Lens vs Paris FC
Lens - Paris FC
Lens played Monday night on a difficult pitch, at in form Niort but with a lot of hard work they took a new away win 2-1, their third this season. They were simply better team and despite a good game made by Niort they prevailed in the end. And with 1 game in hand they are 3 points behind the leader Metz and can level them with a win in postponed game from Beziers which will take place 4 days after this game. With some addition in the squad and letting go some good players but less used ones, Montanier made a tough team which will fight for direct promotion. His experience was the key of taken results so far. Haidara is suspended. Teka is injured but striker Kyei is back in squad after an injury.
Also, Paris FC is proving to be till now a top-level team. A team who lost a single game so far (0-4 at Orleans when had some important missing), a team who is playing a nice football and capable to beat anybody. In last round they beat the leader Metz 2-1 on their own pitch, even they played in 10 men for about an hour. They administrate first defeat to Metz this season after a good game, scoring twice in front of a good defense, once when play in 10 men. So is expecting to see same tough Paris FC as in previous season, which is ok in terms of promotion battle. Lopez was suspended 3 rounds or his red card saw versus Metz, so will miss this trip.
Paris FC when travelling is happy with a draw. Keeping in mind their defensive force I think they are able to snatch a 1-1. Back the draw. gl
