However, the previous round Lens had to end the 13-match unbeaten circuit in the French league (won 6) when losing to defending champion PSG 1-2. This round, Lens continues to face another very strong opponent, Lille - the team that is leading in the standings. 

Like Lens, Lille performed exceptionally well. Not listed as a candidate for the championship, but now Lille is "holding the flag" in the race to the throne. Coach Christophe Galtier's team has earned 13/15 absolute points in the last 5 rounds to be 1 point away from the 2nd team, the giant PSG. 

On away field, Lille also won the last 3 matches according to expertise and Asian handicap. Further, Lille is unbeaten in the last 12 trips away from home (winning 10), in which 8 matches still keep a clean sheet.

In the list of "owners" defeated at the hands of Lille there are such names as Rennes, PSG or Lyon. Moreover, Lille has never lost to Lens in the last 12 encounters in the Ligue 1 arena (won 9).
