Strasbourg vs Lille
French Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 22 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg).
Friday’s action in the 26th round of French Ligue 1 is going to be closed with the clash between Strasbourg and Lille.
Home side is enjoying a good campaign as they are positioned in the middle of the table being far away from the danger. However, they had the chance to get involved in the battles for the continental cup spots and poor form is keeping the hosts away from the top five.
Strasbourg managed to pick up just a point from the last three occasions, yet not far from Saint Etienne who are four points ahead of them. Thierry Laurey’s side is putting fine home displays, but their unbeatable streak at home came to an end in the latest match.
Lille are the biggest overachievers this season as they are sitting on the 2nd spot although they barely manged to keep their heads above the water at the end of the latest campaign. They haven’t lost six times in a row in League 1 and during that period they allowed just a point to their rivals.
Nicolas Pepe and the lads are four points ahead of Lyon, but they are pretty far from challenging PSG in the title race. The visitors are one of the most efficient teams in the competition, while their defence is doing a very good job.
Strasbourg vs Lille: Head-to-head
The hosts have been a bit better lately in their head to head clashes as they managed to beat their rivals three times in the last five encounters.
Although their latest clash ended with a goalless draw, the crowd have usually been able to enjoy at least three goals when these two sides are facing each other.
Strasbourg managed to keep the clean sheet in their last two clashes.
Strasbourg vs Lille: Prediction
This is going to be a very exciting clash and both sides have the chance to pick up points from this one. We believe the fairest outcome should be a draw which should keep both teams in the good position for achieving their goals.
Both sides have been involved in pretty high scoring matches lately, except for the latest round. They should continue the tradition of their head to head clashes and we are expecting to see at least a goal in each net at the end of the match.
