Freiburg vs Lens: Match Preview and Prediction

Freiburg vs Lens: Freiburg has lost one of its last nine home games in all competitions. Freiburg won the first leg at Stade Bollaert-Delelis seven days earlier. Lens has scored fewer than three goals in five of its last six games in all competitions.

On Thursday night at the Europa-Park Stadion, Freiburg and Lens will play the UEFA Europa League elimination round playoff replay. The first match in France seven days ago ended in a draw. Freiburg was more dangerous for 90 minutes, allowing only one shot on goal.

In their recent home games, Freiburg hasn’t had the best of starts. They have only scored one point in their last four Bundesliga games. In all four of these contests, Christian Streich’s team gave up three goals or more. The stretch included a Sunday afternoon 3-3 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt at Europa-Park Stadion.

Last weekend, Lens stretched their unbeaten streak to five games. Four days ago, they shared the spoils in a 1-1 tie with Reims. Franck Haise, the head coach, is happy with his team’s recent defensive performances. Lens has only given up one goal in their last five games in all competitions.

Freiburg vs Lens: Betting Analysis

Freiburg and Lens will only play each other twice in head-to-head competition. The first match took place in France seven days ago. The result was a scoreless tie. Freiburg has only lost once in their last nine home games in all competitions, despite their recent domestic problems.

Four of their last six home games have seen two or more goals. In the first match on French soil last week, Germany created more chances. Lens only scored one goal and earned one point in three UEFA Champions League group stage away matches. Based on what we saw in their first match at Stade Bollaert-Delelis seven days ago, we prefer the 2.25 odds for the home win.

Under Haise, Lens plays football with a defensive mentality. Out of the six prior games they had played across all competitions, only one had three goals or more. In the first leg of this Europa League match, we too did not witness any goals. With the Under 2.5 goals FT selection at 1.85 odds, the value is respectable.
