            Lens vs Ajaccio Prediction, Tips & Stats

            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.

            Lens team news

            Lens saw Kevin Danso sent off two weeks back in their loss to Reims, but he can return to action here. Lens will also see their league title charge collapse if they fail to win this game, we expect to see their best team lineup here. Frankowski scored recently once more and he should line up with Abdul Samed, Fofan and Machado in the Lens midfield. Florian Sotoca and Thomasson are the two main names in the attacking midfield spots, and they should remain here. Lois Openda will be in search of another goal in this game when he plays.

            Ajaccio team news

            Ajaccio's stunning 5-0 home defeat to Rennes also saw Mickael Alphonse get a straight red card and he will now miss the last two games for the club. Thomas Mangani was also sent off in the 5-0 away loss to PSG the other week and it now means three cards in the past six games for Ajaccio.

            What's more, they've not let in 10 goals in the past two games and it likely means we will see some changes to their side with just one shot on target across these two games as well. Leroy will remain in goal, but Youssouf, Gonzales and Vidal should remain in defence. Riad Nouri should come in now for the suspended players, with Ben Hamed Toure set to play once more. Anthony Khelifa and Tony Strata are two names expected to play in midfield too. El Idrissy and Soumano should remain up top with Barreto and Chegra out injured for Ajaccio.
