Matches featuring RC Lens have usually been engaging ones of late with plenty of scoring expected. Over their past half dozen games, the sum of 22 goals have been recorded for both sides combined (at an average of 3.67 goals per game) with 15 of those coming from RC Lens.

A look at their previous results shows us that RC Lens:

  • haven’t lost in the league to ESTAC in their last 3 games.
  • have not been beaten in their last 8 league matches at home. A very good run at home.

Previously, ESTAC drew 1-1 in the Ligue 1 tie with Rennes.

In that match, ESTAC managed 29% possession and 9 attempts at goal with 1 on target. The only player to score for ESTAC was Ike Ugbo (14′).

Rennes got 19 attempts on goal with 6 on target. Baptiste Santamaria (48′) scored for Rennes.

In as many as 5 out of the previous 6 games involving ESTAC, three or more goals have been hit. The overall average number of goals per match within that time is 4.17, with the average number of goals for ESTAC equalling 1.83.

It will be interesting to find out if that trend can be continued on in this game.

Ahead of this meeting, ESTAC have left without a victory over RC Lens when they’ve played them away from home in the last 12 league games. It has been a terrible run on the road.
