Lens vs. Sevilla Preview (What To Know Before Betting)
Lens vs. Sevilla
In their last Champions League Group B encounter on Tuesday, Lens and Sevilla engage in a straight shootout for the consolation prize of Europa League football at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis.
The hosts, holding a three-point advantage over the winless Europa League holders, only need to avoid defeat to prevent Los Palanganas from earning another shot at redemption in the continent’s secondary tournament.
While Lens demonstrated defensive prowess in their 2-1 victory over Arsenal in October, their defensive excellence faltered during last month’s visit to North London, resulting in a 6-0 defeat. Arsenal’s six-goal onslaught, with contributions from different scorers, secured their passage to the last 16 as group winners. PSV Eindhoven’s remarkable comeback against Sevilla on the penultimate matchday confirmed that Lens’ first Champions League adventure in 21 years will end at the group stage.

However, the third-placed Sang et Or still have control over their Europa League fate. They can secure a spot in the knockout round playoffs of Europe’s secondary tournament if they manage to secure at least a point against Sevilla on Tuesday. In contrast, defeat would eliminate them from European competitions entirely due to their inferior goal difference.
What to remember – Lens vs. Sevilla
Facing challenges with reinforcements in all areas and experiencing domestic struggles, Sevilla’s trip to France is filled more with hope than expectation. Lens, a formidable force, especially in front of their expectant crowd, poses a tough challenge.
While Lens may not have consistently dazzled in recent attacking performances, their encounter with a depleted Sevilla backline suggests an opportunity for them to find the net at least once and secure Europa League qualification.
