Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Lens will be looking to extend their winning run in Ligue 1 to three games when they host Bordeaux at their Stade Bollaert-Delelis. The newcomers have been playing above expectations on their return to the elite division, with the team beating title holders PSG in their first home fixture. Lens proved their worth in a 3-2 win at Lorient as well, and, no doubt, they are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Bordeaux.
Les Girondins, on the other hand, survived Olympique Lyon in their last league match (0-0), with les Gones totally dominating the match. Bordeaux are not regarded as good travellers, and given Lens’ form at the start of the season, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Yellow and Reds. Bordeaux defeated Lens in each of their last three meetings in the French top flight, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
