Match Preview

  • Strasbourg’s 1-0 loss in their previous Ligue 1 (L1) outing ended their four-game unbeaten streak, and edged them closer to the division’s bottom five. Ensuring they don’t concede first could help them avoid consecutive losses for the first time this calendar year, as Strasbourg have lost all but two of the 15 fixtures in which they’ve conceded the opener this L1 season (W1, D1).
  • On an encouraging mini-run of two clean sheets at home (W1, D1), Strasbourg will now aim for a third consecutive top-flight shutout for the first time since December 2007! However ultimately this game could be decided late on, as five of the six match goals across Strasbourg’s previous four L1 home matches were scored in or after the 70th minute.
  • A fantastic unbeaten run of eight L1 games (W3, D5) has taken Lens agonisingly close to the coveted UEFA Europa Conference League spot, and a ninth match without defeat would mark their longest such streak since December 2006! Scoring first has certainly aided them so far, as they’ve lost just one of 16 league games when netting the opener (W11, D4, L1).
  • Impressively, the visitors have claimed 55.56% of their points on the road (W7, D4, L4), and if they avoid defeat in this one, it would be the first time since January 2006 that any Lens side has registered seven consecutive top-flight away games unbeaten. As ever, starting well will be a priority, as Lens remain unbeaten when leading at HT away this campaign (W6, D1).
  • Players to watch: Strasbourg’s Habib Diallo has netted all but one of his seven L1 goals between the 15th minute and HT, including one in the reverse H2H. Lens’ danger man could be Arnaud Kalimuendo who’s scored four of his six top-flight goals so far on the road.
  • Hot stat: No L1 side has scored more goals from the spot this season than Strasbourg (nine).
