Our prediction for this Europa League match:
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.
