RC Lens vs Freiburg Prediction and Betting Tips | February 15th 2024


RC Lens and Freiburg return to action in the Europa League when they lock horns in the first leg of the playoff round on Thursday.

German outfit Freiburg travel to the Stade Bollaert-Delelis on a run of three consecutive defeats and will be looking to end this dry spell.

Meanwhile, Lens took another stride towards securing Champions League football next season as they picked up a 3-1 victory over Strasbourg in Ligue 1 last Saturday.

Franck Haise’s men have now won three games on the bounce, scoring six goals and keeping two clean sheets since their 2-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain on January 14.

Lens will now look to keep the run going as they kick off their Europa League campaign after crashing out of the Champions League following a third-placed finish in Group B.

Freiburg, on the other hand, failed to arrest their slump in the German Bundesliga and suffered a 3-0 defeat against Borussia Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park last Friday.

Christian Streich’s side have conceded nine goals and scored only twice during their run of three straight defeats, since scraping a 3-2 victory over Hoffenheim on January 20.

Freiburg now turn their sights to the Europa League, where they finished as runners-up in Group A after picking up 12 points from six matches.
