Lille vs Strasbourg
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 28th February 2021
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
Lille beat Lorient 4-1 away from home last weekend and then received a huge boost as PSG lost at home against Monaco. It means that Lille has a 4 point lead over the dominating champions.
However that is just 3 points over Lyon who are still in the title hunt. The pressure remains on Lille but each week they are getting the right results and moving on. They will be the odds on favourites to win this game but at the same time will they at one point drop points?
Lille did just that a few weeks ago as Brest surprised them at home with a draw and Lille has only dropped 8 points at home so far. Home form hasn’t been the best recently either with 2 wins from five games which simply isn’t good enough if you are going for the league title.
Strasbourg are in 15th place and their hosts have double the points of them. Strasbourg drew 0-0 in their game against Angers and recent form has been decent with just one defeat in their last four games.
Away from home though Strasbourg have lost seven games from 13 though they did surprise many by winning their last away game 2-1 against Metz.
Lille vs Strasbourg: Head to Head
- Last season Lille won this game 2-0.
- Earlier in the season in the reverse fixture Lille won 3-0.
- Lille have won the last 3 league meetings in a row and Strasbourg have not recorded a victory over Lille since 2017, but 2007 when playing away from home.
Lille vs Strasbourg: Prediction
Lille of course are the favourites and should be able to find a way to win although we can’t deny that they have struggled a little at home lately and been patchy. Still Lille has the quality of players to open up their opponents and they should be able to find the goals to win this match.
Lille have a great record over Strasbourg and of course PSG and Lyon will be watching this game closely to see if Lille slip up. We don’t think they will and we will back them to win on the handicap price.
