RC Lens was buried too quickly before its first Champions League match in Seville. He showed up there with a sad record in the championship, but ultimately brought back an interesting draw (1-1). Enough to finally launch your season. Because since then, Franck Haise's men have had two consecutive successes in the championship, against Toulouse (2-1) and Strasbourg (0-1). Against Arsenal (9:00 p.m.), Lens will be able to count on the fervor of its public, who are returning to the Champions League at Bollaert for the first time since 2002.
The fact remains that the match promises to be difficult against the Gunners who are still undefeated this season, authors of six wins and two draws in eight matches, in all competitions. Mikel Arteta's players have just corrected Bournemouth 4-0, the same score as that inflicted on PSV Eindhoven two weeks ago, in C1. “It will be a very difficult away game,” warns Arteta. However, the Londoners arrive in Lens with full confidence and having won everything this season outside their bases (4 victories).
