Marseille vs Lens

, KO: 19:45 Sep 26, 2021, Orange Velodrome

Marseille will put their unbeaten record on the line as they welcome Lens to the Orange Velodrome for a French Ligue 1 contest. Lens have also looked solid at the start of the season but face a Marseille side who have a good home record.

Marseille were held to a 0-0 draw at Angers in their previous Ligue 1 fixture. They were not at their best and despite dominating the possession, were surprisingly poor in attack, finishing with just one attempt on target.

While manager Jorge Sampaoli will be disappointed with Marseille’s performance at Angers, he will be pleased that his team are still unbeaten after six matches. They are keeping up the chase on PSG and have claimed four victories this season.

Marseille have a good record at the Orange Velodrome and have won their last two home matches. However, they have kept just one clean sheet in their last six home matches, stretching back to last season.

Lens are coming off a defeat as they were beaten 1-0 at home by Strasbourg last time out in Ligue 1. They saw more of the possession but were wasteful in attack, failing to convert any of their four attempts on target.

It was the first defeat of the campaign for Franck Haise’s men, who have made a solid start to the season. They are challenging near the top end of the table and will be keen to make a swift return to winning ways.

Lens have struggled to keep things tight at the back with just two clean sheets from seven matches this season. They have also conceded five goals in their last three matches.
