Lens

Preview
Saint-Étienne plays against Lens at Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium for the 24th fixture of Ligue 1.

Despite their good season overall, Saint-Étienne is on a bad sequence of results. In the last 5 matches, they only managed to win one time. At the moment, the team commanded by Christophe Galtier is fourth at the league with 40 points.
              
But the other team, managed by Antoine Kombouare, isn't better. They are without a win for six consecutive matches. Their last two matches ended tied, one of them at home against Bastia. This team is on the relegation zone with just 21 points.  
              
On their head-to-head there aren't great disparities. On the last 5 matches, each team won twice.
              

Analysis of Saint-Étienne

The best defensive players of the home team are Florentin Pogba and Moustapha Sall but both are unavailable for this match due to injuries, so their defense will be clearly weakened, 

At the middle of the pitch, Jérémy Clément is responsible for the organization and definition of the teams pace and style. The french veteran is a great passer and excellent feeding the offensive football of the team. 
              
Wolfswinkel is the striker of Saint-Étienne. The dutch forward can play quickly and efficiently to find holes at the defenses and score some goals.
              


Confirmed Lineup: S. Ruffier, P. Baysse, K. Théophile-Catherine, L. Perrin, F. Tabanou, F. Lemoine, R. Hamouma, J. Clément, L. N'Guémo, R. van Wolfswinkel, Y. Mollo.
Coach: C. Galtier.

Analysis of Lens

Normally, Lens prefers to play in 4-4-2 formation with Coulibaly and Chavarría at the front. Coulibaly is the best scorer of the team with just four goals.

This team usually misses a lot of opportunities before score a goal. This way, they'll probably prefer to defend and try to counter attack frequently.

The french veteran Valdivia is the key player that drives many of their attacking plays. The Lens midfielder has a great passing quality and attacks very often during a match.



Confirmed Lineup: R. Riou, D. Cavaré, A. Kantari, B. Boulenger, J. Gbamin, W. Cyprien, P. Valdivia, J. Le Moigne, L. Nomenjanahary, A. Coulibaly, B. Guillaume.
Coach: A. Kombouare.

Betting suggestion:

The most probable here is a Saint-Étienne win. They play at home and seem to have a pretty stronger team, so i imagine them to get all three points against a weak team like Lens.
