The Champions League returns on Tuesday after the recent international break, and one of the best games on Matchday three should occur at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis as Lens host PSV Eindhoven.

With Arsenal and Sevilla also in the group, neither fan base would have expected to top the pile after the first two fixtures, but that is where Lens find themselves after their come-from-behind win over the Gunners on Matchday two.

PSV Eindhoven sadly props up the other three teams, but they do have a point to their name and will feel they can pick up a result after a strong run of form domestically.

Lens vs PSV Eindhoven Betting Tips

Match odds

Lens are 13/10 to win on home soil, while the draw is available at 23/10. PSV are 7/4 to succeed on their travels, and that offers some good value. The Dutch outfit have won five of their last six contests in all competitions, and they will travel to France in a confident mood.

A high-scoring game is expected on Tuesday, with over 2.5 goals priced at 8/11, while both teams to score is even shorter at 4/7.

Both Lens forward Elye Wahi and PSV Eindhoven’s Luuk De Jong are 7/4 to score anytime, while those that fancy an attacking contest can back over 10.5 corners at EVS.

Team news

Wahi missed Friday’s 0-0 draw in Ligue 1 against Le Havre through suspension, but he returns to spearhead Lens’ attack.

Jimmy Cabot and Wuilker Farinez are still on the sidelines nursing ACL injuries, while Kevin Danso and Massadio Haidara should both be available after returning from injury against Le Havre.

Deiver Machado missed out after returning late from international duty, so he will be determined to return to the starting XI on Tuesday.

PSV pair Armando Obispo and Mauro Junior are in the treatment room nursing knee injuries, and Tuesday’s game will come too soon for them.

Noa Lang’s hamstring injury should keep him on the sidelines, but Peter Bosz should have both Isaac Babadi and Malik Tillman back available after they recently returned to full fitness.

Draw @ 23/10

 Lens have been the surprise package in the Champions League this season after they followed up a 1-1 draw with Sevilla by beating Arsenal 2-1.

Lens started the season slowly, failing to win any of their first six matches, but they have since enjoyed a six-game unbeaten run lately. That proves Lens are tough to break down, and they have already beaten Arsenal at home in the Champions League despite the Premier League giants hitting the front in that contest inside 15 minutes.

However, PSV lead the way in the Eredivisie, and they have only lost once all season, with Arsenal beating them 4-0 at the Emirates on Matchday one.

These two are in good form, and they may well cancel each other out in France.

Over 2.5 goals @ 8/11

 Lens’ previous two games have been close battles, but their matches at home have been lively affairs. Four of their last five games have contained over 2.5 goals, while PSV’s games have been even more entertaining.

The Dutch giants’ last four matches have all contained four goals, and it would be a surprise to see this game be a low-scoring contest.
