Lens vs Charleroi by Serialtips
Well this is the first time I propose a football bet here, simple explanation is that I am not profitable when I bet on football even I do believe to have good konwledge...But I will just make one exception here for this match because I think that it deserves some stakes.
Lens had a difficult off-season, the club wasn't officially promoted in french Ligue 1. To resume very briefly, it is because the DNCG (french football authorities) wanted proofs of the money of azeri owner or Lens, Hafiz Mammadov, and then see if the announced budget of Lens is real. There weren't real proofs according to DNCG so the DNCG chose to cancel the promotion of Lens. All this mess lasts during the whole month of June and July, but after long negociations with other french football authorities, Lens is finally and officially in french Ligue 1 since Monday.
Unfortunately, because of this mess, the club couldn't recruit any player, and moreover their headcoach Antoine Kombouaré chose to stay at home and wait the official promotion so as to comeback. Of course, it's not the best way to prepare well an off-season, and without surprise the team has been awful during all his friendlies, losing every single one.
But now that the headcoach finally came back, and especially now that the players know that they will play in Ligue 1, I expect an high boost of serious and motivation. We can already see that on the official website, everybody is happy, full of concentration at training etc...
So now Lens will play against the belgian team Charleroi in St-Quentin, and there is no absence in the group.
The interested thing is that Jupiler League (belgian 1st league) began last week-end, Charleroi lost 3-0 in Liège against the Standard, and there is a new match of Jupiler League next week-end so this friendly against Lens is of course not a priority.
Without surprise, Charleroi's headcoach rested a lot of players, he simply rested 10 of the 11 starters against Standard, so this is the team B who will play this friendly.
Knowing that best players of team A are players who played in French Ligue 2 in the past, I would say that team A has approximately same level than Lens, so without them I give a clear advantage to Lens.
So I think that Lens can win this friendly on these conditions. Odds dropped a lot, too bad I didn't see this match early.
