France – Ligue 2: Istres vs Lens Betting Preview

Both teams are in bad form and both need points in this match. france-ligue-2-logo

Istres without few not-too-much-important players: Sainati (11/0 d), Mas (14/0 m), Ba (15/0 m) and Allart (10/1 f).

Lens will be without 5 very important players. Yahia (22/1 d), Valdivia (25/2 m – suspended), Cyprien (23/1 m), Ljuboja (30/8 f – 5 assists) and top scorer Touzghar (28/12 f) are all out. They all together almost 1/2 Lens goals this season (24 of 50).

Lens won only once on their last 8 matches in all competitions (1-5-2). Fans are angry and the team is under pressure which could be a sword with two edges.

Istres have already “surprised” Lens in the first half of the season when they beat them 1-2 away.

They are playing very solid at home (5-3-2) and I believe they could stay undefeated today.
