Strasbourg vs Lille
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 4th October 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau.
Strasbourg have lost 4 of their first five games and come into this encounter in 18th place.
The clubs only win so far is telling as it was against the current bottom side Dijon. Last weekend they lost their fourth game of the season against Monaco although they almost came back in that game but ended up losing 3-2.
Strasbourg have scored just 4 goals and already conceded 10 and they need to start winning games or they could get trapped down there in the relegation zone.
Lille are unbeaten after five games and are in 2nd place with 11 points, they have acquired 3 wins and 2 draws. Last weekend they got a good solid win against Nantes winning that one 2-0.
It is true that on the road so far Lille haven’t been as impressive narrowly beating Reims who have been poor so far this season and then claiming a draw against Marseille, but the club will be the favourites to win this match.
Strasbourg vs Lille: Head to Head
Last season Lille won this fixture 2-1.
In the league it has been six games since Strasbourg claimed victory over Lille and it last came in 2017 at home when they won 3-0.

Strasbourg vs Lille: Prediction
We are going to give Strasbourg some leeway here and take them to get through this game on the double chance, meaning a draw is still good for the win.
Lille are the better side and they could win this and it wouldn’t be seen as shock but at the same time Strasbourg in order to survive need to start picking up points at home.
Lille have started the season well but in all honesty they have failed to impress anyone when playing away, maybe Strasbourg can spring them a surprise with a different approach and formation which has been promised.
