Despite the addition of experience in the away team, Lyon are having difficulties this season. A bad game against Lance could be a disaster for Bos and the hosts have a good chance of winning right now.
Lyon have been fickle lately, while Lens have made a quiet impression.
Prediction for this match: both teams to score without a draw.
- Lance won’t lose.
