Lyon vs Strasbourg
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 6th February 2021
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Groupama Stadium (Lyon).
Lyon have won 3 games in a row and in midweek they were made to work hard but got an important 1-0 victory over Dijon who are in 19th place.
The dream is still on for Lyon to win the league title and they are ahead of PSG by 1 point and in 2nd place. Lyon currently trail Lille by 2 points.
Lyon’s form is good and at home they have won 7 of their games from 11 and lost just once. Although in their last five games at home the club has dropped 5 points, but they did win their last home game beating Bordeaux 2-1.
Strasbourg are 24 points behind their hosts and are having a quite different season. With 25 points so far the club are not out of the woods and could still get involved in a relegation battle as they are just six points clear of the bottom three.
Form has certainly improved for Strasbourg though with just one defeat in their last five games. Their last match ended in an entertaining 2-2 draw at home to Brest.

Lyon vs Strasbourg Prediction
Lyon are around 1.44 to win the game which is quite short odds for value but at the same time it is understandable given they are going for the league and are in very good form.
Instead of the win market we will concentrate on the goal one and Tinotenda Kadewere has been in good form for the club and works hard. He has been put more in a forward position when Lyon have played at home and we should back him to score in the game.
For added value we will also back the correct score, and this will be in Lyon’s favour as we don’t expect them to lose the game.
