Lens and Lorient go into the final three Ligue 1 rounds with different ambitions. While Lens are fighting for a spot in the European competitions, Lorient are three points behind safety, so they urgently need wins. The upcoming tie is important for both sides, so it should be an interesting encounter. 

If Lens hadn't had a terrible last 12 matches in which they secured only three wins in all competitions, their season would be completely different. Maybe they would even sneak into the top four and the Champions League. Last weekend, Lens continued their poor form with a 2-1 loss on the road in Marseille. 

Lorient have a tough schedule as they go to Marseille after the game in Lens in the next Ligue 1 round, so chances for Lorient to avoid relegation are worrying. Last weekend, Lorient lost 2-1 at home against Toulouse. That was an ideal game for Lorient to take points, especially as they had led from the 19th minute, but Regis Le Bris' team conceded two goals in the second half and stayed empty-handed again. 

Lens vs Lorient pick: Both teams to score - yes

Lorient are far from a good attacking team, but they need to push for the win. Lens' defense has not been so impressive lately. On the other hand, Lens scored at least one goal in each of the previous 11 games. Both teams to score - yes should be the best option for this clash.

Lens team news

After another bad season, Lens' head coach, Franck Haise, said that this season was terribly difficult. Still, he added that Haise said, "Last season, we flew. This season, we have flown but we have also slipped up. When we flew, we were together; when we slipped up, we did so together too […] I hope that we'll have a happy ending to a season that will have been so terribly difficult. If we had a happy ending, it would have been what we deserved, and the players would have put in maximum effort to achieve that end."

Salis Abdul Samed and Jimmy Cabot are injured and will not play in the upcoming game against Lorient.

Lorient team news

Victory slipped off Lorient's hands in the game against Toulouse, and the head coach, Regis Le Bris, was very disappointed. He said, "There is a lot of disappointment because the team, in a necessarily difficult period in terms of dynamics and confidence, played well in this first hour of play. They achieved what they wanted to produce in terms of football, by creating chances, scoring a goal, and having the opportunity to break several times. Then, as is unfortunately often the case in this type of situation, the small incidents of play which are usually compensated are not."

Ayman Kari, Bamba Dieng, Bonke Innocent, Igor Silva, and Quentin Boisgard are unavailable for Friday's game against Lens.
