In this article, we will give you the best fantasy combinations, probable lineups, team news, key stats and grand league tips for the French Cup match between Lorient v Lens
Lorient v Lens
Stade du Moustoir- Yves Allainmat, Lorient, France
10th February, 01:30 a.m.
The French Cup action continues in France tonight, as Lorient are all set to host RC Lens.
If we talk about the Ligue 1 table, both teams are currently in the top half of the table, with RC Lens sitting third, level on points with Olympique Marseille, who defeated the French League table toppers yesterday. A Coupe de France win tonight will boost their confidence in their hunt for the French League title. They reached this stage of the competition for the second straight time. They lost 4-2 to Monaco last season and would be looking to turn things in their favour this time around.
The Merlucciidaes, on the other hand, are currently seventh in Ligue 1, but their last two results have gone against them. Nonetheless, the Brittany-based club would be looking to knock off RC Lens at home, having gained confidence after a 6-0 thrashing of amateur side Chataigneraie in their previous French Cup match.
