Strasbourg vs Lyon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 12th May 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg).
This match could be the game of the weekend in France as both teams need wins for different reasons. For Strasbourg it is to survive in Ligue 1 as they are in 17th place and could be dragged down to the bottom three with a loss. For Lyon it is to maintain 2nd position and to finish in a Champions League place with both Monaco and Marseille in hot pursuit.
Strasbourg’s form has been very poor and they lost again last weekend this time to Rennes. They have no wins since the beginning of the year and it has been a very difficult time for the club who continue to ship goals.
On form Lyon has been the best team in Ligue 1 with 5 straight wins and since they were knocked out of the Europa League they didn’t feel sorry for themselves and just concentrated on the league, this attitude has paid dividends for the club.
A win here would be massive for Lyon as they only have a 2 point advantage and if they do not get the right results in the remaining last two games they could be playing Europa League football again. Away form is excellent with 3 wins in a row coming into this game and they have lost just 3 games all season.
Strasbourg vs Lyon: Head to Head
- Lyon beat Strasbourg earlier in the season winning 4-0
- In the last 5 meetings Lyon has scored 18 goals against Strasbourg
Strasbourg vs Lyon: Prediction
Lyon are on fire and should be able to win this game with ease. They have a confidence about them which says they would be able to beat any team in France at this moment. Lyon’s target is 2nd place and it looks impossible not to see them claim that.
