Lille vs Strasbourg
France Ligue 1
Date: Friday 9th November 2018
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille)
Lille’s fantastic start to the season was ended last weekend when they travelled to Paris to play PSG and lost. Although it was a performance that they could be proud of and in the end they only lost 2-1.
However this loss meant that the club dropped to 3rd place and are now 11 points behind PSG. They also let Montpellier into 2nd place. Lille should not be licking their wounds too much as they have been superb this season and losing away to PSG seemed inevitable. Now they are back at home where they will be expected to beat Strasbourg. Lille have a 100% record at home with 6 wins from 6 games.
Strasbourg are doing fairly well themselves and come into this game in 7th place on 17 points. Form is good as they haven’t lost a game since the end of September but their matches have been dogged down by too many draws. Away from home they have drawn 3 of their last 4 games. But they have also lost against the likes of Lyon and Marseille.
Lille vs Strasbourg: Head to Head
- Last season Lille won this game 2-1.
- Lille have only won 2 of the last 5 games at home to Strasbourg.
- 3 of the last 5 meetings have been 0-0 at half time.
Lille vs Strasbourg: Prediction
This won’t be an easy game for Lille but our tip is for the home side to just have enough quality to power through this game. Lille are devastating up front and especially at home and would have been raring to go since last week’s PSG defeat. This is worth a medium stake but we believe the home side will get all 3 points.
