Lens will hope to keep up their title charge this weekend when they meet with Ajaccio at home as they sit behind Paris Saint-Germain by six points in the table with only six left to play for.
In reality, it does mean Lens are all but out of the title race and that the Ligue 1 trophy will stay in Paris. The six-point gap is also coupled with an inferior goals difference of 16 goals, meaning Lens have to hope PSG lose both their games, they win their own and that they overturn a dramatic goals deficit at the same time. In truth, it would be nothing short of a miracle if Lens were to win the title from here and their main aims should be in finishing second this season.
A second place spot can also be confirmed for Lens in this game with the club now five clear of Marseille in third with just six left to play for. Lens do have a gap of five goals on Marseille in third as well which could also they end up securing a spot in second even with a loss.
As for Ajaccio, they've been relegated for some time in the top flight of French football and now come into this game with just 23 points secured in Ligue 1. It has seen them let in 71 goals and win only six times. Worse yet, they've lost their past two games 5-0 each and now come into this match sitting in their worst form of the season and relegated for three weeks now.
