Freiburg vs Lens: UEFA Europa League 2023/24 Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

Lens will go to the Black Forest to play against Freiburg for the second leg of their Europa League playoff round on Thursday at Europa-Park. The first leg ended in a draw with no goals scored. It was a close match where either team could have won. This leaves the overall tie in a balanced position going into the next game.

Last week’s match ended in a draw, which was rare for Freiburg because they’ve been letting in a lot of goals in their domestic league games. Despite conceding three goals in their recent Bundesliga matches, they did well defensively against Lens. Drawing against Eintracht Frankfurt over the weekend after coming from behind multiple times could boost their confidence for the upcoming match. Even though Roland Sallai had good chances to score, Freiburg still sees the result positively. It was surprising that they didn’t score in Europe, especially since they scored a lot in the Europa League group stage. To progress in the tournament, they need to break their streak of not winning knockout games since 2001.

Lens faces a similar challenge in their European away games, as they haven’t won any of their last 14 matches on the continent. Their previous European success mostly came at home during their Champions League days. Despite returning to European competition after 16 years, Lens couldn’t capitalize on home advantage in their last game. Their only notable attacking moment was Massadio Haidara’s disallowed goal. Lens’ winning streak ended with a 1-1 draw against Reims in their domestic league. However, they’re still doing well in the league, sitting in sixth place and just four points behind second-place Brest, showing a strong recovery from a poor start to the season under coach Franck Haise.
