🗞️ Team News: RC Lens

Florian Sotoca (Calf Injury), Adam Oudjani (Surgery), Seko Fofana (Corona virus), Tony Mauricio (Corona virus), Loïc Badé (Corona virus), Ignatius Ganago (Corona virus) and Facundo Medina (Corona virus) won’t be able to feature for Lens boss Franck Haise.

📋 Team News: FC Lorient

Owing to an otherwise available group of players, there is only the one fitness problem for the FC Lorient boss Christophe Pélissier to contend with. Quentin Boisgard (Muscle Injury) won’t be in action.

💭 Prediction

We’re inclined to think that FC Lorient could find themselves up against it to score goals against this RC Lens outfit who should be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.

We therefore think that it’s going to be a very competitive game with a 1-0 win for RC Lens at the end of the 90.

Our expert partners are tipping over 1.5 goals for this match. Check out their VIP predictions here.
