The RC Lens team will challenge the Lille OSC team in a French Ligue 1 Matchday 8 in Stade Bollaert-Delelis Stadium, Lens on Sunday, October 08, 2023. For streaming coverage of Lens vs Lille LOSC, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Lens will host arch rivals Lille at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis on Sunday in the continuation of Ligue 1. This match will be the 118th edition of the Derby du Nord, one of the fiercest derbies in France.
Lens have been in good form recently, picking up three consecutive wins in all competitions. They managed to surprise Arsenal 2-1 in the UEFA Champions League after previously beating Strasbourg 1-0 in the domestic league. Goals from Elye Wahi and Adrien Thomasson were the key to their victory.
Lille also returned to winning ways after two games without a win in Ligue 1. They beat Le Havre 2-0 away from home with goals from Edon Zhegrova and an own goal from Yoann Salmier. However, they failed to achieve a complete victory in the Europa Conference League after being held to a goalless draw by KI.
For this match, Lens have the home advantage in this match, as they have suffered just one defeat against Lille in their last 11 league meetings at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis. They also have quite sharp attacking power, having scored five goals in their last three matches.
Lille, on the other hand, have a less impressive away record, with just one win in their last nine away games in Ligue 1. They have also struggled for goals, with just two goals scored in their last four games.
Lens will be without the services of defender Jonathan Gradit, who is suspended due to an accumulation of yellow cards. It is also doubtful that they will field Massadio Haïdara and David Pereira Da Costa, who were injured against Arsenal. Meanwhile, Lille also has several injured players, such as Samuel Umtiti, Adam Ounas and Nabil Bentaleb. They will most likely not feature in this match.
Judging from various aspects, Lens is likely to achieve a narrow victory over Lille, who are struggling to find their best form.
