Strasbourg vs Lille Prediction & Betting tips
Earlier this season, Lille managed to score no more than a 0-0 draw in-house against RC Strasbourg, despite a huge field victory and more than twenty goal attempts. Will the number two of the Ligue 1 succeed in winning a visit to Strasbourg?
For the third league game in a row, RC Strasbourg did not win last weekend. When visiting low-flyer Caen, Le Racing had no answer to the defensive wall that was erected, which ended the game in a bloodless 0-0 draw. After defeats against Angers and AS Saint-Étienne, Thierry Laurey’s team did not manage to win again, so the team from Strasbourg slipped to a shared ninth spot and was left in the left-hand row on goal-difference. With 28 points from the last eighteen league matches (seven victories, seven draws and four defeats), the performance of Le Racing is certainly not bad, but with a view to the classification it is important to finally win again.
Even if RC Strasbourg does not end in the left row, the team can look back on a successful season with in a few weeks the final of the Coupe de la Ligue against En Avant Guingamp and thus also a chance of placing for European football. In addition, the team seems to be able to catch quite a bit of money this summer for wing defender / attacker Kenny Lala, who this season in the 3-5-2 lineup of Laurey gets all the freedom to steam up on the right flank. The 27-year-old Frenchman, who is responsible for four goals and eight assits this season, recently said in an interview to find himself a modern defender who only thinks his match has succeeded as his direct opponent had to defend instead of attack. Against Caen, the Frenchman only partially succeeded, because he himself did not have many offensive actions, so the question is whether the star player of Le Racing manages to revive against Lille.
With Nicolas Pépé, Lille this season is the solid number two behind the unbeatable Paris Saint-Germain and just before the unpredictable Olympique Lyonnais. After a victory series of five league games in a row, Lille did not finish last weekend with Montpellier in a bloodless 0-0 draw, which puts the lead of Les Dogues in third place four points. In away games, Lille is still working on a series of five victories in a row in the Ligue 1, but given the three defeats in the last three matches at RC Strasbourg, it is questionable whether a win is real this round of play.
In away games, Lille is often unharmed during the first half of this season, as in twelve away games only two hits have been cashed in the first half so far, but in the end of the game the attention sometimes wants to relax at Les Dogues. In the second half, however, no less than eleven hits were cashed, half of the total number of goals against the team of Christophe Galtier this season. In total, in nine of the twelve (or 75% of the total) league matches on the move, a goal was cashed, while in eight of the twelve, including in the last five away games, was scored.
