French Ligue 1

Saturday, 21st February, 19:00 UK Time

At the end of the first half of the season in Ligue 1, Caen appeared relegation fodder. But matters have been turned on their head in the new year with the northern French side winning four of their last five games, more than they won in the whole first half of the campaign. Their fifth match in the run was a draw away at Paris Saint-Germain, coming from 2-0 down to secure a point with a 2-2 result. Confidence is therefore sure to be high and with all the club's last three home games won, this appears to be a new Caen. As such, they will fancy their chances when Lens come to town.

If Caen will be confident of avoiding relegation then second bottom Lens may not. On a poor run, Lens have not won since 19th December, meaning they have gone seven games without a win, a sequence of three draws and four defeats. They have also not won on the road since October, something which does not inspire confidence. Lens would probably be happy with a draw from this fixture, given Caen's current form. But they really need a win, such is their league position, six points from safety.

Caen's good form means they stand out as a good value bet to win this at 2.00.
