  • Venue: Stade Bollaert-Delelis

Freiburg will be looking to maintain their 100% record against French sides when they face Lens away on Thursday in the first leg of their Europa League playoff tie.

The hosts started the season in the Champions League and can count themselves unlucky to be out of the competition, having beaten Arsenal and Sevilla in their group. Les Sang et go into Thursday's game on the back of a comfortable 3-1 win over Strasbourg, which ended the team's winning streak in all competitions at three games.

Freiburg, meanwhile, finished second in Europa League Group A with 12 points from six games. The German outfit have not been in good form recently, losing all of their last three games (conceding nine goals and scoring just two). However, Breisgau-Brasilianer can take heart from the fact that they won their last two matches against French teams, beating Nantes 6-0 on aggregate last season.

Lens vs Freiburg Betting Tips: Over 2.5 goals

Lens' defense has proved less than solid in recent weeks, especially at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis. The French outfit enter this game on a run of six consecutive games without a clean sheet, and only two of those outings have seen fewer than 2.5 goals scored. Their last two games in Europe also ended with at least three goals.

Apropos weaknesses in defense, Freiburg cannot be left out, with Christian Streich's side conceding at least two goals in six of their last seven games. Breisgau-Brasilianer managed to scored average a goal per game in that spell and just one of those games ended with under 2.5 goals.

  • Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals
  • Lens vs Freiburg prediction: 2-1

RC Lens

Lens team news

With no new injuries to report in the 2-0 win over Toulouse, Lens coach Franck Haise will resist the temptation to reshuffle his squad.

Facundo Medina will be available again this week after missing that game through suspension, but Jimmy Cabot is unlikely to be ready for action any time soon due to a cruciate ligament injury.
