Lens take on Ajaccio at Stade Bollaert-Delelis in the Coupe de la Ligue last 128.
Last season Lens finished on 6th spot in the Ligue 2 as they recorded 58 points with 39:35 goal difference. This summer the hosts played 3 friendly matches beating Waasland-Beveren (2:1) and drawing Boulogne and Arsenal (1:1 both). On top of that, Lens recorded two draws in two starting rounds of the Ligue 2 2016/17 season as they tied Niort (0:0) and Tours (2:2). We should say Lens tend to show solid performance at home as they recorded 5 wins, 3 draws and 2 defeats in 2016.

Ajaccio failed previous season, particularly business end, as they finished with 7-game winless streak. As a result, Ajaccio took 17th spot in the Ligue 2, earned 42 points with 34:42 goal difference. During their preseason, the visitors played 4 friendlies recording 2 wins and 2 losses with 11:5 goal difference. Ajaccio had a decent start of the new season as they tied Tours (0:0) and outplayed Troyes (2:1).
We should mention Lens and Ajaccio have seen over 2.5 goal scored in 1 of their last 13 head-to-heads. They tend to play careful defensive football, especially at the start of the season. That’s why we do not expect high-scoring game today.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals.
