We have a mouthwatering tie in Ligue 1 this weekend as Lens face Marseille in a game that could have major title implications.
Lens currently sit 3rd in Ligue 1 with twenty wins, nine draws and four losses from thirty-three games this season.
The Blood and Gold have had an outstanding campaign in Ligue 1 as they find themselves competing for an automatic Champions League spot and, possibly, even more.
They enter this game in excellent form having won four of their last five matches, the most recent of which was a 1-0 win away at Toulouse.
The win was Lens' second in a row and it came via a goal from Loïs Openda, a strike that marked the Belgian's fourth in his last five matches.
Lens' form at home has been excellent this season having won fourteen, drawn one and lost one of their sixteen games on home soil this season having also won four of their last five.
Lens sit just one point behind Marseille as things stand but they're also just six points behind PSG. If Lens win all of their remaining games this season, which is perfectly possible, then there's a real, albeit slim, chance that they end up as champions.
Marseille currently sit 2nd in Ligue 1 with twenty-one wins, seven draws and five losses from thirty-three games this season.
Igor Tudor's men have had a fantastic campaign this time out and they enter the final five games of the season in title contention despite their fate resting out of their own hands.
They currently sit five points behind leaders PSG so any chance they have of winning the title is a slim one, but if they win all five of their remaining games it's by no means impossible.
The enter this game in good form having gone unbeaten in their last eight matches having won their last three on the bounce.
Their most recent game saw them claim a huge 2-1 win over Auxerre courtesy of a late comeback following goals from Cengiz Under and Alexis Sanchez inside the final fifteen minutes.
Their away form is very strong having won four and drawn one of their last five on the road, and they'll need to maintain that form heading into this game given Lens' strength at home.
Marseille were beaten 0-1 by Lens when the two sides met back in October so they'll be desperate to get back what would be a gargantuan victory. This game will likely be extremely tight with any potential winner narrowly edging proceedings.
For our Lens vs. Marseille prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.
