Goal Statistics

Lens have been consistent in attack of late, scoring in 9 consecutive Ligue 1 games. Their PG of 1.7 against Le Havre on Saturday suggests they're likely to extend that run.

A truly dismal PG of just 0.9 should cause concerns for Le Havre fans, as should a 8 Ligue 1 games run in which they have failed to score more than 1 goal.
