Ligue 1: at what time and on which channel can you watch Lens-Lille?

2023-10-08T04:53:53.169Z

Highlights: Lens and Lille meet in the 107th edition of the Hauts-de-France derby. The match will be broadcast on Prime Video at 17:5 p.m. on Sunday. Lille have won three times and drawn four games in the last eight trips to Lens. Lens are on a two-game winning streak in Ligue 1 and drew 2-1 with Arsenal in the Champions League on Tuesday. The Sang et Or have only won one of their last eight visits to Lens (1-0 in September 2021)


After Europe, Lens and Lille, the two teams from Hauts-de-France, meet this Sunday for a derby that is always one of the most popular teams.


Don't look at the leaderboard. The penultimate match of this 8th matchday, before Rennes-PSG which will be played in the aftermath, is one of the most eagerly awaited matches of the season for Lens and Lille supporters. Normally, the rivalry between the two clubs has been the subject of debate since 1945. Moreover, this Sunday, it will be the 107th chapter of a derby, which is probably THE derby of the former Nord-Pas-de-Calais became Hauts-de-France with the attachment of Picardy.

So if Paulo Fonseca's players, with their current 7th place, are favourites on paper, we must not forget what a trip to the Bollaert-Delelis stadium means where the chant of the Corons will still resonate with an intensity probably as strong as Tuesday against Arsenal in the Champions League. Despite everything, the statistics tip the balance in favour of Lille, who in the last 8 trips to their neighbours have won three times and drawn four games for only one win for the Sang et Or in September 2021 (1-0).

That's the theory, but that all changed this week. In European campaigns, Lille got their feet wet by being held to a 0-0 draw in the Faroes by lowly KI Klaksvik, who scored the first ever goal for a club from this archipelago in the group stage of the European Cup.

Lens in full swing

If Lille caught a cold in the Faroes in the Europa Conference League, Lens confirmed their renewed health. After a poor start to the season in Ligue 1, Franck Haise's players are on a two-game winning streak. Even better, on Tuesday, they drew 2-1 from the prestigious Arsenal in the Champions League. A competition that, obviously, has revived the runners-up of PSG last season since after two games, they are at the top of their Group B with a win and a very meritorious draw (1-1) brought back from Sevilla just before.

With this momentum, the current 15th in the League is no longer the moribund it has been since the start of the season. It remains to be seen in a match that will be broadcast this Sunday, October 8 at 17:5 p.m. on Prime Video, the main broadcaster of Ligue 1 this season. As usual, Amazon's streaming platform will go on air 20 minutes before kick-off. This match will also be broadcast simultaneously on Canal + Foot.
