Lens vs Strasbourg 07.04.2023
RC Lens have been the surprise package in the French top division this season. A run of 7 undefeated matches in the league including 3 straight wins in their last 3 matches has seen them rise up to 2nd on the log, tied with Marseille on 60 points, just 6 shy of league leaders and defending champions PSG. They will certainly be looking to move clear of Marseille with a win which will also see them edge closer to PSG who have been uncharacteristically shaky this season.
Strasbourg have struggled to gain any rhythm this season and they find themselves perilously close to the drop zone. They are in 16th place, just 5 points away from the relegation territory. The Blues-and-Whites found themselves on the wrong end of a 7-goal thriller last time out as they lost 4-3 away at Monaco. They will be hoping for better fortunes here but given how well Lens have been playing, particularly at home, they could yet come out empty handed which could deepen their relegation woes.
That said, we do expect a handful of goals here. Whilst Lens are expected to pick up the win here, their defence will be tested by a Strasbourg side that has scored twice in each of their last three matches. We are therefore backing the game to have at least 3 goals.
