Second day of Ligue 2. Les Sangs et Or will face the Red Star at Stade Felix Bollaert. Philippe Montanier’s players made a solid and realistic game against Orleans during the first day (0-1). A good omen to prepare the reception of the Red Star. Lens remains cautious about its goals for the season but it starts better than last year. She started with 7 losses in a row. Side of the Red Star, the first game of the championship did not go as planned. Relocated in Picardy because the Bauer Stadium is not approved to host League 2 games, the Red Star has received the Niortais in an almost empty stadium. In the pouring rain, the Chamois Niortais opened the scoring early in the second half and doubled the bet, 10 minutes later, in the 58th minute. Final score 1-2, first disappointment for this legendary club in the Paris region, which was last year in National. Not the best to prepare a trip to Lens that looks complicated.
Lens will be able to count on its audience who seems more enthusiastic with this good start, the bar of 20,000 people having been crossed.
The Red Star will, no doubt, rely on his new recruit Nicolas Douchez (ex RC Lens).
Neo Lensois, Aleksandar Radovanovic, impressed for his first appearance against Orleans.
The last confrontation between these two teams ended on the score of 3 to 2 for RC Lens.
The Red Star has never won at the Stade Felix Bollaert.
Lensois fans will be present for this first home game of the season. A twelfth man important to help the team of Philippe Montanier to confirm a good victory in Orleans. Author of a solid match, the Red Star lost his match against Niort in the first 10 minutes of the second period. A moment of absence that is expensive and it will avoid repeating in the rest of the season. In this match, the Lensois will have the psychological advantage thanks to their supporters and the victory of last week.
Bet of the day:Lens
