On October 31 2016 at 19:30 at the pitch of the Francis-Le Ble Stadium in the regular game of the 13th matchday of the French Ligue 2 Brest meet Lens.
Brest finished the previous season in the middle of the standings. Yet, their results at the start of the currents championship let them be the leaders of the Ligue 2 and be one of the probable teams to promote at the end of the league. The victory against Laval last weekend was their seventh victory in the season and the lossless series of the team is now 6 games in a raw.
Lens are the ordinary middle peasants of the Ligue 2 and are not getting any close to the possible promotion. They mostly take places in the middle of the standings and seem to be pleased with such results. Even though they have made a few mistakes in the starting games of the championship, they are still on the 7th position in the standings with 18 points gained. In the latest games Lens drew twice and won three times.
Brest have a small advantages in victories in the history of head-to-heads of the teams. Last time they met in February this year and Lens won 2:0. In fact, Lens only won one game at the home ground of Brest and lost three times. Brest are the leaders and the favorites of the Ligue 1 and just are to win against the middle peasants of the championship.
Prediction for the match: Brest to win.
