Strasbourg v Lille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 1st February 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau.
Strasbourg are in 8th place and are in very good form having won 4 of their last 5 games. But it was their last result that raised eyebrows a fantastic 3-1 win over Monaco, and it was away from home.
The home side have 30 points and could climb into the top 6 with a win here. At home the form continues with just two losses all season and they have picked up 20 points from their 10 home games so far.
Lille lost 2-0 at home to PSG to mark their first home defeat of the season. They are in 7th place and one point in front of their hosts. Lille’s form has really nosedived, and they have lost their last 3 games in a row.
The big problem for the club has been their away form and based on it they would be in 18th place. They have won just once on the road this season and have lost 70% of their games away from home.
Strasbourg vs Lille: Head to Head
Last season this fixture ended 1-1.
Earlier in the season in the reverse match Lille won 2-0.
In the league Lille have not won at Strasbourg since 2008.
The last 4 meetings home or away have all ended in under 2.5 goals.
Strasbourg vs Lille: Prediction
Lille have been very poor on the road this season and nothing suggests that could change against a solid Strasbourg side who could go past them in the league with a win.
This game should be very close but we will opt for the home side to win the game and collect all three points.
We will also back more goals to be scored in the 2nd half and think this will be a typical game that opens up more as the game goes on.
Don’t expect a big score line, as Strasbourg will try and pack the midfield out and claim the pitch the longer the game goes on.
