Lens is hosting Bordeaux at Stade Bollaert-Delelis in round 4 in the French Ligue 1.
Lens has lost their first game of the season on the road, but since then, Lens is on a 2-game winning streak in Ligue 1. During this stretch, Lens has scored 4 goals, while conceding 2 goals. With 6 points, Lens is in 8th place in the Ligue 1 standings. In their last match against Lorient on the road, Lens has had 54% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 80% of the correct passes. Lens was losing 1-0 in the 13th minute, but they were able to turn the result around in by the end of the half time. Lens has won this match 2-3. Lens has also conceded a red card in the 92nd minute of the game. Kakuta and Ganago have scored 2 goals each, while Medina added 1 more goal for Lens so far this season. Sotoca has added 2 assists for Lens. Boli and Traore are both injured, and they will not be in the lineup for this match. Lens is the newcomer to the Ligue 1, and they have started really well, and to be honest, I like Lens, and I think they will stay in Ligue 1 after this season as well.
Bordeaux is still undefeated in Ligue 1 with 2 draws and 1 win. Bordeaux also didn’t concede a goal in Ligue 1 yet, while they scored 2 goals so far. Bordeaux is in 10th place in the standings with 5 points. Basic and Maja have each scored 1 goal for Bordeaux so far this season. Koscielny has 1 assist for Bordeaux this season. Castro is injured, while Zerkane is suspended because of the red card. In their last Ligue 1 match against Lyon at home, Bordeaux has had 45% of ball possession, 0 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 78% of the correct passes. Both teams were defending well in this match, and the final result was 0-0. Bordeaux ended the last season in 12th place with 37 points, and they were playing well on both ends, and if the season wasn’t canceled earlier, I think Bordeaux would have climbed the standings to the Europa League spot because they were only 4 points away, and they were playing really good soccer. This season will be a bit tougher for Bordeaux because more teams are playing better soccer, starting with Monaco, Lille, and Saint-Etienne. Bordeaux is still struggling in the attacking end, and sooner they get that in order, the easier will be for Bordeaux.
Lens hasn’t won any of their last 3 games against Bordeaux, while Bordeaux hasn’t lost any of their last 7 games. The trends are mixed here, and Bordeaux is playing great defense at the beginning of the season. Taking everything into consideration, I think this match could end up in a draw, and I will take a stab at that.
