Lens broke the pomegranate in an imposing way, with its first victory of the season away to Monaco. They played simple, substantial, and compact and deservedly won the three points. This victory is a good signal for the season, but they must continue like this to catch a place in European competitions. Lorient got what they deserved in Montpellier with a 3:1 defeat. The coach, Pelissier is obviously disappointed after the match, and he is worried about the situation with injuries and suspensions for this match. Unavailable for this match are Mouyokolo, Morel, Hergault (suspended), Mendes (suspended), Diarra, Lecoeuche, and Faissal Ouattara. They will have a lot of problems stopping the offensive power of the home team and expect Lens to score at least two goals.
