Lens to win
Lens failed to taste victory in the previous three h2h meetings against Brest (W2 D1).
Meanwhile, Franck Haise’s side are in great home form as they won over half of their league matches last term at Bollaert-Delelis (W9, D4, L3).
Total goals over 2.5
As both side prefer a more attacking style of play, we think there will be many goal-scoring opportunities and the match could end with more than 2.5 total goals.
Preliminary review and match prediction for Lens vs Brest
Lens were close to European spots last season but again found themselves in 7th place after gaining promotion to Ligue 1 two years ago.
However, their summer transfer business so far have been impressive, signing six players for over £25 million.
It means Lens are determined to be at least in the league Top 6 and finally get European football next season.
On the other hand, Brest finished last season in 11th place, which is the second-best record in the Ligue 1 since celebrating an all-time high of 8th place in 1987.
Les Pirates will be looking to start the new campaign on a positive note, as they suffered a late slump of three straight defeats to end the 2021/22 season.
- Lens have scored at least 2 goals in their last 5 home fixtures
- The hosts are unbeaten in their previous 14 matches
- The guests have lost their last 3 league matches
