Already though it hasn’t been very easy for one of the biggest teams in France. An expected win over Amiens at home opened up Lyon’s campaign but then they were shocked when they lost 1-0 against newly promoted Reims away from home. Lyon will be glad to be back playing in front of their home fans.

Lyon’s star man Nabil Fekir has not played this season but is expected to make an appearance for this game after lacking match fitness.

Strasbourg have got off to a good solid start, going to Bordeaux and winning 2-0 and then earning a draw at home against St Etienne.

The side play fearless football up front and on their day can be a match for any team in the league. They are compact at the back too and they will have to be in this game as Lyon are sure to test the back four.

Lyon vs Strasbourg: Head to Head

  • Last season Lyon won this match 4-0.
  • Lyon have scored 9 goals against Strasbourg in the last 2 games played at home.

  • Strasbourg have just 1 win in the last 10 games home or away.

Lyon vs Strasbourg: Prediction

Lyon are big odds on for this game and so there isn’t a lot of value in backing them to win even though they should do.

The value is in the both teams to score market. Strasbourg have proved their worth in the first two weeks of the league and are not goal shy and could get a goal at Lyon.

If Fekir plays he will be raring to go and he should be backed to get a goal at any time. All in all this is a game that Lyon should ease to a win rather comfortably.
