Lens look to get their season back in order with a big win over top-of-the-league PSG. The hosts have had to juggle the addition of European football, but with their future in the Europa League secure, they can focus on re-qualifying through the league. A win for Lens would also pull PSG close to the rest of the pack and truly ignite the title race.

Lens currently sit seventh in Ligue 1 after 17 games. The Blood and Gold have seven wins, five draws and five losses, leaving them on 26 points, two points from the Europa League Group Stage and five points from the Champions League Qualifiers.

Despite being seventh, Lens have been good at both ends of the pitch. In 17 games, Lens have scored 21 goals with an average of 1.24 goals per game, though their top scorer, Wesley Said has the third-lowest number of goals so far this season. Defensively, Lens are even better, ranked fifth in the league for goals conceded, having only conceded 17 goals this season and having eight clean sheets, the third most in Ligue 1.

PSG, on the other hand, sit top of Ligue 1. In 17 games, PSG have 12 wins, four draws and just one loss which leaves them on 40 points, already five points ahead of Nice and seven points ahead of Monaco.

The PSG attack have run riot so far this season, bagging 42 goals in 17 games, with Kylian Mbappe already having 18 goals in the league. However, the other end of the pitch is somewhat lacking in comparison. PSG ranks third for goals conceded, having conceded 14 goals in 17 games and keeping seven clean sheets.

Lens and PSG have met on 33 occasions with PSG having a slightly better record in the fixture. The Parisians have 13 wins in comparison to Lens’ nine wins, with the other 11 games ending in a share of the points.

In the last eight games between the two teams, there has only been one meeting in which both teams have not scored, that being the 1 - 0 win for Lens back in 2020. In fact, the average number of goals in this fixture is 2.82 goals per match.

Form Guide

In their last five games in all competitions, Lens have two wins, one draw and two losses.

The trip to Motepellier was a fruitless one as both teams failed to find the back of the net. It was for the lack of trying as Lens had 13 shots with five shots on target, but it wasn’t enough as Lens had to settle for a 0 - 0 draw and a single point.

In the last week of the Champions League Group Stage, Lens hosted Sevilla. A penalty from Przemyslaw Frankowski in the 63rd minute gave Lens the lead but a penalty from Sergio Ramos just before the 80-minute mark levelled the game. Angelo Fulgini popped up with a goal in the 96th minute to grab the 2 - 1 win for Lens.

Back in Ligue 1, Lens took on Reims. Said grabbed a goal just before halftime and Cortes doubled their lead in the second half. Despite Reims having more shots, with more on target, Lens held on for the 2 - 0 win.

Next time out there was another 2 - 0 scoreline, but this time it was not in Lens’ favour. Terem Moffi grabbed a two-minute brace in the second half to give Nice the 2 - 0 win, despite Lens having 60% of the possession and ten shots.

The last time out for Lens was in the Round of 64 of the French Cup against Monaco. Wissam Ben Yedder opened the scoring in the first minute and Maghnes Akliouche doubled Monaco’s lead. Faitout Maouassa did get Lens on the scoresheet before halftime and Florian Sotoca levelled the game in the second half. The game finished 2 - 2 and was sent to penalties, however, Adrien Thomasson, Facundo Medina, Fulgini and Said all missed to give Monaco the 6 - 5 win.

In their last five games in all competitions, PSG have three wins and two draws.

In the last week of the Champions League Group Stage, PSG travelled to Germany to take on Borussia Dortmund. Karim Adeyemi opened the scoring for Dortmund in the 51st minute but Warren Zaire-Emery equalised for PSG just five minutes later. Neither side could find another goal and had to settle for a 1 - 1 draw.

It was another 1 - 1 draw for PSG back in Ligue 1. A penalty from Mbappe in the 66th minute gave PSG the lead, but in the 94th minute Jonathan David scored to grab a 1 - 1 draw for Lille.

Matthieu Udol did manage to get on the scoresheet for Metz, but a goal from Vitinha and a brace from Mbappe gave PSG the 3 - 1 win.

In the Final of the Trophee des Champions, PSG took on Toulouse. An early goal from Kang-in and then yet another goal from Mbappe gave PSG the 2 - 0 win and their first trophy of the season.

The most recent outing for PSG was against Revel in the Round of 64 of the French Cup. A hat-trick for Mbappe, a brace from Randal Kolo Muani and an own goal from Maxence N’Guessan along with goals from Marco Asensio, Goncalo Ramos and Cher Ndour gave PSG the 9 - 0 win.
