, Machado; Sotoca, Wahi, Thomasson.
"Marseille": Pau Lopez; Clauss, Gigot, Mbemba, Renan Lodi; Veretout, Kondogbia; Sarr, Ndiaye, Harit; Vitinha.
"Lens" had a tough start to the season, but they have since got their act together and improved. The lads are currently sitting at 10th in the league table with 13 points. They have won 3 matches out of 11, lost 4 and drawn the same number. Over these matches, the team has bagged 12 goals and conceded 13. The team hadn't lost in 9 consecutive matches, but had a wake-up call on the 8th of November in the Champions League, falling to PSV and conceding the only goal of the match.
"Marseille" has been playing quite well lately. They currently hold the 9th position in the league table, bagging 13 points. This season they have scored 12 goals and conceded equally. In the Europa League, they have secured a victory over "AEK" twice, with scores (3:1) and (0:2). The last time they won in the French Championship was on October 8th when they scored three unanswered goals against "Le Havre". In their most recent Ligue 1 match, they drew with "Lille", with neither team managing to score. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be absent for "Marseille" as he missed the trip to Greece due to a hamstring injury.
Head to Head
In the last 5 outings of these teams, "Lens" has emerged as the victor three times. "Marseille" came out as victors only once. In their most recent face-off, which took place on 6 May this year, "Lens" defeated the opposition by a slim margin.
So, let's draw some conclusions from our analysis. Neither team is likely to shake things up after their Champions League and Europa League outings. However, to my mind, "Marseille" looks worse off, given this is their second away game in succession and they could find it challenging. "Lens" is in good shape and comfortable at home. I suggest we wager on a successful outcome for the hosts and place a bet on their triumph. It also could be worthy to bet on the total goals exceeding 2.5.
