Caen vs Strasbourg Prediction & Betting tips
Caen and RC Strasbourg are both without victory in the February competition and have done bad business for the rankings. Does one of the teams know how to win Sunday afternoon?
Of all the teams in the Ligue 1, Caen did the worst things in the last few weeks by getting zero points from the last five games with a goal balance of -7 (1-8). In his own home, Caen had an excellent chance to win again in the competition last Wednesday by being able to stay with a man on the field after more than half an hour. In the second half, however, Caen did not score, while Nantes did score from a penalty and took the full booty. Because of the twelfth defeat of the season, Caen is now in the penultimate spot with only eighteen points after 24 games, a relative worsening of 25% compared to the previous season.
In home games, Caen is hardly impressed this season with only two victories in twelve games (against Amiens and Toulouse) in the Stade Michel d’ornago this season, four draws and six defeats. With an average of only 0.83 goals per game, the attack line also makes little impression this season, especially as it only scored once in the last five games. In addition, eleven league matches have already been collected at least one hit in a row, figures that match a relegation candidate. Given the relative weight of the program, it is important that in the upcoming matches against RC Strasbourg and Toulouse points are caught, something earlier this season already succeeded with a 2-2 draw to visit at RC Strasbourg and a 2-1 victory at Toulouse.
From the first four games of this season, RC Strasbourg won four points, but after that there was always a maximum of one lost per four matches and Thierry Laurey’s team was on the way to being placed for European football. The last two games went well wrong for Le Racing, which went down 2-1 against Angers and AS Saint-Étienne. In both games, the team of Laurey first came a 2-0 deficit and only then in the final phase to make the tie goal. Because of the two losses in a row, Le Racing can still be found in the left-hand row, but the gap on the number eleven, Nîmes Olympique, is only two points.
A remarkable statistic of RC Strasbourg is that only 245 shots were fired in 24 games this season, a number that only low flyers Toulouse, En Avant Guingamp and Caen were unable to achieve. Due to the high percentage of the number of shots that eventually went on target, Laurey’s team nevertheless belongs to the eight best teams in terms of the number of shots on target this season. Only league-leader Paris Saint-Germain has a higher conversion rate of goal attempts to goals (on average one goal per five goals), but Le Racing certainly does not have bad statistics with an average of one goal per six shots, a lot better than Caen that scores an average of one goal from ten goal attempts.
