At the Bollaert-Delelis stadium, those of La Sangre and el Oro will arrive with 21 points and in fourth place in the tournament, after losing last weekend to Olympique de Lyon, a setback that cost them second position.

Lens will only regret tonight the absences due to injury of Colombian defender Deiver Machado and due to suspension of goalkeeper Jean-Louis Leca, while Cameroonian Ignatius Ganago will be with the group to recover from his knee problems.

The locals will be clear favorites against a Troyes who ranks fourteenth with 13 units, although in his last three outings on the court he won twice and tied the other.

A victory for Lens would place it second in the standings, only behind PSG (31), displacing Nice (23) and Olympique de Marseille (22), teams that will play this weekend.

Tomorrow, in the continuation of date 13, the Parisian leaders will visit Bordeaux, while on Sunday, the current sub-leader Nice will host Montpellier and Marseille will be local against Metz, penultimate place in Ligue 1.
