Caen vs Strasbourg
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 17th February 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Michel d’Ornano (Caen).
Caen keep on losing and their latest defeat came in midweek when they played Nantes at this stadium and lost 1-0, their form reads 5 games lost in a row and they have plunged to 19th place.
Caen have just 3 wins this season and even though they have a good chance on paper to escape the bottom three the feeling is the club could be doomed if they don’t start picking up points in the next few weeks. At home they have lost 3 games in a row with their last victory coming against Toulouse before Christmas.
Strasbourg are 17 points in front of their hosts and just 5 points from a top 4 place. But the club have hit bad form where they have lost their last two games in a row. The club have won 16 points from a possible 36 away from home and their last away game ended in a 2-1 loss to Saint Etienne. However the club have won 33% of their games on the road.
Caen vs Strasbourg: Head to Head
- Earlier this season the teams drew 2-2.
- Last season Caen won this fixture 2-0.
- Strasbourg have not won at this ground since 2005.
- The last 3 meetings played at Caen have all ended in under 2.5 goals.
Caen vs Strasbourg: Prediction
Overall Caen have been poor but at home they are no conceding many goals and games have been quite tight. They have a good record against Strasbourg at home and both sides come into this match in poor form.
We are happy to take the double chance on the home side which will also cover us if the game ends in a draw.
Caen of course have the motivation to try and escape the bottom three and the away side need to find back their form to get into the top 4, this should be a very close game.
Caen vs Strasbourg: Bet Tips
