Strasbourg vs Lyon Prediction & Betting tips
The last four games between RC Strasbourg and Olympique Lyonnais had hits from both teams. Can we also expect a hit from both teams on Sunday afternoon?
With five defeats in the first six rounds, RC Strasbourg has started the new season anything but well. Only last player Dijon was defeated 1-0 in the fourth round and then a 3-2 defeat against AS Monaco and a 3-0 defeat against Lille followed. With only three points, le Racing can be found in a disappointing eighteenth place, already four points behind in shared fourteenth place.
With only four goals in six games, Thierry Laurey’s side is not doing well on the offensive, but on the defensive, le Racing’s performance is even weaker. Thirteen goals have already been taken in six games. That is an average of no less than 0.98 goal against per game more than last season. That is actually quite surprising, because Laurey still has the same defenders last season.
With great aspirations, Olympique Lyonnais started the new season at the end of August, but so far the performance of les Gones has been disappointing. In the season opener against Dijon, it was still scored 4-1, but then Girondins de Bordeaux, Montpellier, Nîmes Olympique, Lorient and Olympique Marseille were not beaten. With only seven points, Rudi Garcia’s team can be found in an inglorious fourteenth place, far from the European tickets.
Given that Olympique Lyonnais did not manage to win a European ticket last season, it seemed for a long time that Memphis Depay would make a transfer, especially when Ronald Koeman was appointed as coach of FC Barcelona. However, that transfer was canceled due to financial problems at the Spanish top club and therefore the Dutchman will play in France at least until the winter break. Depay started the last games on the bench, but now it seems that the Dutchman will be an undisputed basic player again at les Gones.
