Lens-Fribourg: at what time and on which channel to follow the Europa League play-off?

For their return to the Champions League, more than twenty years after their last participation, the Lensois could not do better than third place behind Arsenal and PSV Eindhoven. But the Artésiens finished ahead of Sevilla, and were therefore automatically transferred to the Europa League. This Thursday, February 15, Franck Haise’s men will face them from Friborg in bad shape.

The Lensois have their chances

Indeed, Christian Streich’s men remain on three defeats in a row in the Bundesliga against Bremen, Stuttgart and Dortmund. Not enough to prepare this dam at Bollaert in the best possible way. In the standings, SC Friborg is in seventh place in the championship and must absolutely win this weekend against Frankfurt so as not to be further behind the European places.

But before that, the Germans must go through the play-off box in this Europa League against Lensois who are in full swing in Ligue 1, who have just won three consecutive matches against Toulouse, Nantes and Strasbourg, rather in style. The Sang et Or return to the Europa League for the first time since the 2006-2007 season, during which they were eliminated in the round of 16 by Bayer Leverkusen.

The Europa League play-off between RC Lens and SC Friborg will be followed this Thursday, February 15 at 9 p.m. on W9 and Canal + Foot.
