Lens and Freiburg take on each other at Stade Bollaert-Delelis in what is expected to be an interesting Europa League encounter. Lens are on a three-game winning run in the Ligue 1 and, as a result, the odds for home win have been dropping. Barring any fresh injury worries, Franck Haise is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Strasbourg 3-1 at the weekend.

Christian Streich’s troops, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team extending their losing run to three games. As Freiburg conceded nine goals in total in the previous three Bundesliga matches, we are tempted to put our money on Lens this time out. Attila Szalai is widely expected to replace Manuel Gulde in the starting XI, while all Adamu, Ginter, Kyereh, Lienhart, Rosenfelder, and Schmidt should miss out with injuries for the visiting side.

Prediction: 2-1 (Lens)

Lans

"Lans" was just a little bit short of the Champions League. In the group stage, he finished in third place, losing to the second PSV only one point. Now the team will fight for access to the 1/8 finals of the Europa League with Freiburg. To say that the "blood-gold" "lucky" with the opponent - nothing to say. Before the return game, the French club needs to earn some advantage, because in Germany there may be serious difficulties. Note that "Lans" was stronger in three previous meetings - 2:0 over "Toulouse", 1:0 over "Nantes" and 3:1 over "Strasbourg".

Freiburg

"Freiburg" could not immediately get through to the 1/8 finals of the Europa League. The German club finished the last stage in second place in the Group A table. In his defense, it can be said that "West Ham" to resist is not so easy. However, the other two rivals, Olympiacos and Bacca Topola, were not much competition. As for their conditioning, it's not all smooth sailing. "Freiburg" approaches the first match of the 1/16 finals of the LE playoffs after three loosies, with a total score of 2:9 - 1:3 from Werder, 1:3 from Stuttgart and 0:3 from Borussia D.
