Lens vs Sochaux – Ligue 2: Three days later, Lens and Sochaux will play another Ligue 2 match.
I have already said here several times that Lens is one of the main contenders for promotion, not only due to the strong investment made on the team, but also due to the team’s quality.
After an unthinkable start by Lens, they have been recovering and right now they already have a comfortable advantage over the relegation spots, getting closer and closer to the promotion spots.
They still have 13 points between them and the promotion spots, but the league is still on its halfway, and there is still a lot of time to recover from that disadvantage.
Lens has a wide roster with a lot of solution, which gives them an advantage for these periods where the schedule is tighter.
For this match, Lens won’t be able to count with Cvetinovic, who was sent off on the last match, and with the injured Bellegarde, Douchez, Madri and Wojtkowiak.
Sochaux is a mid-table team, and right now they are looking to find stability in Ligue 2 and prepare to, in the future, fight to achieve promotion to Ligue 1, but for now they are just aiming for tranquillity.
On the last couple of seasons, the team has struggled a little bit, being on the bottom half of the league table for almost the entirety of the season.
This season is going better, and the team has been making a relaxed campaign, taking advantage of their matches at home but also of the encounters with teams that are fighting for the same objectives as them.
The team’s recent loss against the weak side of Quevilly was really an exception.
Sochaux doesn’t have any relevant absences and on this match, they will already have Mikael Alphonse and El-Hadji Ba available.
Lens vs Sochaux – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Lens is clearly in a good moment of form and they are clearly favoured to win this match and continue to shorten the distance onto the top of the league table.
The home team is one of the promotion contenders, the investment was huge and so are the demands for this team, which means they can’t ease up at home.
