Strasbourg – Lokomotiv Plovdiv, Europa League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR STRASBOURG - LOKOMOTIV
Strasbourg is unlikely to afford more arbitrariness. They played a little frivolously in the first game in some moments. They were not so concentrated and could even be punished by Loko Plovdiv, who were with a man less than the entire 2nd half. In addition, the French had missed a bunch of situations that would have dealt with the clash even then, so if it was the case the rematch would be with no matter.
Loko Plovdiv is in the mood for this game. They took a great victory over Arda last round in the Efbet League with 5-2, which proved their potential in attack once again. This is unlikely to benefit against Strasbourg. But it should be borne in mind that even before the two matches Lokomotiv were solid underdogs and now we expect them to go to France and play as they have done so far and not fall into deaf defense.
Expert view : It is unlikely that Lokomotiv has any chance. Especially judging from their match with Trnava. Then Spartak smashed them and scored them 3 goals as they went in the game with a man less than almost all the time. Well, Strasbourg are much better and we doubt that they underestimate their opponent. We are expecting fast goals for Strasbourg and killing pace as Lokomotiv is unlikely to score. Prediction – Strasbourg -1.5 AH at 1.86.
Loko Plovdiv has only lost in their away games in LE in history
Strasbourg has no loss in 7 of its LE home games
