Strasbourg vs Lyon Prediction & Match Preview

Strasbourg vs Lyon
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 18th October 2020
Kick off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau.

Strasbourg will have a difficult match to handle on Sunday when they take on Lyon.

The home side have started the Ligue 1 campaign in poor form with just 1 win in their first six games. The club are in 18th place with just a single point and their last game ended in a 3-0 defeat at home to Lille.

The worrying aspect isn’t just the amount of losses that Strasbourg are totalling up but also the goals. They have already conceded 13 goals and that is equally the most alongside Lorient and bottom club Dijon.

Lyon much like last season have not started as strong as they should be doing and they could be playing catch up very soon. Whilst they have only lost 1 game so far they have also only won once. The majority of their games has ended in draws and they come into this encounter in 14th place.

Lyon are already 5 points behind PSG and 7 points behind the league leaders Rennes. They have drawn 3 games in a row coming into this game with their last match ending 1-1 v Marseille.

Strasbourg vs Lyon: Head to Head

  • Last season Lyon won this fixture 2-1.
  • Both teams have scored in the last 3 meetings in a row.
  • There is an 80% chance to see over 2.5 goals.

Strasbourg vs Lyon: Prediction

We think we will see an open game and end to end football. Strasbourg have struggled but they usually are the team who up their game when facing one of the bigger sides in France. They really pushed Monaco lately losing that game 3-2 and we think they can give Lyon a hard time.

This is why one of our choices will be to see goals and there is a high win rate for this to happen. We will also back Lyon to get back on track and win this game. They need a win to get their confidence back.

Another game with dropped points will put Lyon under real pressure, a win could see the club climb into the top 10.

Strasbourg vs Lyon Bet Tips:

  • Lyon to beat Strasbourg at 2.10 (11/10)
  • Over 2.5 goals at 2.10 (11/10).
