Strasbourg vs Lyon
France- Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 30th November 2019
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg).
Strasbourg will be looking to repeat their result from the weekend when they demolished Amiens 4-0 and the club who have already struggled at moments this season come here with some confidence. The home side have won 3 of their last four games and that has moved them up to 12th place with 18 points.
In front of their own fans Strasbourg has lost just once this season and their form at home is superb having remained unbeaten in their last 5 games and winning 4 in a row coming into this game. Strasbourg are currently scoring goals too and have netted 8 times in their last two games.
All of the above is not good news for Lyon. This is a club clearly under some transition as new coach Rudi Garcia finds his feet. Last weekend Lyon up a 2-1 win at home to Nice which was important given that they lost their first game the week before with Garcia in charge against Marseille. The latest result leaves Lyon in 9th place and they are just 3 points adrift of the top 4.
There’s little doubt that Lyon will keep climbing the table but the one reservation over the club is their away form where they have won just twice this season, and once in their last five games. Indeed from their last 15 points away from home they have won just 5 points.
Strasbourg vs Lyon: Head to Head

Strasbourg vs Lyon: Prediction
Lyon has the better team on paper and will cause Strasbourg problems but we have to respect what Strasbourg’s latest results means. Maybe they are not beating the stronger teams but they are at home and have a lot of confidence and play well against Lyon when at home.
So our pick here is to back Strasbourg to win on the double chance which will also cover us for the draw. Also look out for Ludovic Ajorque for Strasbourg who has scored a few goals in the last couple of games and the striker looks like he is on fire.
Strasbourg vs Lyon: Bet Tips:
Double Chance: Strasbourg win/draw at 1.50 (1/2)
Anytime goalscorer: Ludovic Ajorque (Strasbourg) at 3.00 (2/1).
