Lens vs Sevilla Match Prediction and Tips for Fantasy Gaming

As Lens prepares to host Sevilla on December 12, 2023, the stage is set for an intriguing clash of football titans. Lens boasts an impressive track record at home, securing victories in their last three games while maintaining two clean sheets. Remarkably, they hold a perfect home record against Spanish teams in European competitions, having scored 12 goals and conceded five times in four games.

Manager Franck Haise faces challenges with the absence of key players Jimmy Cabot and Deiver Machado due to injuries. However, the return of Florian Sotoca, previously suspended in the Ligue 1 game against Montpellier, adds depth to Lens’ starting XI.

Sevilla’s Dilemma

On the other side, Sevilla, led by boss Diego Alonso, grapple with a turbulent season, clinching only two wins in 15 games across competitions, both in away fixtures in the Copa del Rey. The team faces a formidable absentee list for their trip to northern France, with Lucas Ocampos and Fernando suspended following red cards in the PSV loss. Additionally, injuries to Dodi Lukebakio, Jesus Navas, Loic Bade, Erik Lamela, and Suso further deplete Sevilla’s lineup.

Set against this backdrop, Lens will play in front of a sold-out stadium, creating an electric atmosphere for the encounter. Given Sevilla’s recent struggles and extensive absentee list, the home team is poised to secure a narrow victory.
