Local rivals Lille and Lens are set to face off at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in a Ligue 1 encounter on March 29, 2024. Lille is currently fourth in the league with 43 points, while Lens is sitting sixth with 42 points, making this a highly intense Derby du Nord.

Lille entered the international break maintaining an unbeaten run in March across competitions and drawing back-to-back games in Ligue 1. In their previous match, they clinched a 1-1 draw against second-placed Brest, where Martín Satriano equalized in the 79th minute after Jonathan David opened the scoring for Brest in the 67th minute.

Lens, on the other hand, suffered a 3-1 defeat to Nice in their last match, which ended their two-game winning streak. Elye Wahi managed to score a consolation goal in the 76th minute assisted by Wesley Saïd.

History wise, out of 118 encounters, Lille leads 45-37 and Lens has been winless against Lille in their last three matchups, with the recent two games ending in a 1-1 tie. Lille also boasts an unbeaten home record, with 13 games without a loss and eight clean sheets. Meanwhile, Lens has maintained an unbeaten away run in Ligue 1 in 2024, winning three and maintaining the same number of clean sheets.

Head coach Paulo Fonseca will manage Lille without the services of Samuel Umtiti, Rafael Fernandes, and Tiago Morais due to injuries, while Lens will miss Abdukodir Khusanov due to a yellow card accumulation.

Given Lille's recent home record in Ligue 1, they are expected to secure a narrow win over Lens.
