Lens vs Marseille Preview:

It’s the battle for the second spot in Ligue 1 as Lens welcome Marseille at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis in a Saturday late-night kickoff. The hosts enter this game on a series of good wins, with the latest coming against a free-scoring Toulouse. Lens have now won six of their last seven games in the league, scoring 15 in the process and keeping 5 clean sheets. The only loss in this period came at the hands of the table toppers PSG, who are now just six points better off Lens at the top of the table with five games to go. All eyes will be on the red-hot Ikoma Lois Openda, who scored his eighteenth goal of the campaign against Toulouse – and now has nine goals in his last seven starts. Frank Haise’s side have the best record at home this season, having collected 43 points from 16 matches, the most in the division. However, Marseille themselves have been the best travelling team in the country this campaign, which could line us up for an interesting matchup at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis.

Marseille on the other hand have themselves been on a rich vein of form, having not lost any of their last nine matches. Their last defeat came in February, coincidently again, at the hands of PSG. With three consecutive victories now and sitting second with 70 points, 5 points behind league leaders PSG, some unexpected results could see this three-way title race going down the wire with six games to go. The visitors Marseille are unbeaten in their last 10 away trips, with 9 wins and 1 draw – having the best away record in the division with 39 points in 16 matches. They have also conceded only 11 goals during this time. Despite losing the reverse fixture in October last year, Igar Tudor’s men will be hopeful of a win that puts them 4 points clear of Lens and 2 points within the reach of PSG.
