FRANCE .... LIGUE 1
RACING CLUB LENS - LILLE OSC
Try as I might, I find it impossible to get away from the draw in this game. The two sides sit two points clear of the relegation zone, with this game in hand and a superior goal difference, to the teams below them in the table. So, a point for each, will give them a three point + advantage, over the chasing clubs, with both also having a home game this coming weekend.
If that was not enough, RCL are 4-7-2 at home and have drawn 4 of their last 6 starts. Lille are draw specialists and have finished all square in 6 from 10 and in 15 of all 27, Ligue 1 fixtures this season.
H2h record also offers plenty of encouragement, with four of the last seven meetings in Lens ending in a stalemate.
4.5 points draw 2.90 + general quote.
